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!

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.

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.

FN Summer!

Forum-Nexus was a great, cultural experience for me! I had traveled to Europe two years before this program and actually wasn't a big fan! I thought the U.S. was the only place for me, and I didn't want to leave for at least a decade. But when a less-than-busy summer and this opportunity came up, I thought I would give Europe another try. And I am so glad I did!!! Traveling around Europe with students your own age and in the same part of life as you is an experience that most people never get to have. The chance to see so much of Europe in one month with friends that become your family after a few short days is one that I would never pass up. There is so much independence in this program that after class in the mornings, you get to do whatever your heart desires! Figuring out the subway stations, finding authentic places to eat, booking weekend trips with your friends, and stumbling across famous landmarks are all part of the experience. I feel so much more confident in my ability to travel by myself after having so much independence with this program. It's intimidating at first, but just jump in and do it! You never know when you'll get an opportunity like this again.

What would you improve about this program?
More planning would be very beneficial for this program. I felt like people didn't know what was going on a lot of the time, and I would have liked to make a little more efficient use of my time. Everyone was very laid back, and I think we should have had at least one advisor that was able to run a tight ship and keep things moving smoothly.

A Fun-Packed Month!

Forum-Nexus delivered even more than I had ever hoped for in a study abroad! Although I took two classes in addition to the International IQ class, I still had plenty of time to explore all of the amazing cities that we stopped in. And not to mention all of the incredible friends that I met from all around the world! I don't think that I could have spent one month of my summer in a better way if I tried. I have recommended(and will continue to recommend) this program to everyone that I meet that is looking to learn about the world and make life-long friends!

What would you improve about this program?
I would love to see a Fall or Winter option to this program as well!

Amazing summer abroad!

I had an awesome time abroad with Forum-Nexus! I made a lot of new friends and saw some interesting places. When looking for a program, I was mainly concerned with finding one that offered Graduate credit, since I had just started my graduate program and never had the chance to study abroad before. I also wanted a program that wasn't too long since I could not be away from home for too long, but was also long enough to see enough places. I enjoyed the multiple countries, and definitely liked the professional visits that we had through the program.

A Trip to Remember

If you have never stepped a foot outside your home country and want to immerse yourself in new innovative cultures, then this is the program for you. The educational aspects perfectly link up with your travel experiences, as you attend classes in the morning, and are free to explore the cities in the afternoon. You will gain a lifetime's worth of experiences and memories that will carry on for years to come. For those of you who are early networkers, all of the students come from across the globe, meaning you will be able to have and maintain several international connections.
You won't be disappointed if you choose this program!
