Every student should have a chance to travel the world, and no student should let college debt inhibit that opportunity. Gap year programs can be expensive, especially when these costs are added to four years of college.
Verto was designed to give students the opportunity to see new countries while graduating in four years at the same cost, if not less, than your typical semester of college. We’ve designed a program where traveling actually saves you money.
How do we do it? First by eliminating anything that does not directly contribute to your educational experience. That means you aren’t charged any dues for sports teams, groundskeeping or that new wing on to the English Department. We also utilize homestays which not only foster a deep intercultural understanding, but also keep our accommodation costs reasonable.
