About Us


Ultimate Gap Year was set up in early 2004 to provide essential safety advice and knowledge to gap year students and career gappers.

The success of our training has been attributed to having current and ongoing involvement in student expeditions across the globe.

With backgrounds in medicine, the military and education we continue to work professionally in the field through teaching, managing and leading student groups in the UK and abroad and so can bring current expertise to inform the advice we provide.

‘Travel is not without risk. The risk needs to be kept to a minimum acceptable level without eliminating the sense of fulfilment for individuals’
