    Depends on what you wish to do once you get back into education.

    Relevant work experience (depending on what you want to do), working and volunteering are normally the top three.

    Typically people travel to a different country to do volunteering, work, or just travel. It's a good opportunity to do some soul-searching and learn more about yourself, as well as travel before you dive into another few years of schooling. Others take the time off and stay local to work and save up money prior to entering uni.

    Travel somewhere, volunteer for a charity or work abroad in somewhere like Cambodia teaching little children, work domestically in retail for example, build some networks, rest a little.

    Tbh, a gap year sounds amazing but if you ain't doing anything, don't take one. Sitting at home, watching TV, eating junk, going out with friends is flippin great but how long are you going to sit at home before getting bored, getting fat, realising all your friends are too busy with uni/college?
