    This post is probably in the wrong place but oh well...
    I'm have applied to study Philosophy and Ethics with Creative Professional Writing in uni. The plan is to take a gap year from 2017-2018 and being my course in 2018. Problem is, I'm not sure what exactly I should do in that year. I currently have a part-time job as an English Tutor which I've been in for a year. Any suggestions?
    Thanks

    If you like working with Children I suggest Camp America, or if you want to stay in the UK try things like PGL. If you are looking maybe at traveling, I suggest Trek America.

    I guess it really depends on what you want to do or where you want to visit! There are literally hundreds of companies offering gap year programs and trips you will really need to research to see what appeals to you. You will also need to work out your budget and how long you want to spend. Have you thought about working abroad? As you have experience in languages you could take a TEFL course and teach English abroad? This might be the best options as you will get to do something you enjoy and get paid?

    I got a few conditional offers and I was wondering if it's possible to defer them as I think I want to take a gap year? Would I be able to do that and be guaranteed a place for 2018/2019 if I got the grades?

    Should be fine, I deferred 2 of my offers about a month ago for student finance reasons. Both ICL and Sheffield were really understanding and changed my offers within a day after I emailed them. I think if you have a valid reason your unis should understand, even if you don't they should still be ok with it.
