Global Grad have partnered with STA Travel and online universities to offer one to three year courses including foundation, undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, where students have the chance to study each semester in a different part of the world.
In January, students will head off to spend their studies in three different locations - Thailand, Vietnam and Singapore whilst those who start their programmes in September 2019 will head to Croatia, the Czech Republic, or Portugal.
Global Grad's location development manager, Georgia Wright, who came up with the idea, said: "When I finished school, I knew I wanted to see the world and explore. When my gap year was coming to an end I couldn't bring myself to settling into the university bubble for three years. Instead, I carried on earning my way through travelling, visiting 30 countries over three years and having the time of my life. When I finished travelling and came back to the UK, I had missed out on getting a degree but I had gained so much experience and knowledge about the world. It got us wondering whether there could be a way of combining the best of both - helping people to enjoy the unbeatable life experiences that come from travelling, while also gaining a good qualification from university education. Global Grad means students can travel, see the world, and earn a degree at the same time. Whether you want to use it as a guilt-free gap year or a way of breaking out of the university bubble as a digital nomad, it's a truly innovative experience that can set you up for success while helping you have the experience of a lifetime."
