Q. What happens if I want to take a gap year?
A. Taking a gap year is fine by us – use your time to your advantage and draw from your experiences. We recruit two years in advance, so apply as far ahead as you can. Our assessment days happen in August two years before you’re due to start – so if you’re invited to come along, make sure you’re around to do so. See our application timetable for more guidance around deadlines.
