Live & work as a Gap Assistant in an Australian Boarding School.

Are you a fan of white sandy beaches, lush rainforests and stunningly perfect weather? Perhaps you’re a sports fanatic, or enjoy bonding with mates over beers and an outdoor BBQ? If you answered ‘yes’ to one or more of the above, then a gap year in the land down under may be calling your name! 

Our Australian Gap Year Program offers you a taste of the Aussie lifestyle that a normal tourist could only ever dream of. Working as an assistant at a leading Australian school, you’ll be completely immersed in every aspect of typical Australian life. From the stunning tropical coastline of Northern Queensland, to the rugged and impenetrable forests of Tasmania, we offer a wide variety of school placements throughout Australia!

During school holiday periods of which there are many, you’re free to explore every corner of this wide brown land. From the parched landscapes of the Red Centre, where you can gaze awestruck at Uluru and learn about its importance to the Aboriginal Dreamtime, to the picture perfect coastal towns of Port Douglas and Cairns, where the combination of the rainforest, beach and Great Barrier Reef will make you feel as though you’ve stumbled right into a postcard. And when you’ve had just about enough of all of the disturbingly beautiful nature, you can treat yourself to the cosmopolitan delights of Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide or Brisbane.

Our Australian Gap Year Program is inclusive of meals (during term time), accommodation, weekly allowance, visa assistance, a comprehensive in-country orientation (watch our video above for more), and ongoing support from our committed team. If you find yourself in the surfing hub of the Gold Coast, you can even pop into our offices to say hi!


Placements commence in late January and mid July and conclude in December or June depending on duration and intake.


Our Australian Gap Year Program is offered as a 6 month or 12 month placement. However, schools generally prefer participants who stay for a longer period. Placement duration cannot exceed a maximum of 12 months.


In addition to complimentary food and accommodation, participants can expect to receive between AU$150.00 and AU$350.00 per week as an allowance throughout the school term.
