Changing the university game.

We here at Antipodeans have known about the benefits of travel for years. Its ability to develop resilience, perspective, gratitude and empathy. To change you intrinsically as a person. To us, incorporating travel in your formative years is a vital part of becoming a globally aware citizen.

This belief is a big part of why we’re thrilled to support the Global Game Changers Program, a degree that shares our vision for the future.

Ducere Global Business School, the University of Canberra and Antipodeans have teamed up to offer a truly unique online undergraduate degree program, designed for Australia’s next wave of business innovators, startup creators and social entrepreneurs. The Global Game Changers program combines a Bachelor degree in Applied Entrepreneurship or Applied Entrepreneurship (Social Entrepreneurship) with unprecedented learning and leadership opportunities overseas.

That’s where we come in. The Game Changers degree includes Antipodeans style Expeditions throughout South East Asia and China, as well as entrepreneurial training in California’s Silicon Valley – all completed in under two years.

This isn’t your standard University course, and Antipodeans doesn’t run your usual overseas trip – which is why the opportunity to work together is one we couldn’t pass up.

With over 25 years experience in student-based developing-world travel, Antipodeans empowers young people to take ownership and embrace a world beyond their own borders, through leadership style Expeditions, Schoolies Unearthed trips and University Placements.

Our rewarding, hands-on community projects are a central focus of every overseas program. Part of our expertise is to ensure these projects are sustainable, safe, provide local employment and are created in consultation with local communities. Through our international tours and venture-building workshops with Global Game Changers, students will gain firsthand exposure to the world’s fastest-growing economies, and develop foundational skills in entrepreneurship, leadership, resilience and mindfulness.

With our big bold vision of shaping the future generation, we couldn’t be prouder to support this degree of the future.

Game Changers & Antipodeans Year 1:

Students travel through Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and China on a 5-week, horizon-building expedition. Through rewarding community project work, students will discover leadership, resilience and mindfulness – the keys to social innovation in the 21st century.

Game Changers & Antipodeans Year 2:

From Google and Facebook HQ to the latest game-changing app, California’s Silicon Valley is a global centre for tech innovation. Over 3 weeks, students discover how innovators and investors are succeeding in the digital age, and will pitch their own ventures to a panel of experts and entrepreneurs.

We strive to shape the future and Game Changers is a degree that does just that.
