Definition of edumad

Build better humans.

"Broad, wholesome, charitable views cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all of one's lifetime." - Twain

"It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education." - Einstein

"A man is a success if he gets up in the morning and goes to bed at night, and in between he does what he wants." - Dylan


Facilitate the combination of online learning and world travel through Edumadic Programs.

We encourage the growth of the Edumadic movement by bringing together Edumads on programs specifically designed to maximise the impact of both global experience and online learning in tandem.


The way we spend the early years of our adulthood is fundamentally broken.

At this crucial time in our lives we should take time to know ourselves, the world, and our place in it.

Education is vital, but doesn't have to be delivered from the confines of a university campus.

Meet our Founder

Zach Clenaghan

In late 2015 Zach set out on his own experiment of combining online education with world travel. 7 months and one broken leg later, Zach realised that this would have been so much easier with a community of fellow online learners around him. The result of this realization is the company you see today.

When Zach isn't building Edumadic, you can usually find him surfing, freediving, or being irritatingly curious about human behaviour.
