Verto Education offers the only first year abroad experience that keeps you on-track to graduate with our world-class Academic Provider and 60+ partner colleges.
Verto transforms access to higher education through a coming-of-age first-year experience.
Verto Education was founded to make travel the path of least resistance to a college education. We believe in inclusion, transparency, access, equity and, above all, the power of travel to foster empathy and kindness across cultures.
What Verto Education Offers
An Accessible, Global Academic Year
Verto Education helps participants discover themselves and the world around them by making education abroad a foundational and accessible part of your college plan.
With Verto and our Academic Provider, the University of New Haven, students can begin college with a study abroad experience, while having the option to gain admission to Verto’s 60+ partner college.
Verto participants walk away with much more than incredible memories and transferable credits; they gain the confidence, self-awareness, and global perspective needed to thrive in college and in life.
Admission to a Verto Partner College
Participants can gain admission to our 60+ partner colleges, where the credits earned from our Academic Provider while abroad will count towards graduation. Participants have many options available after their time with Verto, allowing them to stay on track to graduate.
All courses, credits, faculty, and transcripts at Verto locations are delivered by our accredited Academic Provider, the University of New Haven.
A Well-Rounded Cross-Cultural Experience Focused on Personal Growth
The Verto Experience fosters self-discovery through mentorship and our Verto Discovery Programming. Workshops, excursions, and cultural immersion programming help students develop a sense of who they are and what they want from their university career.
