Hey, let me tell you that most universities will usually accept study gaps of 1-2 years in general. However, bigger gaps of 3-4 years will require justification on your end.

Other aspects of acceptability depend upon the course type, i.e., whether you wish to enroll in a postgraduate or undergraduate course. At the same time, you will have to prove why you took the gap year. Those taking gap years for employment purposes may have to prove their salary slips and employment documents. Those taking gap years for medical reasons will have to show documentary evidence. As a thumb rule, 1-2 gap years are accepted.

This also differs from country to country and the course one wants to pursue, most likely you will pursue a Master's so that might make acceptance of gap years more flexible in comparison to undergraduation courses. 

Let me know the country and degree you are targeting to give you more details!

Navigating the path to studying abroad can be straightforward even with a four-year educational gap. Key to your application will be how you explain this gap.

If you were working, learning new skills, or overcoming challenges, make sure to highlight these experiences in your application. Universities often appreciate diverse experiences and self-growth during such periods. 

It’s important to gather all necessary documents like transcripts, a purpose statement, recommendation letters, and possibly standardized test scores, depending on your chosen country and university.

You should also contact your target universities directly to understand their specific requirements for candidates with educational gaps. Properly showcasing how you've productively used the time off can strengthen your application.
