    Does anyone here have any experience of taking an unplanned year out from Cambridge mid-degree? Was the university ok with it? How did you find it going back after a year out?

    Would it be such a bad thing to do, if you made good use of it, for example doing work experience or travelling?

    This seems like a strange question to ask. Are you planning to have an unplanned year out? Because then it's not an unplanned year out :p: If you're planning to have a year out then it's probably not possible except in certain circumstances (e.g. a year out on a language course). If it's actually unplanned, then it really depends. I mean, if you become really ill, you can be degraded and take a year out, but being degraded usually isn't voluntary.

    If you want to go travelling, why not have a gap year before going to uni, or do it after you've finished your degree?

    I'll reply properly later, but normally they only allow people to 'degrade' if they're having serious problems (medical or otherwise). Although I do know a historian who degraded for a year to go and study French history in France, so it's not impossible, but I'd imagine they'd want you to be doing something pretty structured.
