Gap year abroad
An opportunity to suspend studies for a period of six months to a year in order to gain extra experience in a subject, refine a career plan and/or discover the world!
A large variety of gap year projects abroad exist: professional experience abroad, civic service, international volunteering, activities which complement university education, improvement of foreign language proficiency, etc.
When the gap year is spent in a foreign country, the host country’s legislation applies to all relationships between the student and the hosting organisation.
A number of administrative formalities must be completed in preparation for the project (visa or passport application where necessary, insurance certificate for third-party liability, social security, etc.) For instance, all students undertaking a gap year must register on the mobility management platform and obtain advice from their International Mobility Office.
