VERTO OFFERS THE ONLY GLOBAL, ACADEMIC TRAVEL EXPERIENCE THAT PARTNERS WITH COLLEGES – TRAVEL, EARN COLLEGE CREDIT, AND GRADUATE IN FOUR YEARS.
Verto Education’s Mission:
We help students discover themselves and the world around them by making education abroad a foundational and accessible part of a four-year college education. We believe that through these transformative experiences, students become impactful leaders and global citizens.
Do it correctly
Verto Education’s Values:
Verto Education was founded to make travel the path of least resistance to a college education (and degree). We believe in inclusion, transparency, access, equity and, above all, the power of travel to foster empathy and kindness across cultures.
How it works
What Verto Education Offers:
An Affordable, accredited, global academic semester or year
Verto is designed to give students the opportunity to explore new environments while graduating in four years affordably. Each semester’s programming is intentionally focused on global citizenship and personal development to help students build valuable college and life skills.
Guaranteed admission to a top Verto partner college
When students are accepted to Verto, they’re automatically accepted to at least one of Verto’s partner colleges. Upon application to Verto, students can simultaneously request their application also be sent to our partner colleges and universities. When accepted by the school of choice, students have reserved enrollment for the semester or year after Verto, depending on whether students participate in one semester or a full year.
A well-rounded cross-cultural experience focused on personal growth
Semesters foster self-discovery through journaling, mindfulness training, mentorship, service learning programs, and – for some semesters – a homestay experience. Weekly structured reflection gives students a sense of who they are and want they want from their university career.
Verto was founded by a team of passionate travelers and educators
Our team’s goal is to revolutionize higher education and make international experiences a core part of the college experience. With a collective 50+ years in international education, we understand how important and impactful traveling is to learning more about yourself and the world around you.
