My personal experience working with Verto in Costa Rica

I’ve been with verto for a month now and here is experience so far! Overall I’ve had a great experience, from the professors to our ALC and SLC they are all here to see you succeed. Housing is a little hectic, but staff is trying to work on that right now. Food is good for the first 2 weeks but does get repetitive, but there is a cafe on the campus and food can be delivered as well. Safety wasn’t really talked about for the first week, but as time has gone on it’s has been talked about. We also had an Panama excursion and that was very fun and educational! Only thing I feel the staff need to work on it communication, I feel a lot of the time no one is on the same page. But again you make your own happiness and I promise you it’s amazing here!

Pros
  • Education while abroad
  • Small class
  • Traveling
Cons
  • Housing
  • Lack of communication

Choose Verto

Verto Education was the best decision I’ve ever made! It is such a welcoming, engaging community and I could not have chose a better program to study abroad with. The area of housing is in a very safe area and all of the housing accommodations Verto offers makes living in London even easier. All of the staff is so helpful and caring towards their students and makes sure everyone is getting their needs met, mentally and academically. I’m so grateful I chose Verto because they were the best community and environment to be in and they are so amazing to their students, my student abroad experience was easy, fun, and everything I hoped for and more.

Pros
  • caring staff
  • great location
  • fun excursions
Cons
  • bus travel can be difficult
  • some housing equipment missing but staff was quick to fix it
  • lots to take in at first but staff is so helpful at getting everyone adjusted

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
