Pursuing a degree?

More and more universities are offering the option to take classes online. Typically people use this option to work alongside their studies, or take on extra classes to graduate faster, but we’ve seen many of our past Edumads take a whole semester of online college classes so they can continue to move their degree forward while travelling with us.

There are two ways you can take online college credits while travelling with us.

Option 1:

Enquire at your current university about the availability of online classes. They may well have their own classes to offer you, in which case you can enrol in a semester of online classes through them.

Option 2:

If your college doesn’t offer online classes, or you aren’t currently enrolled anywhere we’ve got you covered! The Edumadic Course Catalog is full of courses which are all:

  • Regionally accredited, therefore widely transferable between degrees and institutions
  • No more than $400 per credit hour (as low as $100), more affordable than most colleges in the US
  • "Online first", perfect for taking while on our programs

In addition, all our Gen Ed courses are 100% self-paced with no fixed deadlines or required class time. Perfect for combining with world travel!

E-Commerce

E-commerce is the buying and selling of goods and services using the internet, although it's most often understood as the selling of physical products online.

There are a few clearly defined types of E-commerce:

Retail and Wholesale

The standard form of E-commerce is when a seller manufactures their own products and sells them online to either a consumer or another business. They handle everything from design of the product to handling inventory, and finally shipping the product to the consumer. They may sell them on Amazon, or through their own web store that might be hosted on a ecommerce platform like Shopify, specifically designed to build websites to sell products online through.

Dropshipping

Dropshipping is selling products that you as the seller never come into contact with. The customer orders the product online through your store and then the product gets shipped directly from the manufacturer or an intermediary. The most common method of dropshipping is Amazon FBA (fullfillment by Amazon). The intermediary in this case is Amazon. All you have to do is drive the customer to your product and Amazon handles the rest!

Subscription

Subscription E-commerce is when the customer signs up to receive a physical product on a regular basis, typically monthly, until they choose to cancel. Successful examples of this are Blue Apron, Mentorbox, and Birchbox.

Digital Products

E-commerce doesn't have to be physical! Technically digital products fall into the category of E-commerce too. The most obvious form of digital product sold online is an info-product, typically a book or an online course.

Teaching English Online

For a native English speaker, teaching english online is probably the easiest way to earn an online / remote income. the barriers to entry are very low. You usually need a bachelors degree (the subject is unimportant) and a TEFL, and that's it!

TEFL stands for Teaching English as a Foreign Language. It's a standard course that teaches you the fundamentals of teaching. There are many levels that you can qualify at but often employers don't specify which you need so the cheapest shortest course can work! 

There are many companies that hire teachers. For many you'll be teaching Chinese students (both adults and children) through an online video connection. Don't worry, you don't need to know their language! The best employers even provide you with lesson plans, so you don't even have to prepare for each class.

Become a better human

Maybe you've just graduated from high school or university. Or maybe you’ve had your head buried in a career that you’re not passionate about. You feel like they need some time to breathe, take a look around, and make some big decisions about what’s next. Your next step feels like it’s going to set your course for a significant portion of your life and it demands some serious thought, and maybe a change of scenery and perspective.

It's vitally important that you get to grips with who you fundamentally are to understand which step you need to take next. You might not have ever taken the time to get to know yourself, and not only get to know who looks back at you in the mirror, but who do you want that person to be? At this pivotal moment in your life you still have the opportunity to make deliberate steps to a better life, through personal development. This development can come in many forms, and 6 weeks in a new environment, away from the life that has shaped the current version of you, is a great opportunity to explore them.

Mindfulness & Meditation

Mindfulness is a word that nowadays is closely related to meditation, and is in fact a style of meditation but it has its own definition. It is the quality of being present, and fully engaged with what you're doing in the moment. Being mindful means being free from distraction, being aware of your thoughts and feelings but not being a slave to them, and having no judgement against yourself for having them.

It differs from meditation in that it isn't a temporary state that is only experience while meditating. It's a way of living that allows us to be more present in any situation.

In a world full of distractions, mindfulness can be an extremely powerful tool, that can be cultivated through training, in the form of mindful meditation. Time away on an Edumadic program is a great opportunity to cultivate this practice of mindful meditation and see what a life-changing habit this can be.

Resources:

The Waking Up app was created by Sam Harris, the author of five New York Times best sellers, including "Waking Up: A Guide to Spirituality Without Religion".  His writing and public lectures cover a wide range of topics—neuroscience, meditation, moral philosophy, religion, rationality—but generally focus on how a growing understanding of ourselves and the world is changing our sense of how we should live.

This app and it's meditations are slightly different in that their underlying focus is investigating the nature of consciousness, rather than purely teaching meditation.

The Headspace app focuses on teaching the how and why of meditation and its techniques. It starts with an introductory course and moves on to meditations which focus on areas such as anxiety, sports performance, and personal growth.

In addition to the courses and guided meditations themselves, the app has a boat load of further support around understanding meditation and mindfulness and how to implement it into your daily life.

Self-Awareness

Who are you? Have you ever asked yourself that?

Knowing yourself might be the most important piece of information that we ever acquire. Throughout your formal education you will have studied what can sometimes seem an infinite expanse of topics, but you likely have never studied yourself. Considering how powerful this study can be, it seems strange to us that this isn't a core part of the curriculum at any stage of education.

What makes you tick? Are you an extrovert or an introvert? What childhood experiences have an impact on your character and personality to this day? How do other people see me? How do I see myself? These are just some of the questions that we believe we should all be asking ourselves. They're also questions that professionals in the Psychology field have been asking for many decades, and as such there are plenty of tools out there to help you figure these big questions out.

Thinking deeply about the answers to these questions, while in a new environment like that which you will find on an Edumadic program, can be particularly revealing. You're in a new environment around new people that don't know who you are in any capacity. Your fellow Edumads have no pre-conceived notions of who you are so they offer clear mirror upon which to reflect.

Everyone wants to learn about themselves. 16 Personalities has a TypeExplorer personality test that shows you what it means to be you. The TypeExplorer assessment is based on the 16 personality types (the acronym format, such as INFJ) that were developed by Myers-Briggs in the early 1900s.

The results will outline indicators and tendencies of your personality type, however, they are not definitive guidelines or answers. They are meant to inspire personal growth and an improved understanding of yourself and your relationships.

Health

Nutrition

Another subject that is totally neglected in our formal education system. What we put into our bodies is our fuel, our life force. Everything we do and are is a product of the nutrients that we consume. Why then, are we still neglecting our bodies with the Standard American Diet. A simple google of this term makes for bleak reading.

The jury is still out on how exactly we should fuel our bodies. But what we do know is that the Standard American Diet is not the way to go. Vegan, Keto, Plant Based, Paleo. Have you tried them? Maybe our programs are a great opportunity to dip your toe in a different way of eating. Especially in environments that might be better suited to it.

Fitness

Many of our program locations provide the opportunity to explore one or more activities that will get your heart rate pumping. Whether it be yoga in Bali or surfing in Spain, there's always a new sport to try your hand at.

Local education opportunities

Almost all of our locations have opportunities to learn something tangible on the ground while you're there. These can be a great addition to your core learning goals, and get you out from behind your computer screen into reality. A few that people have pursued in the past:

Surfing

You may have noticed a heavy surfing theme in the locations that our programs run in. This might have something to do with our Founder's obsession with the sport.... just maybe. In the locations where surfing is a possibility we're always within walking distance of the closest beginner spot. We always make connections with local schools and instructors to get our Edumads great deals on lessons and board rental.

Available in: Bali, Costa Rica, Canary Islands

Yoga

Yoga isn't far behind surfing in Edumadic's most beloved past times. In many of our locations you'll find a handful of yoga schools that offer classes from beginner to advanced. They often have ancillary classes and educational opportunities as well in topics like breathwork, sound healing, and meditation.

Available in: Bali, Costa Rica

Language

There is the opportunity to learn the local language in all of our locations. Classes are usually very cheap and learning while surrounded by native speakers and with opportunity to practice every day is the most efficient way to progress. You'll be blown away by how far your knowledge can progress in such a short time frame.

Available in: Everywhere! Though Spanish is the most popular language people want to learn which is spoken in Costa Rica and the Canary Islands.

And a whole load more!

Other learning opportunities on our programs include

  • Scuba and Freediving in Koh Phangan, Koh Lanta, and Bali
  • Salsa in Costa Rica and the Canary Islands
  • Rock Climbing in the Canary Islands and Bali
  • Muay Thai in Chiang Mai, Koh Phangan, and Koh Lanta

Create your own curriculum

There are courses in anything and everything on the web from knitting to neuroscience. And there a number of education platform that amalgamate these courses into searchable databases.

We've seen many Edumads pick courses from these platforms, to learn topics they're interested in without the incentive of becoming a digital nomad, or obtaining a degree. Purely learning for the sake of learning. What a wonderful concept!

Education FAQs

Where do we study?

We tend to either study from our own accommodation (which always has appropriate desk / seating space), or other spaces that are well suited to studying such as libraries or co-working spaces. Some Edumads also choose to spend time studying from cafes and restaurants. We always provide a local sim card topped up with plenty of data to each person at no extra cost. This means that we can realistically hotspot our phone to access the internet as an alternative option to wifi.

Are there set hours to study in?

No. We know from our own experience that people are naturally more productive and focused at different times of the day, so we don't impose specific schedules on anyone.

Having said that, people do tend to follow a similar routine as each other. The most common daily routine is studying for a few hours in the morning up until lunch. Then the main chunk of the day is spent socialising, exploring, and generally doing things that travellers do. People then tend to study again in the evenings once the sun goes down.

How do you make sure we're studying?

Once you're on a program you are free to spend as much or as little time as you want on your educational pursuits. We send out a weekly accountability and review form which asks you what your goals are for the week and whether you achieved your goals for the previous week, and we deliberately encourage a routine and way of living that allows time and space to be spent moving your education forward. But, at the end of the day, we treat all Edumads as adults who take ownership of their goals. Program Coordinators are not tasked with disciplining participants who do not have the self control to stay committed to their studies.

How much time can I expect to spend studying on the program?

We suggest that you should expect to study for roughly 4 to 6 hours per day. Some days it might be a couple of hours, other days it might be 10. This leaves plenty of time each day to socialise, exercise, read, write, explore, or whatever else it is that you choose to do!

5 hours per day translates to a total of 210 hours of study time on a 6 week program, which I'm sure you'll agree is plenty of time to achieve something significant! Often, people complete whatever they intended on studying before the end of the program. So it might be a good idea to line up some extra projects or courses that perhaps are less important to you, but you could add to your schedule should you find yourself accomplishing your main goals early.

If you want to know what a typical day looks like on an Edumadic program, you can read the "Day in the Life" features on our blog. They're written by our Edumads and give a great insight into what a typical day looks like in a location.

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.
