Our Gap Year Programs are specifically designed for high school graduates, typically 18-20 years old, that haven't yet enrolled in college.
These programs are a perfect way to spend time before college, earning credit online while living all over the world with a group of your peers.
Our Gap Year Programs all include:
Edumadic organizes and leads 4 and 6 week study abroad programs for students who want to take their college classes online while living abroad.
We organize all aspects of the program, and bring together a community of like-minded online learners for you to share the experience with.
All you have to do is bring your online classes!
We built the Edumadic Academy for the more independent students who want to organize their own trips.
Inside the Academy we share everything we know about traveling the world while learning online.
From researching locations, to finding the best value accommodation, all the way to what to pack and how to avoid common pitfalls that travelers make in their first days in a new location.
With the knowledge we share in the Academy:
Not all online courses are created equal!
We've collected the best online courses for college credit on the internet. All the classes in the catalog are:
Check our catalog before enrolling for online classes through your home university. You may find something more suited to the Edumadic lifestyle, at a fraction of the cost!
Using the Edumadic approach to studying abroad, you could realistically travel around the world for your whole degree, taking your college classes online while living wherever you please.
If only you could afford it! You may well be living for less than it costs back home, but you will still need at least $1,000 per month to sustain the Edumadic lifestyle long term.
Fortunately, there are many digital skills students can learn to earn money online. Take the time to learn one of these skills and spend a lifetime earning an online income, with a remote job or as a freelancer.
Fund your travels as an Edumad, and then fund your life as a Digital Nomad!

Already studying online? Our programs and philosophy are perfect for you!
For you, it's simple. If all your classes are online, why not travel while you're studying? It makes no difference to your university whether you're studying from Baltimore or Bali.
Studying Abroad is a life changing experience.
But why is it so expensive?!
The average study abroad semester costs $18,000.
If you want to travel while earning college credit (isn't that all that studying abroad is?), then there's a better way:
Taking the Edumadic approach to studying abroad costs a fraction of what it would to study abroad traditionally.
Whether you've just finished high school, just graduated college, or somewhere in between, earning some college credits while living in exotic and enriching locations around the world is always a good idea.
Learn about the world by living in it. Spending a month or more living in a location (as we Edumads always do) allows you the time to truly understand the culture and what it's like to live in that corner of the world.
Learn about yourself. Living on the other side of the world, in an environment that's totally alien to you, with people you've never met, is a sure way to turbo charge your self-awareness and personal growth. For our Edumads, their time with us opens their eyes not only to other parts of the world, but otherparts of themselves that they're yet to explore.
Learn in class! Taking a gap year is often (wrongly) seen as taking time off. We know that a gap year can be the most enriching time in a young person's life. Add college credit to your time away and the benefit of your gap year will be undeniable to even the most skeptical among your friends and family.
What better way to spend your summer break than getting ahead of your graduation timeline AND living abroad?!
Whether you're a high school graduate, an online student, or an on campus student, earn college credit while living with us in one of our locations around the world.
