Now it’s your turn to be in charge. During Authentication Travel, you make your own plans. You could choose to travel with other Compass students. Or experience the rush of freedom and excitement that comes from setting your own course to a destination you alone have selected. You will have two periods of Authentication Travel on The Compass, each lasting five days. As you discover Europe, your confidence and self-reliance will grow. So will your time management skills, as you’ll need to complete academic assignments in conjunction with the Compass Needle, which is required of all students.
