    I've been at uni for four years but I'm in the third year because I took last year off. What does the last part of the sentence "I took last year off" mean?

    I take it to mean 'I was not studying last year'.

    Not a teacher.

    "I took last year off."

    As Matthew says, it means that the person did not go to university last year.
    For example: "I didn't feel like going to work on Friday, so I took the day off."

    "I took last year off" would be a better title for your post.
