Project Trust Gap Year Selection Course

Once your application has been successfully processed, we will invite you to book onto a Selection Course.

Selection is a four day residential course and takes place on the Hebridean Isle of Coll in Scotland… Project Trust’s home since the 1970s.

“You learn loads about yourself, other people and other cultures which you wouldn’t experience on shorter placements or just travelling.”
