It's widely understood that studying abroad is one of the most enriching experiences a student can have, yet only 2% of US students do so each year.
Why? Maybe it's because the average cost of a study abroad semester is $18,000!
Our approach to studying abroad cuts that cost in half.
Our gap year programs include:
And much more, at a fraction of the cost of equivalent programs.
"Broad, wholesome, charitable views cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all of one's lifetime." - Twain

"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
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.

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.
