Our admissions team interviews all qualified candidates to bring together a group of professionals from different backgrounds, industries, and countries.

    Start by answering a few simple questions about yourself and your work. If you’re a good fit, we’ll invite you to complete an application for a program.

  • 2. INTERVIEW

    After reviewing your application, we will reach out to schedule an online interview and support you if you need help getting your employer’s approval.

  • 3. SECURE A SPOT

    If you’re admitted and accept an offer, simply submit a downpayment to secure your spot. Then, pack your bags and prepare for a life-changing adventure.

STEP TWO

Prepare to take the leap.

Our programs launch throughout the year, and each has a different itinerary. Before you depart, we'll ask you about your work schedule, preferences, and goals to place you in a program that works best for you.

You’ll then join a diverse community of professionals, entrepreneurs, and creators preparing to live and work in different cities around the globe each month. Our onboarding team will provide individualized support as you make the shift to your new lifestyle.

STEP THREE

Experience a world of possibilities.

Remote Year will be nothing like anything you’ve ever done before. You’ll immerse yourself in new cultures,
learn something every day, build lasting relationships, and discover new sides of the world and yourself.

LOCAL TRACKS & EVENTS

Remote Year has teams in each city who plan unique events so you can experience each destination on your itinerary like a local.

TOWN HALLS

Remote Year staff members traveling with groups organize gatherings twice a month to make announcements and allow participants to ask questions and share ideas.

A NEW ROUTINE, EVERY MONTH

Experience a new lifestyle every month as you not only change countries, but also your daily routine when you wake up and head to work.

COWORKING SPACES

Be inspired by your surroundings and work from some of the coolest coworking spaces around the world.

POSITIVE IMPACT

We believe in giving back to the communities in which we live. From volunteering at food banks in Portugal to helping refugees in Serbia, Remote Year partners with local charities and sustainable causes to do so.

Your Remote Year community may start as a group of strangers, but soon, there's nowhere in the world you'd rather be.

See what Remotes are saying about us.

"Sure, I could travel abroad by myself for cheaper than Remote Year, but the value of the friendships I have made in Remote Year and the connections I have made through the Remote Year network at large enrich my experience in the moment, and will continue to do so for years to come.   I wouldn’t have it any other way."

"My Remote Year journey and my loving new family taught me how to take care of myself; how to be my own star player and biggest fan. They taught me to love myself; to trust myself and my talents. They helped build my self-esteem. They fortified the confidence, peace and strength within me and in others. I couldn’t have asked for a better year."

"Remote Year is a wily gang of people from all over the world, but despite our differences, they are among the most open minded and good natured people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing.  It’s certainly a huge part of what makes Remote Year so fun and worth it relative to organizing your own travel around the world, which anyone in theory could do."
