Our Three Pillars


Learn through one of our education partners, or bring your own studies. Choose to pursue a degree, learn a practical skill, or explore a topic that's always interested you. It's up to you!


We handpick a group of inspiring, motivated, and fun people from our pool of applicants who we know you'd love to spend 6 weeks living and learning with.


We arrange all accommodation and logistics of the program, giving you the freedom to focus on working towards your goals, exploring the environments you're living in, and making deep connections with your fellow Edumads.

Bring your studies, we'll handle the rest

A life changing experience
“The opportunities for growth were endless. I was exposed to different cultures, inspiring travelers, beautiful sites, delectable food, and adventures galore all while keeping myself in check with studies and work.”
Erin P
“It taught me that you don’t have to choose between a dream of traveling and an education. I’ll never forget the friends I made”
“Edumadic was one of the best decisions I could have ever made for myself. Not only am I confident traveling alone now but I finally found my passion in life.”
Caitlin C
“When I first accepted my spot on the trip, I had no idea if I was making the right decision. After what I would consider to be a life changing experience, I have no doubt it was the right choice and I recommend it to anyone who is thinking about spending time abroad.”

You might be wondering...

What do we study?


The study aspect of our programs is self-guided. You can study anything you like, provided you can do so online / remotely. Edumads tend to study either towards a degree, or to attain skills that they plan to use professionally. We are happy to advise on the style of courses and educational pursuits that fit well with our programs, and have a catalog of courses that we recommend (look here). Ultimately it falls to each individual to choose courses that a best suited for their goals.

Many previous Edumads have pursued creative projects or developed entrepreneurial ideas while on our programs rather than studying, which we are also happy for you to do.

What does a typical day look like?


Once you’ve joined a program your time is entirely your own. Additionally, the way you and the rest of the group will spend their time is very dependent on which location you are living in.

Typically Edumads split their time studying into 2 sessions, one directly after breakfast until lunch, and then one in the evening once the sun sets. A couple of meals tend to be shared with the group, either in our home or at a nearby restaurant or cafe. Time in the middle of the day is usually spent being active out in the local environment. This could be anything from surfing, hiking, or sight-seeing. Most evenings we’ll also come together as a community to watch a movie, discuss the days events, or enjoy the nightlife!The best way to get a good idea of a typical day is to read our “Day in the Life” posts from previous Edumads.

Can I join more than one program?


Yes, we'd love you to!

We have a vision of a future where instead of spending 4 years working towards a degree in the confines of a classroom, people pursue their education entirely online, and travel the world for those 4 years instead. Maybe you'll be one of those early pioneers creating that future.

It all starts with one program, then two, then five. You get the idea!

After signing up to your 1st program, you're entitled to a $400 discount on every program after that, and your deposit is reduced by 50%.

Why is there an application process?


A few reasons:

Firstly, we want to make sure your expectations of what the program will be, are in line with reality. If you want to backpack around the world and are just looking for a group to do it with, we're not really for you. Edumadic programs are specifically tailored to allow you to pursue an educational goal (or something equivalent) whilst travelling. If you're not too fussed about the education, then you're better off travelling with a different company, or backpacking solo.

Secondly, most of our programs travel to locations that have vastly different cultures than those you'll find in Western Europe and North America (where most of our applicants are from). When you experience these differences in cultures and simple realities of daily life, it can come as quite a shock, and will probably take some getting used to if you haven't done much travelling in the past. People either relish the chance to experience new cultures and ways of life, or get on the next plane home, horrified by what they've seen and craving the western comforts that they took for granted before. The application process helps us figure out which camp you're in.

And finally, we've travelled extensively as backpackers in the past and know that the people you travel with are as important, if not more so, than the places you travel to. We select people with this fact at the forefront of our minds. By the end of each program, more than just happy Edumads, we want a new group of lifelong friends. By filtering applicants, we're able to significantly increase our chances of both.
