Deferral period

Hey everyone! I wish to defer my admission to UC Berkeley/ UNC Chapel Hill (still trying to decide). I was wondering which activities I can partake in during my gap year.
NOTE: I am an international student living in Nigeria. I am majoring in Biomedical Engineering.
Thank you.

I am not sure what activities will be available to you in Nigeria. For biomedical engineering or medicine, you might want to pursue an internship or volunteer activity relevant to your field of study. In the US, example activities include shadowing a doctor, becoming an EMT, volunteering at a hospital, etc. For biomedical engineering, specifically, you might want to apply for internship or volunteer positions at university research labs or private companies in the field. If you know people currently working in biomedical engineering, in Nigeria, you could leverage your contacts to try and find such a position.
