Study and Travel During a Gap Year in Asia

If you’re fresh out of high school or college and your future plans are still unclear, studying abroad during your gap year is the perfect way to give your life a new direction! During a gap year, you will get to know a new culture, gain valuable international experience, learn a new language and expand your world-view. Living and studying abroad will allow you to grow personally (you will become more independent and learn a lot both about yourself and others) as well as gaining valuable academic knowledge in the process! Once the gap year is over, we can safely say that you’ll have a better sense of who you are and what you want from your life.

While there are many things you could do during your gap year, like backpacking, doing an internship or volunteering, one of the best things you can do is to study abroad for one semester or even a full year. Why? You will…

  • learn new things and discover a study field you’re interested in
  • gain credits that you can later include into your degree
  • be able to travel around and do voluntary work on the side
  • do something important while exploring the world – you’re not wasting your time!
  • make new friends from all over the world

Why study for your gap year in Asia?

The Asian continent has some of the most exotic and diverse cultures in the world. In a world that grows more and more interconnected every year and with Asian countries as powerful key players, there’s more and more demand for experts in Asian languages, economies and ways of life.

The combination of fascinating cultures and amazing landscapes makes Asia a highly popular destination to spend a gap year in. This means that you’ll always run into cool things to do, like exploring the unique natural wonders, meeting the locals and getting to know their culture, as well as meeting other travellers from all over the world.


When you choose to study abroad during your gap year, you’ll be able to combine academics and earning credits with travel and life-changing experiences. You will study interesting subjects, you will live your life to the full, and you will learn things about the world and yourself that will unlock countless opportunities for your future. When you’re older, you’ll look back and see what a great impact your gap year studies have made on your life, and wonder where you would be if you hadn’t made that choice.

Spending a gap year abroad is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Make the most of it by studying abroad in Asia!
