It’s a common dilemma when you near the end of high school–do you take a gap year and travel? Or, do you get your degree out of the way as soon as you can?
On one hand you’re young, have plenty of time and are not quite to the point of being weighed down with a mortgage, big bills or huge responsibilities. On the other hand, you can feel like if you don’t get cracking on your degree straight away, you might fall behind everyone else.
So, what if I told you that you could do both? Travel the world and get your degree, all in just two years.
Sounds too good to be true, right?
Ducere Global Business School and the University of Canberra are the legends who have made it possible to get the best of both worlds when it comes to study and travel. They’ve teamed up to deliver an online undergraduate degree program that will let you earn your degree and see the world all at the same time–the Global Game Changers Program.
The Global Game Changers program combines a bachelor degree in Business or Entrepreneurship, with the opportunity to travel to both Asia and the US. The course will teach you enterprise skills required to be a leader in our now globally connected world. You’ll be learning all the theoretical stuff from the best of the best. The Ducere Global Leaders Faculty has over 250 of the world’s most successful individuals (like former Prime Ministers and major CEOs) who have shared their wisdom as part of the coursework.
The travel component provides you with the life experience that comes with international tours and venture-building workshops. You’ll also be immersed in the fastest growing economies on the planet so you can see how everything you learn happens in the real world.
But there’s more good stuff. The program utilises online content which means you’ll still be able to go out with your mates and earn some cash at your day job; basically, you’ll have flexibility and freedom to study when you want. The Global Game Changers degree has Commonwealth Supported Places, HECS-HELP and OS-HELP, so you won’t be paying everything out of pocket. Plus, after two years, you’ll walk away with a degree (a legit, internationally recognised University of Canberra Bachelor’s Degree). Andddddddd there’s no exams.
If you’ve been nodding along while reading this and thinking this is pretty damn good, then you can head over here and for some more info, it’s definitely worth it.
