The Perfect Bridge Year: How You Can Learn on the Move with UP

Study travel

A bridge year, a gap year, or simply taking a break from your traditional education path can be an incredible opportunity for personal growth, exploration, and self-discovery. However, many Learners (and parents) worry about the potential drawbacks of interrupting their education. Brave Generation Academy (BGA) has revolutionised this concept with their Unique Pathway (UP) programme, offering Learners the chance to travel to various BGA Hubs worldwide while continuing their higher education studies on their own terms. In this blog, we'll explore how UP allows you to take a bridge year without compromising your education.


Discovering the Unique Pathway (UP) Program

Brave Generation Academy's UP program is a game-changer for higher education Learners who wish to travel, explore different cultures, and gain valuable life experiences without giving up or postponing their education. More to the point, BGA learners get to make their education work for them. Here's how it works:


  1. Flexible Learning: With UP, you have the flexibility to complete your coursework from anywhere in the world. BGA's online platform ensures that you can continue your education while on the move, at your own pace. 
  2. Global Hubs: BGA offers a network of Hubs in various countries, making it easy for Learners to travel and immerse themselves in different cultures and environments. The Hubs provide a supportive learning community as well as a base for Learners during their travels.
  3. Personalised Schedule: Learners can tailor their schedules to accommodate their travel plans. This means you can plan your bridge year to align with your desired destinations and experiences. And a year does not necessarily mean a year, with UP you can coordinate your learning alongside spontaneous new travel plans. Change is not a problem. 


Taking a Bridge Year with UP

Not only will a bridge year with UP not disrupt your education, it will enhance it! Here are just a few of the advantages that a gap year with UP has to offer:


  • Choosing Destinations: One of the most exciting aspects of the UP program is the opportunity to explore new places. Research the BGA Hubs in different countries and choose destinations that align with your interests, whether it's learning a new language, experiencing a particular culture, or pursuing a passion.
  • Balancing Education and Exploration: Your bridge year doesn't have to be all about studying. UP lets you strike a balance between your coursework and exploring the world. You can plan your studies to leave ample time for local adventures, cultural immersion, and personal growth.

  • Setting Goals: Before embarking on your bridge year, set clear educational and personal goals. Define what you hope to achieve academically and what life experiences you'd like to gain during your travels.

  • Support and Resources: BGA's UP program provides access to resources and academic support, ensuring that you can stay on track with your studies and receive assistance when needed, no matter where you are in the world.
