Ever wondered which would be a better learning experience: enrolling in an online bootcamp and working 1:1 with an expert mentor to build job-ready skills? Or simply traveling the globe and experiencing new cultures? What if you could do both at the same time?
At Springboard, we design our courses to fit your life. Our approach lets you decide when and where to study. That’s why we’re so excited to announce our new partnership with Remote Year, which will allow you to transition into a new career while traveling the world.
Remote Year will take care of the logistics: travel, accommodations, co-working spaces, experiences in each destination, and related details.
Since 2014, the organization has brought together entrepreneurs, freelancers, and adventurers for unforgettable journeys of personal and professional growth in 16 countries on five continents. They have staff on the ground to provide safety and communication support. They’ve got you covered.
Springboard will provide the learning support: an expert-curated online curriculum, a personal mentor to help guide your learning, student advisors to provide support, career coaches to improve your hireability, and much more.
Together, we’re kicking off the Springboard + Remote Year Live and Learn partnership with two travel paths—Latin America and Asia—and two Springboard programs: the Data Science Career Track and the Digital Marketing Career Track.

The data science program will last four months, averaging 40-50 hours a week to complete. While traveling different regions across the globe, you’ll master the foundations of data science with a specialization of your choice: advanced machine learning, natural language processing, or deep learning.
While in the course, you’ll complete two industry-worthy capstone projects to showcase your skills to potential employers.
The best part? This program comes with our job guarantee.
If you don’t land a data science job within 8 months of completing the program and returning to the US, we will refund your entire tuition. (We’ve yet to issue a refund.)
The study and travel program for digital marketing will also last four months, with students spending 10-15 hours a week on coursework. As you travel throughout your chosen region, you’ll acquire the skills required to become a full-stack marketer.
Just like our traditional Digital Marketing Career Track, you’ll get matched with a nonprofit and have a $10,000 Google AdWords budget to increase their conversions, helping you build a portfolio of real-world, measurable results while making a positive change.
As part of Live and Learn for both programs, you’ll get:
Springboard + Remote Year Live and Learn is a bold partnership bringing together two types of learning experiences.
We think this is a unique opportunity to have a transformative learning experience. Are you in?
