Great Euro Trip with Credits!

I'm very happy I chose to participate as I got to see so many countries and made friends with a bunch of new people. I had a great time exploring Europe and learning about its culture. Amsterdam was my favourite!
Professor Ed clearly loves what he teaches and and has a deep passion for history. I learned a lot about the EU which also helped me explore the countries better. The Independent Cultural Visits were the best part about classes as it made me do more exploration in my free time.
The program director is very fun, energetic and lively.

Best Time & Experience!

I am so happy I came on this trip as I have gone to so many cool places, made great friends, and had so much fun! I loved every city we went to and I feel like I learned so much in class while still having the time to explore the cities.
I think this was a great program. While the constant moving was a bit hard, we made it fun!
The professors and staff made everything so great. Hugo is so much fun and really cares about the students. Nadine is so nice, chill and so organized, she's amazing! Ed was so kind, fun and knowledgeable!

  • Great staff and professors
  • So many cities and countries in one program
  • Great blend of academics and fun

11/10 Study Abroad Experience!

Forum-Nexus is a very interesting program with amazing professors. The program blends in academics and fun in the most perfect way. I got to visit more than 7 European cities in 1 month so that's unbeatable. And the accommodation was perfectly chosen so we're always at easy access to everything in the cities.
I took one class on cultural intelligence and the professor was very knowledgeable and full of energy. Professional visits were also great!
I met so many great students, learned so much and experienced so much!

  • Great mix of learning and fun
  • Amazing and energetic professors

An enriching experience with form nexus

My Forum-Nexus experience last summer was pretty good. The program director was very friendly, which made me feel welcome and comfortable. I'm happy that I chose to participate in this program, as I met a lot of great people and made lasting connections.

One of the aspects I enjoyed the most was the Independent Cultural Visits. These visits encouraged us to go out and research on our own, which allowed us to learn and grow in a more personal way. I was also pleasantly surprised by the quality of the hotels we stayed in – they were actually very good.

Also, I really enjoyed the International Business class, taught by Prof Laura. She was not only personable but also very passionate about the subject. Her enthusiasm made the class engaging and enjoyable. Overall, my experience with Forum-Nexus was a memorable and enriching one.

Unmatched and Life-Changing Experience with Forum-Nexus

My time with Forum-Nexus was truly an unmatched and life-changing experience! I know I've made lifelong friends throughout the program. Hugo, the program director, is a total homie! He made the program so entertaining, and his excitement was absolutely contagious.

I'm incredibly happy that I chose to participate in Forum-Nexus, as it turned out to be the best and most formative month of my life. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Forum-Nexus to a friend, simply because it was an impeccable experience with a spectacular staff.

Professor Laura was outstanding. I loved her use of real-life examples and her constant encouragement for students to participate. Dr. H clearly loves what he teaches, and his enthusiasm was truly infectious.

My "International IQ" improved so much during my time with the program! My internship was amazing and a formative experience, giving me a real taste of the working world. I'm beyond grateful for this opportunity, and I can't stress enough how top-notch the communication from the leaders was.

  • Make lifelong friends
  • Travel to different countries and cities durin the summer

Awesome Experience in Europe!

This was my first time to Europe and it was definitely above my expectations. Traveling to many cities in one summer was a dream come true and the level of organization and details the program put into it made it awesome. The staff were great; very friendly and supportive. The hotels were in perfect locations with easy access to everything. All students became friends very quickly making everyone feel like home.
It's a dream come true study abroad program that I would definitely do again! Highly recommended!

WHY haven't you applied yet? DO IT..NOW!!!

This trip is definitely one time life experience. It was perfect in every possible way! The staff is so professional in their work, organized, helpful, and fun! You get the chance to travel to 12 different cities, each better than the other. I loved the experience, I got to make friends whom I still talk to and hang out with. Truly, from the bottom of my heart, YOU HAVE TO GO! You won't regret it a tiny bit. Be ready to experience the best trip of your life. Be open to learning about new traditions. Be ready to meet different people. Be ready to tell your family and friends about it!!! I would suggest bringing a friend with you so that you have a greta company that you both will remember the rest of your life, but at the same time, branching out and meeting new people is definitely a plus.

What would you improve about this program?
NOTHING, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. I feel like the only thing, maybe, is plan ahead of a time for free time. Make sure you visit every place you once wished to go to.

I love Forum Nexus!!

Forum-Nexus was everything I could have asked for in a study abroad program and more. Not only did we have to opportunity to visit so many beautiful cities in different countries around Europe but they did a fantastic job making sure we really experienced the culture of each city. We were lucky enough to attend professional visits to huge international companies and were encouraged to visit as many museums and cultural sites as possible. The people I met during the Forum-Nexus program were what really made this experience so special. I entered the program without knowing a single person and left with a huge family. I had no idea it was possible to meet and make best friends in 4 weeks. All of the professors and directors are so helpful and encouraging and put me at ease before and during the trip. This program was the most amazing experience of my life and I cannot recommend it enough to anyone interested.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
The most nerve-racking moment was the first day of the program. Walking into orientation I was terrified that I wouldn't make any friends or that people wouldn't like me. By the end of the first day, I had made friends. We were all on the same page - we all came in the first day alone as strangers and left as best friends.
