I have just found out that Defence Force Recruiting has closed its applications for the Gap Year program for next year. You can now apply for 2018!!!!
GROAN. I will check to see if there is a waiting list.
You can find other organisations that coordinate gap year experiences on the Explore Your Options page.
If you are going to take a gap year, apply for a place at uni through the normal TISC process this year, then, once you receive an offer, defer for a year.
You can change your preferences once you have had your gap year.
