Gap Year Programs

A gap year in Sydney is the ultimate experience. Top up your international experience with an academic qualification. At the International College of Management, Sydney you could get the benefits of travel in one of the most spectacular cities in the world, without having to delay your studies.

ICMS Gap Year Programs are ideal for high school graduates seeking a transformative intellectual adventure before they go to College or pursue a future career path. Planning a gap year takes a lot of paperwork and effort and can often turn out to be a lonely experience. But at ICMS you can live with your classmates in a ‘castle’ overlooking Australia’s Best Beach (TripAdvisor 2018 & 2019) and enjoy all the fun of a gap year – without all the hassle. See new places, meet new people and experience new adventures while you improve your English or gain a qualification such as a Diploma, which is possible in only 26 weeks of study.

Australian students also love to travel too. That’s why some summer-loving domestic students chose to start their studies in trimester one (February intake) and take trimester two off to go to Europe in the European summer. This gives them the opportunity to travel five months of the year.

Improve your english
