A Genuine Education Experience

This semester in Sevilla has been exceptional. My teachers are not only knowledgeable in their fields, but are genuine and amazing human beings. They have made taking in the sights and history of this city so much easier and have found their own ways to tie it back to what we learn in class. I think the greatest example of this is the way that my current English teacher encourages us to go out into new environments throughout the city during class to fully imerse ourselves in Sevillan culture. An overall amazing learning journey.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Planning is the key to managing life and school. Manage your time with classes to be able to experience and immerse yourself in Sevillan culture.

One of my Best Experiences!!

Verto Education is an institution that truly emphasizes experiential learning, where students aren't limited to the four walls of a classroom. Although offering a variety of amazing, substantial courses, with accredited teachers, Verto is unique because it gave me (and will give you) opportunities to grow as an individual, through meaningful excursions, networks with individuals who continuously support you, and through the experiences you may want to embark on yourself through independent travel! <3

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Make the best out of the excursions! They're meaningful!

Spring Semester Abroad in Costa Rica

Studying Abroad in Costa Rica has been an amazing and life changing experience. At first I was concerned it was a scam, but I applied anyways, and the rest was so easy. Being in Costa Rica now, I feel genuinely supported by the staff and like I’ve made productive and genuine connections with my professors. I’ve been given the opportunity to connect with the culture in an immersed way that has been so eye opening. I feel like this program has helped shape me into a global citizen. I am beyond grateful for what this experience has provided me both academically and personally.

What was your funniest moment?
My interactions with the staff, my cohort, and the locals

Verto Education Spring 2021

Great trip. Snorkeled, Scuba-dived , Skydived, went zip-lining, and visited many other sites. Fijian staff was phenomenal and supported our learning during all activities and times of day. Got a greater understanding of the world as a whole without learning through textbooks and enjoyed learning the whole time. Country was beautiful, water was clear, great reefs. The base house where 5-6 weeks in total is spent has lovely staff, rooms were clean and nice, and it had a pool and many games to play.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
I have an immense fear of highs but through the support of my friends and staff I went skydiving. Out of the 24 students on my trip, 23 went skydiving and I did not want to have regrets looking back on the trip. I went and while nervous, I had a blast!!

A Good Time

My semester in Fiji with Verto Education was the greatest adventure of my life. And I would highly recommend the program for anyone wanting to wait a little before going off to a four year college. What sets Verto in Fiji apart is the people. The staff in Fiji were some of the most incredible people I have ever met, and made me feel at home half way across the world. My classmates went from strangers to family and now I know wherever I go in the U.S. I will have friends near by. Also due yourself a favor and grog some kava.

What was your funniest moment?
Sleeping in a hammock on the beach in Somosomo under the stars.
