If you are using a gap year organisation to organise your placement make sure that you research it thoroughly. Most placements go well, but there is a significant minority where students feel that the experience was nothing like that promised in the glossy brochure. So before you pay out lots of money make sure you know all about the project. You can find out more about gap year organisations on the Prospects website.
