My summer with Forum-Nexus was an incredible experience. Visiting all these beautiful places in Europe really changes your perspective. It makes you discover yourself and definitely explore other cultures. The professors and the staff were really so friendly and helpful. The hotels were amazing. The best part was that I made a lot of friends from different parts of the world. I would recommend this program to anybody interested in life-changing summer experience.

Life Changing Summer

My summer with Forum Nexus has definitely been one of the best decisions I’ve made. Not only was I able to travel through countries I have always dreamt of visiting, but I have also formed amazing friendships, learned more about myself, and through the classes and professional/cultural visits, I was able to fully immerse myself in the cultures of each country. When I came into this program, I did not know anyone and definitely pushed myself outside of my comfort zone. Being a Student Assistant also helped me to feel a little more connected and involved. I am so grateful for all of the opportunities that we had on this trip, and I would recommend it to every one! Whether you’re shy, outgoing, introverted or extroverted—this is a trip that will change your perspective on the world. Our program director, Hugo, is amazing and he makes everyone feel like family from the second you step off of your plane. I am so thankful for the experience that this program has given me.

Trip of a Lifetime

I studied abroad with Forum Nexus this past summer and it was truly the most incredible trip I have ever been on. The detail and time that the leaders put into the program made it unique and unforgettable. I would recommend it to anyone who has the desire to study abroad. I learned so much in the 5 weeks that I was there, and given the chance I would go back and do it again tomorrow. The staff was incredible and the accommodations were excellent. The teachers were great at their jobs and I felt as though Forum Nexus was prepared for every possible situation.

Greatest Program

The director of the program, Hugo, truly goes above and beyond to make this experience fun for everyone. I will never forget this summer or the friends that I made from it. This experience was truly a blessing. I learned so much about international marketing and businesses around the globe. Having international teachers is a great experience. I would recommend this program to all of my friends and family. This program took learning to a whole new level and made it fun.

Life Changing Experience

This was one of the best experiences of my life. I was able to travel around Europe with an amazing group of people and be immersed in the European culture. The professors and staff were so helpful and fun to travel with. My favorite place that we visited was Chamonix, France. I hope to return there in the near future. This program will change the way that you see the world and I would highly recommend Forum-Nexus to anyone who is interested in studying abroad.

Greatest first trip to Europe

Forum Nexus was an incredible experience. Being a student-athlete I couldn't take a semester off but I wanted to study abroad. This month-long summer program was the perfect solution. From the people I met to all the places I went, FN was the perfect balance of it all. It was also really great having everything scheduled for you. I didn't have to worry about not seeing enough because we traveled somewhere new every week. I had an amazing time and would recommend it to anyone!

an unforgettable summer

I was a part of 2015 FN program and I still constantly think about the amazing experience I had! What I really liked about Forum Nexus is that you can customize the experience to your travel preferences. There is a good variety of class offerings and because the program goes through multiple countries, you can visit a lot of different cities (or stay in one place and dig a little deeper, as I did!).

A special shout out to the staff of Forum Nexus--they work tirelessly to make sure each student has a great summer. Feedback is taken seriously and the team is very committed to making continual improvements. I highly recommend this program!!

Forum Nexus is GREAT! They provide so many opportunities in every new place you go from professional visits to guest speakers to weekend/day drips! They schedule in a lot of free time which is great for everyone because you can do whatever you like. TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOUR FREE TIME! Academics are a breeze, no stress with them at all. You can choose to pay attention and engage, and you'll actually learn a lot of cool and relevant things. The people on the programs are really what made the trip. Such a diverse mix of people that as long as you were willing to put yourself out there, you will find a group! I highly encourage going on the trip without knowing anyone. This is definitely a more pricey way to see a lot of europe and get some school credits, but it honestly is worth every penny and you can see from all the experiences/hotels/events where all your money goes. One suggestion.. go on the weekend trips they provide and avoid flying to a different destination just for a weekend. Wastes a lot of time traveling and, trust me, all the places they take you are great. If you really want to see some other place in Europe that the trip doesn't go to, just go extend your trip a few days before or after the program. I spent an extra 4 days in Athens with another girl from the trip (prearranged on Facebook) and it worked great!

Experience of a lifetime

I was an intern for Forum-Nexus Study Abroad, and initially, I wasn't sure what to expect. I have heard of other people's experiences from studying abroad and all of them were positive, but I wasn't sure how I would handle being that far away from home. After spending a month in Europe with this program, I consider everyone involved part of my family. This was a once in a lifetime experience and I have Forum-Nexus to thank for that. This program is one of a kind. Forum-Nexus' uniqueness is what makes it incomparable to other study abroad experiences. I highly recommend anyone who is considering studying abroad to apply to FN. You will not regret it!

An Unforgettable Summer Experience

If you're looking for a summer with unforgettable views, friends, food, and experiences Forum Nexus is just what you're looking for. I've always had a dream to go abroad, but was afraid I couldn't do it because of the commitment to leave for a whole semester. This summer program was the perfect alternative. I got to see most of Europe in a month. It was just enough, but not too long. My favorite part of the program was meeting people from all over the States and from different countries as well. I learned more than I ever could from just sitting in classroom.

Best Summer ever

Forum-Nexus became a family to me. That is the easiest way to put what this program meant to me. I grew so much through this program, it made me come out of my comfort zone and made me more social. I was a Student Assistant for the program, which allowed me to become friends with all the students pretty quickly. I came into this program myself, I was nervous at first but after landing in Barcelona and meeting the staff for the first time made me more relaxed. The staff was so friendly and meeting everyone for the first time made me realize that a lot of people were in the same situation as I am. Everyone had the same intentions as I had and that was to travel and just able to experience new things. Overall, I loved this program traveling with this group was so much fun and I learned a lot from all the cities we have visited. I would love to be able to do it again.

How can this program be improved?

My only problem was with professional visits. They were scheduled the same day as class, so it would take away the freedom to walk around and get to know the cities better. I wish that for the days we had professional visits we didn't have class.

100% Would Do Again

Forum-Nexus was one of the best experiences I could ask for. Not only did I get to travel to wondrous destinations in one month, but I also met forever friends, became more culturally aware, and learned many valuable lessons. I would do it again in a heartbeat!!

I got to see the beauty of Catalonia, Spain; Chamonix, France; Zurich, Switzerland; many cities in Italy, and Rhodes, Greece. So many breathtaking moments- all in one month. I went paragliding in Lucerne, Switzerland- gliding above the beautiful Swiss Alps. I rode on the back of a Vespa all throughout Rome, one of my favorite experiences of all time. Lastly, I swam in the beautiful Grecian water. I lost my sunglasses from wave running, but the beaches and water were clearer than ever- and worth the small loss.

You won't regret an experience like this one!

One of the Best Summers of my life!

Attending the Forum Nexus program this summer was the best decision that I made. You get to travel different European cities along with taking classes at renowned universities. Especially for the students who didn't get the chance to study abroad, Forum-Nexus is the best program for them. I got a chance to explore the European culture and the traditions which people follow in different countries. Apart from that I got a chance to interact with students coming from all over the world sharing different ideas and having different perspectives. The classes which we take are not at all boring and stressful. This is because of the experienced faculties who also travel with us throughout the program. Along with studying throughout the weekend I took many Forum-Nexus organised day trips and weekend excursions to different cities. The staff members are so friendly and are always ready to help. The director of the program, Dr. Hugo, is such a fun loving person that you don't even feel that you are on a educational trip. I highly recommend this program to everyone who didn’t get the chance of studying abroad. At the beginning you'll start as a stranger but later you'll end up as a family, the Forum-Nexus family!

Best Summer Yet!

This past summer I decided to study abroad after my freshman year of college. I was traveling alone and I was a little bit nervous to be in Europe for the first time all by myself. When I first met everyone from Forum Nexus, all my worries instantly went away. I've never met a more welcoming, friendly, and fun group of people. Age or where we came from did not matter. In one month I did as much as possible between interesting classes, professional visits, and sightseeing. I really enjoyed going to classes because we learned so much useful information that will stick with me forever. I couldn't believe how fast everyone became not only friends, but family. I left Greece with so many experiences, a different outlook on life, and 4 college credits. Choosing to be a part of Forum Nexus 2016 was one of my best decisions, and if I could go back and relive it all again I would love to! Best summer yet!

A summer well spent

It was a life changing experience. Forum Nexus was my very first time traveling outside the UK and travelling with them actually really help. I learned a lot, made a lot of friends and get connected to so many people. It was a very cool to learn about culture, business and team work skill while travelling. The staff was very helpful and friendly, they will help you with all your concern. Enjoy your best summer if you sign up I highly recommend the program :D.
