Decoding the Fascinating World of Cryptocurrencies

The Global Achievers Academy programme provides an in-depth exploration of the cryptocurrency world, furnishing you with the knowledge necessary to navigate this ever-evolving landscape. Combined with other sessions on economics, leadership and politics, world history, geography and arts and sustainability and the environment as well as tech and everyday life skills, understanding the Crypto landscape is key, as in today’s digital age; cryptocurrencies have emerged as undeniable game-changers, redefining the rules of the financial landscape.

What are cryptocurrencies?

To grasp the concept of cryptocurrencies, envision the currency you use in a video game, but this time, with real-world applicability. Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum are akin to digital coins with tangible value.

What is Crypto Trading?

Crypto trading resembles navigating the stock market but in a purely digital context. On various online platforms, traders can buy and sell these digital currencies based on market fluctuations. The ultimate goal? Emulating the well-known stock market strategy: buy low and sell high, or vice versa, to realise a profit over time.

Compelling Success Stories

At the heart of the cryptographic revolution emerge fascinating success stories that captivate the imagination. Among them, Erik Finman, at the tender age of 12, invested $1,000 in Bitcoin, and this bold decision transformed into a fortune, making him a millionaire by the age of 18. This remarkable example demonstrates the incredible potential offered by early investment in cryptocurrencies.

Another inspiring tale is that of Kristoffer Koch, who modestly invested $27 in a university research project. Later, he discovered that this seemingly modest sum had morphed into a substantial fortune, thanks to the positive evolution of cryptocurrencies. These stories underscore not only the transformative nature of crypto-investments but also the possibility for everyone, regardless of their initial means, to participate in this financial revolution.

These examples clearly demonstrate that cryptocurrency is not merely a trend but rather a tangible opportunity to redefine how individuals shape their financial future. These resounding successes inspire exploration of the possibilities offered by the world of cryptocurrencies and encourage making informed decisions to embrace the transformative potential of this rapidly expanding universe.

Learning about these with your peers in a cohort on our multi-destination, well-rounded programme, ensures you are armed with the knowledge and a good foundation to follow a higher education course or enter the workforce where we empower tomorrow’s leaders, today.

Why UCL Stands Out

Founded in 1826, nestled in the heart of London, University College London (UCL) has emerged as a beacon of multidisciplinary education, boasting a vibrant community of over 50,000 students and 16,000 staff from 150+ countries. The ethos at UCL revolves around diversity, freedom, and a fearless spirit that challenges conventions, fostering an environment where individuals are encouraged to question and think differently.

UCL’s Impressive Achievements

In 2024, the University College London (UCL) stands as the epitome of academic excellence, earning the prestigious title of “University of the Year” according to The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide. Recognized as a research powerhouse, UCL secured the 2nd position in the UK for research power in the Research Excellence Framework 2021, showcasing its commitment to pushing the boundaries of knowledge. Globally acclaimed, UCL proudly holds the 9th position in the 2024 QS World University Rankings, underscoring its significant international impact. Moreover, with a remarkable 30 Nobel Prize laureates among its alumni and staff, UCL’s legacy is firmly rooted in groundbreaking contributions to various fields, solidifying its reputation as a beacon of academic achievement and innovation.

Why Global Achievers Academy Chose UCL

University College London stands as the embodiment of a global academic powerhouse, aligning seamlessly with the mission of Global Achievers Academy. With an extensive network of 350,000 alumni across 190 countries, UCL’s influence resonates with our vision of uniting aspirational young minds worldwide. UCL’s commitment to sustainability is woven into the fabric of its state-of-the-art campus on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, showcasing an eco-friendly ethos that mirrors Global Achievers Academy values. Boasting a consistent top 10 global ranking for 12 years, UCL shares a common goal with Global Achievers Academy — empowering young individuals to succeed in a global community, underscored by the remarkable achievements of 30 Nobel laureates among UCL’s alumni. The progressive approach to learning and development embraced by both institutions is exemplified in UCL’s campaign, ‘Disruptive Thinking Since 1862,’ fostering disruptive thinking and nurturing future global leaders. UCL’s history of inclusivity, admitting students regardless of religion since 1828, aligns seamlessly with Global Achievers Academy’s core values, promoting exposure to diverse cultures and societies as a catalyst for shaping a more successful world.


UCL’s reputation for world-class research, global influence, and impact makes it an ideal partner for Global Achievers Academy in creating a home for the thought leaders of today and tomorrow.

Cambridge Day Trip

Cambridge: A Voyage into Academic Legacy with Global Achievers Academy

Cambridge, England, is synonymous with scholarly excellence and a history steeped in academic tradition. For students of the Global Achievers Academy, a full-day cultural visit and tour of Cambridge, complete with a visit to King’s College and the ubiquitous experience of punting on the River Cam, offers an insight to academic heritage.

Cambridge: A Beacon of Academic Distinction

Cambridge University stands as one of the world’s foremost centres of learning. Originally, King’s College was just for boys from Eton and it was not until 1865 that other people could study there. The first female students arrived in 1972. A visit to this picturesque city is an opportunity for students to immerse themselves in an atmosphere that has fostered some of the greatest minds in history like Sir Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, King Charles III, Dame Emma Thompson, Alan Turin, John Cleese and Stephen Fry. Walk the same corridors as these at King’s College and marvel at its awe-inspiring chapel and majestic architecture.

Cultural Exploration in Cambridge

Beyond its academic prowess, Cambridge is a city teeming with cultural treasures including museums, libraries, and historic landmarks and Silicon Fen, the start-up centre for tech in the U.K.

Punting on the River Cam is a tranquil and timeless activity which is a must-do (900,000 people a year go), that allows students to soak in the beauty of Cambridge’s landscape. Punting is a water-based activity where people ride a small square-ended boat that has a flat bottom with the ‘chauffeur’ using a long pole – much like a Venetian Gondola – to push against the riverbed, which propels the boat in whichever direction you want to go. That propulsion is what’s known as “Punting.” Partaking in the activity complements the academic aspect of the visit by providing a moment of reflection and relaxation and gives the young chance to share their experiences with their peers and is a social media win.

Global Citizenship and Cultural Awareness

Due to its importance academically and the presence of Silicon Fen, Cambridge attracts international community of students and scholars and epitomises the concept of global citizenship.


In conclusion, Cambridge, with its venerable academic heritage and cultural treasures, offers students of the Global Achievers Academy the opportunity to dive into the world of knowledge and cultural exploration in a dynamic and immersive manner.
