Gap year activities of some of our recent leavers

Fiona is visiting Africa with Project Trust working voluntarily for twelve months in an orphanage in Malawi. After her gap year she hopes to go to Cardiff University, where she’ll be studying Children’s Nursing.

Edward worked from September to December as an office general assistant for a local interior designer, as a catering assistant at Downing College, spent January skiing, then 2 months teaching in Senegal with Projects Abroad and finally 3 months travelling in South East Asia. He is now studying French and Philosophy at University College London.

Ailise is committed to pursuing a medical career and used her gap year to gain experience of healthcare environments. So far she has shadowed a GP in her clinic and a care home visit. She worked at Addenbrooke's hospital as a healthcare assistant. She also attended a course in venepuncture and began work as a phlebotomist. She is investigating the possibility of a work placement in Vancouver or through the Gap Medic programme with the chance to travel and experience how medicine is practiced in other countries.

Eric is enjoying the challenge (and the pay) of the Year in Industry scheme working with Cambridge Consultants before going to university.
