Did you take a gap year?

A growing number of students are taking a gap year before starting university. Were you one of them?

  • What challenges did you face after taking a year out?
  • How did you get back into study mode?
  • How did taking a gap year help you succeed at uni?
  • What do you wish someone had told you before you started your gap year?

One tip we’ve heard is “don’t throw away your Year 13 study notes as they can be a useful refresher before starting uni.”

Do you have other tips, advice or experiences to share?

UC’s Liaison team is compiling a list of tips so we can share these with students starting uni in 2019 after a gap year or with those taking a gap year in 2019.

Please share your tips and advice by clicking ‘leave a comment’ under the heading of this blog or by emailing liaison@canterbury.ac.nz

If you submit your tip before 26 June 2018, you will go in the draw to win a $50 Westfield voucher.
