I really enjoyed and everyone I met!

It was amazing!!
Hugo is so much fun and informative.
I always wanted to travel and this made it so much easy for me to do it!
It was my first time and I wasn't alone.
Loved the cities we went to: Barcelona, Amsterdam, Greece, Milan, Lake Garda, Paris.
Hotels were very nice.
Classes were little long but very informative.
I really enjoyed Laura as a professor, at times it was little stressful having to talk about things with no prior knowledge but she was amazing and have to stay in touch. I learned a lot for future professional endeavours.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?

Wonderful Experience That Changed My Life!

I thoroughly enjoyed the program and would definitely participate again. I made a lot of new friends and loved all the cities especially Paris and Riva del Garda.

As for academics, International IQ was fun and engaging and my knowledge definitely improved. The Art History class was interesting and truly helped me to gain a greater appreciation for art and its history in Europe. ICVs are also a great way of experiencing Europe.

It's a wonderful experience that really changes your life and that's why I would recommend it to everyone!

  • Made a lot of friends!
  • Beautiful cities
  • Learned a lot
  • It ended too soon :(

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.

  • Made new friends
  • Explored a lot of countries
  • Learned a lot about the EU

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
