Posted on: 17 December 2022, By : Sourav Dey (Academic Counsellor)

What is Year Gap?

A year gap is a full year of experiential learning typically taken between completion of high school and college enrolment.Year gaps are designed to provide students a vacation from academics so they can reflect on their educational and professional goals and take time to learn more about themselves.

In past Indian students do not consider it as an option due to several reasons such as visa restrictions, access to funds, financial dependence on parents, etc. But now in India, things have changed and that’s why the thinking of students has also changed with their aspiration, access to funds and also todays internet are also helping in changing their prospective on this point.

Now let’s discuss what are the benefits and loss of taking a Year Gap

After 14 years of long duration of schooling life everyone needs a break from study.

In this Internship programs offers you the chance to look out what certain career looks like in real world.

After telling you the benefits of Year Gap, now I will tell you about the loss of year gap.
1. You'll be ‘pausing’ your studies or traditional job for a year

If a year gap then, your friends will immediately move on to the college and start their career. So they will be climbing the ladder one step before you. So before selecting a year gap think about the opportunity loss associated with it.
However, you can easily cover them up if you are not ‘wasting your time’ as you are still learning.
2. There are financial and personal risk

In every decision there always be a risk present, so never neglect the risk in any decision.Budgeting, planning, and seeking assistance as needed are all necessary for risk mitigation. For most, the benefits of a year gap far outweigh the risks, but whether that is true for you depends on your unique circumstances.Joining and travelling with a year gap programme is one approach to help reduce some anxiety and danger.

3. There's the potential to waste a lot of time

When you decide to a break from the continues schedule of your study, it is more important that you know what you have to do. Because if you start thinking what to do after taking the break, it will huge waste of time. So before planning will help you to set your goals within your timeline.

While we are aware that most Indian students don't follow a natural path, taking a year off is rather unconventional
. We feel that there are several tangible and intangible benefits if it is done well with planning.
