Introduction

Personal Letter Dear Chris, I am astonished to learn that you decide to have a break for two years to travel around the world at the expense of studying at university. I deeply understand that how you are tired of studying after you have just finished the first year of a medical degree. In this letter, I would like to express my opinion on this issue. Without any doubts, it is a good idea for a university student to take a gap year. Exhausted by overwhelming workload at university, students are in need of a pause during their lifetime. I am in favour of your decision to take a slower pace and explore more about the world when you still have sufficient energy for traveling at youth. ...read more.

Apart from relaxation, you would indeed learn things that are not taught at school, such as problem-solving skills. As the importance of whole-personal development is greatly emphasized in today's society, a gap year is beneficial to personal growth. During the process, you can develop maturity, learn self-reliance and enhance social skills. More importantly, you probably gain exposure to various cultures you have not experienced before. Besides, as you cannot afford the cost of the journey, it is necessary for you to apply for a job on the journey. As a result, you would not only earn some money, but also you can gain lots of working experience. Most important of all, you would become financially independent and learn to manage your budget. ...read more.

Conclusion

Although you do not really care at this stage whether you finish your degree or not, you would feel regret if you do not continue your studies. It is fortunate for you to get onto the course of medicine at university as it requires extremely high marks. If you spend two years for the journey, I am worried that you would not be able to further your studies after you have adapted to a long journey. Despite the fact that there are numerous advantages for taking a gap year, I suggest that you should take deeper considerations before your journey. However, whether to go for a gap year lies in your personal decision. If you are determined enough to take this action, I hope that you can gain a fresher outlook in your life after embarking on the journey. Best wishes, Terry ...read more.
