Questions & Answers

We are currently launching our 2019 program and we're adding two new programs; one in Asia and one combining Europe & Asia. Each of the 3 programs have several different sessions and each session has a different cost. I believe the least confusing way to answer this question would be to say that our program fees start at $8,582 and depend on the program chosen, the duration, and the number of...

Best Summer Ever!!!!

Forum Nexus was one of the best experiences I have ever made in my life. In one month I traveled to 10+ new cities with amazing people I now consider my family. Not only did I have so much fun but I also learned so much about European culture, values, and history. The professors are extremely smart and worldly. They are always there to answer your questions, along with the staff! The staff wants you to have the best possible time and they succeed!! I wouldn't have traded this summer and this experience for anything else. I would 100 percent recommend Forum Nexus to anyone who wants to travel and experience many different cities, loves to have fun, wants to learn, and have the BEST summer of there life!!!

One of a kind experience!

Forum-Nexus offers so many amazing opportunities for people who want to see the world in a unique way. It works for people who have a picky check-list for a study abroad program: a lengthy amount of time in the summer, traveling throughout Europe, with a great group of students from all over who want to meet new people and see new things. The main cities are excellently chosen because they are all iconic and provide balance throughout your travels. You get to see big busy cities, fun laid-back cities, and even smaller hidden-gem towns. The classes are fun and super informative across every place you visit, and you get to walk outside the hotel and see everything you've always heard of. Then you get professional visits that give you a unique perspective of the cultures and industries, and there are cultural tours to show you the significance of each place throughout history.

Forum-Nexus is also the perfect blend of structure and flexibility, so you can follow the group for activities or go on your own for afternoons and weekends. You get to really cater the experience to what YOU want, and Forum-Nexus is there to ensure you get the most out of it! In my travels with Forum-Nexus, I gained skills for adapting to new environments and relating to people from different cultures. Forum-Nexus is perfect because it's fun but you grow so much as a person, and it opens up your world so much! Forum-Nexus works because it attracts amazing staff members and students. The staff is passionate about raising your international IQ through learning opportunities, but they also care about giving you time to enjoy the cities. I feel so connected to the world from traveling, meeting people, seeing landmarks, learning about the history and culture and technology, and loving every second of it. In just a few words, Forum-Nexus is: dynamic, adventure, quality, family.

This is Forum-Nexus!

I had the time of my life studying abroad for 5 weeks with Forum-Nexus! We toured to so many iconic destinations, historical landmarks and beautiful countries in such a short period of time. There was always something to do and see every day, and there was never a dull moment during the entire trip. The staff and Hugo were full of infectious energy all the time and they were incredibly helpful with everything leading up to and throughout the program. The entire program was very organized and safe, and overall very well put together. Forum-Nexus offers something for everyone interested. The classes were all extremely interesting and relevant, and the professors were very engaged. What you learn in the classroom carries into where you’re touring that day and the professional and cultural visits were all incredible and a unique aspect to Forum-Nexus. I met some of the best people on this trip and I had so much fun every single day. This program is truly one of a kind and it was absolutely amazing. Be prepared to dance and sing every day and have the time of your life with Forum-Nexus! I really couldn’t recommend this program enough!

Forum-Nexus is the absolute best!

Forum-Nexus is the best program out there, hands down. Being able to see so many amazing countries in such a short amount of time was an absolutely wonderful experience! As Hugo the director would say, you get a little "flavor" of each country and that's exactly what I got! I learned about several different cultures, languages, historically important places, people and events, and so much more! Learning from people who have such different perspectives and backgrounds was also extremely interesting and really enriched my experience in Europe. I learned more about myself than I ever thought possible and have such an appreciation for the world we live in all thanks to traveling and learning with Forum-Nexus!

Forum Nexus

This past summer with Forum Nexus has been the best summer of my life. I am so happy I went on this trip and was able to experience all of the things that I did. Forum Nexus allows you to visit five different countries with five different cultures, allowing you to improve your international IQ. They also allow weekend excursions and day trips to other cities and countries allowing you to enhance your international IQ even more. On this trip, you will make livelong friends and have the time of your life. I would recommend this trip to everyone.

This is FORUM NEXUS

My experience with Forum Nexus was unlike anything I have ever done and unlike anything I will ever do! I got first hand experience in learning European history, culture and values! I got pushed to learn my own cultural background and was embraced and loved for being my own self! I got to learn more about myself and more about appreciating people who are different that I am. The travel was incredible as well. We got to travel to Barcelona, Chamonix, Nimes, Paris, Milan, Lugano, Geneva, Rome, Santorini and Rhodes all in five weeks. I receive eight credits that counted towards my degree and hours for my hospitality internship. I felt safe traveling with Forum Nexus and worry free. The staff is caring, loving and fun! It is the best combination of a learning environment while still having the independence to discover parts of Europe that you've always dreamed of experiencing. Forum Nexus is unlike any other study abroad program. 1000x would recommend!!!

Amazing learning and cultural experience

This program was incredible! I got to travel to five different countries see so many things and immerse into all the different cultures. I got to meet new people as I traveled and made new friends. The teachers were so committed to not only teaching but to making sure you really learned and enjoyed the experience! We stayed in beautiful hotels everywhere we went. The group of strangers that I met when I first arrived became close friends and family by the end of the trip. The entire trip was amazing and I wish it could have been longer.

Spend more time in each city because everyone was amazing!

A REAL LIFE-CHANGING EXPERIENCE!

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

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!
