Verto was a great experience

Verto Education was a really freeing experience. I went to Italy in fall of 2022 and I had so many opportunities. To start, the school itself is wonderful. The staff is nothing short from amazing, and the classes were high quality. I took advantage of my situation and took my weekends to travel. While I was there I got to see the world. I went all around italy, from Florence (obviously), to Venice, Rome, Lake Como, Pisa, Aosta, Sienna, Naples, the list goes on. I even got to travel to Iceland! We had Fridays off which made this super accessible. You get your own advisor who will always have time for any of your concerns, each advisor has about 30 students (we had a class size of around 250) The academic center was an amazing building only about a 15 minute walk, 5 minute bike ride from my apartment. I still fantasize about the food…

Pros
  • Lots of freedom
  • Friendly and supportive staff
  • High quality classes
Cons
  • Getting Visa is stressful
  • Their student portal website is dated

Best experience of my life

Verto education was absolutely amazing. Not only was I able to keep up with my academics, I got an unforgettable experience with it. I absolutely loved all my professors, they really went above and beyond to help me succeed in their classes. With the smaller class sizes you also get to build closer relationships with each of the professors. Socially, it was also amazing. I was able to meet amazing people and even plan trips with them. I loved it so much I decided to do another semester! 10/10 you won’t regret it.

Pros
  • Staying on track academically
  • Verto funded trips and activities
  • Making so many friends
Cons
  • Homesickness

London Verto

My son went through this program so my review is based on what he has told me. Overall, the program was well managed from early introductions to course selections and trip preparations. There were many zoom sessions set up early to walk us through the process and help us prepare. When in London, overall, he had a very good experience. He had one emergency issue that was quickly resolved when I called the support staff on site there. The classes were good and the scheduling of longer class times once per week allowed for him to explore the city and learn to be on his own. I think that he will value this experience for the rest of his life.

Pros
  • Good variety of planned excursions
  • Prepping the student ahead of the trip
  • Location of housing and education center
Cons
  • Flats were not comfortable
  • Late to find out class schedule and roomates

Verto Seville, Spain

This program was awesome for my son. He has been able to meet awesome people that I’m hoping he will continue to keep in touch with for years to come. The experience that he had in Spain will help to continue to shape his bright future. I feel that this program allowed him to learn more about himself and grow in areas that he wouldn’t have if he did not study abroad. Not only has he had the opportunity to immerse himself in another culture but also to be paid as a photographer while he was there.

Pros
  • Being immersed in the culture

A dad's review about Verto Education

Verto has been the answer to my prayers for a rich immersive cultural experience for our daughter. I have had the privilege to study in different countries so I know from first hand experience of the benefits that come with it. I have always wanted to find similar healthy opportunities for my kids to do so.
Verto has offered this in a safe, supportive, well structured and unique way. As a dad I couldn’t think of a better program to recommend.
Thank you Verto for everything you have all done to make their dreams to travel and experience the world a reality!
