ICS Alumni

Polly graduated from ICS in 2015 and decided to take a Gap Year. She completed an 8 month internship at a small firm in London specialising in Information Services, a job which she actually found out about through another ICS alumnus. She also did some travelling in South East Asia and worked as a volunteer in a veterinary clinic in Egypt.

During her presentation "Gap Year – Pros and Cons", Polly spoke about a variety of Gap Year options such as working/internships, volunteering, travelling, learning a new skill or pursuing a personal passion.

Her presentation concluded with a question and answer session and a recommendation that students interested in taking a Gap Year view this helpful link: http://www.studentladder.co.uk/Gap-Year-Placement/gap-year-placements.html
