EDUMADIC

Learn Online While Traveling the World

We no longer have to choose between education and travel

Edumadic organizes and leads programs around the world for carefully selected groups of online learners who want to further their education and travel the world simultaneously.
Learn How it Works

Our Three Pillars

Education

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!

Community

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.

Travel

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

“Edumadic has been a priceless experience and the most smooth sailing trip of my life thanks to the trip coordinators who planned amazing weekly adventures to stunning and exciting places around the region. More importantly it has encouraged me to grow and learn, to experiment, and to reach out of my comfort zone.“
Jack
“Could I have done this trip alone? Yes. But after just the first day on my trip I remembered why I didn't. Edumadic is a community. The people in my group started to become an everyday part of my life. We worked together, ate meals together, and even collaborated on projects.”
Daphne
“Being able to combine traveling, meeting beautiful souls from all over the world and studying was a life changing experience ! I wish I could do it all over again. Bali stole my heart and I’m forever grateful to be an Edumad.”
Charlotte
"Edumadic created an ideal environment to take a few extra teaching courses online while living abroad. Not only were locations vetted and hand-picked to best suit the life of a travelling student, but the organization succeeded in bringing together a community of people all committed to pursuing online education."

You might be wondering...

What do we study?

The study aspect of our programs is entirely self-guided. You can study anything you like, provided you can do so online / remotely. We can give broad advice on where to start looking for an appropriate course (look here), and which type of educational pursuits fit best with our programs. However we cannot give specific advice on which online course or platform is best for you.

Many previous Edumads have pursued creative pursuits or developed entrepreneurial ideas while on our programs rather than studying, which we are completely 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.
