A gap year is a unique way to find your passion. Rishihood University encourages students to take a year off to explore different careers, travel to places, learn new skills, and more.
IGenplus Gap Year Programme is one such opportunity to explore and design your own life path post high school. This exposes the students to varied career paths and does reverse engineering on how to build themselves once they have a sufficient understanding of their chosen field.
If you took a gap year, we encourage you to mention it in your application so that our admissions office can verify your experience and inform you if you are eligible for any credit waivers.
I dropped and took a year off, without any surety of what next! During my time off, I read, watched movies, exercised, traveled, visited relatives, attended workshops and leadership camps during that time. And had there been a formal “gap year” program, I would have definitely enrolled for the same. Personally, this time off taught me more than what twelve years of formal schooling could.
Kolby DeGarmo, 19, had her admission to college rescinded when she chose to take a gap year living and working in Australia. Still, she said, it was worth it. “I loved every minute,” she said. “I would encourage other students coming out of high school to do it, especially if they are lost,” DeGarmo said. “It’s a real opportunity.”
