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...

If you're scared, just do it!

This is a great way to spend your summer! You will get to visit many countries and cities with some of the best people you will ever meet. You'll be exposed to a diverse group of people that will make your experience one to rememberer. The program is very flexible with amazing professors and staff that guide you every step of the way.
When I came back home after the summer many people asked me how it went. All I could say was "unforgettable". Forum-Nexus is a great way to get out of your comfort zone and have a summer you can look back on forever.

Just Do It, Man

When I found this program online, I didn't think it was real. The program has you travel to 5 countries in Europe (Spain, France, Switzerland, Italy, and Greece) and gives you enough time to travel to even more. It offers classes for all majors and they were very helpful with transferring over my credits to my college as well. The staff was all very friendly and was as accommodating as they could possibly be. It was also very organized, in it that something was planned almost every day, which is exactly how I want a program to be so that no time is wasted at all. Overall, I had something to talk about to my friends for months and I still talk about it up to this day. It was super fun and I recommend it to everyone.

How can this program be improved?
I heard stories of how some people were not able to transfer their credits properly, which sucks because there 9 credits available. If the program could further help them with that, that would definitely be an improvement, but then again, I don't know who was at fault. For me, they helped me a lot and kept constant communication with me before the program even happened.

FN is a life-changing experience.

FN is the best way to improve your network. Here you can find
people with very different points of view, make new friends, new business partners and improve your business knowledge. Also, people from different cultures find out new information about other cultures. The program is a “Deep Dive” into different world cultures. Most of all I was impressed by different
activities during the sessions: group work, project work, where you can share your opinions with the
partners, agree or disagree on some points and come to the common conclusions. That was the most
difficult point in fact. People differ much in their views and stand their ground. But as a result of this
collaboration and communication we found lots of common ideas and were pleased to present them to
the public. The most challenging task of all was the task of making a presentation to the audience where
the group had not only to discuss the ideas and issues but implement them in practice, how it would work
in reality. In general, the program was exciting! I miss all the participants and organizers. If I had a chance to be
engaged in it one more time I would definitely use it and be the part of FN!!!!!!!

Review of Forum Nexus

Amazing study abroad program! It was the greatest thing I did in college and I would recommend it to everyone. Every person can get something beneficial out of this program and won't regret doing it! The variety of events and activities that the staff picks out and the experience gained is like no other study abroad program.

The friendships and connections I have made from this program will stay with me for the rest of my life. I always tell my friends to sign up for the program because I believe they are missing out on something that could truly be a special month for them as it was for me!

Forum Nexus Changed my Life

Quite honestly I have no words for how amazing this program is. Before Forum Nexus I had never been out of the country. Being from Chicago, big cities never bothered me and I consider myself a pretty cultured person, being as there are people from all over that reside in the windy city. Being in a foreign country has nothing on the experiences I have had here in the states. The places we went, the people we met , the food we ate, everything from start to finish was something I could only dream about until finding Forum Nexus. The staff was so welcoming and genuine and I learned so much from them all both inside and outside of the classroom. There is not enough time in the day to tell you haw grateful I am to have gotten to experience a trip so magical, while still learning and growing academically. I am a changed person because of the opportunity Forum Nexus gave me and I would 100% recommend this program to anyone who asks. Shouting THIS IS FORUM NEXUS, all the way from Ohio!!!!!

This trip is a little pricey, but for what we get to do and see, the money is well worth it!!

An Incredible Opportunity for Learning and Experiencing Culture

Participating in Forum-Nexus over the summer was the best decision of my life - I visited so many incredible places and made life-long friends in the short span of five weeks. I would recommend this program to any student who wants to study abroad, but does not wish to be tied down to one specific city. One of the most unique aspects about Forum-Nexus is what they call Professional Visits. These are personal visits to places such as the UN-Geneva, CERN, UniCredit Bank, and many others. The visits are hosted by a professional within the organization, and it is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity to see these places and see how they work. My favorite memory from Forum-Nexus was going to the island of Santorini, which is off the coast of Greece. I had the best day of my life there, and I owe it to Forum-Nexus being accommodating to weekend trips that are planned by students! While in Santorini, we booked a boat that brought us to a black sand beach, allowed us to swim in a semi-active volcano where sulfur was still rising, eat a traditional Greek dinner on the water, and see the sunset with several other boats. This night was topped off with walking up 300 steps to find the bus, but at least some fireworks started going off during the climb!
Honestly, do yourself a favor and sign up for this study abroad program. If you have any questions about it or studying abroad in general, feel free to email me at [email protected]
Also all attached photos were taken by me, on the trip.

How can this program be improved?
The only suggestion I would have would be for a few more science based courses, but the classes I took were phenomenal since the professors have such a vast experience.

BEST SUMMER EVER 10/10!!!

This study abroad experience was incredible. I have been on five study abroad programs and never have I had such kind staff to help me feel comfortable through the whole journey. They put so much trust in the students and are always trying to make sure everyone is enjoying their time and getting the most out of their experience. Everyone there was so open minded and willing to listen and learn. This program will always have a special place in my heart. It was one of the best summers of my life. Thank you Forum Nexus!!

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!!!

Best decision I have ever made!

Forum-Nexus was the best decision I have ever made. This program is so unique in that there is something for everyone. There are courses available for all majors, and there are destinations that will captivate everyone’s tastes. Whether you are a lover of the busy city streets or a quiet small town in the mountains, you will see it all. I gained so much international experience as well as such an appreciation for cultural differences. The classes were interesting, relevant, and put me ahead on my track to graduation. The staff members are so intelligent, fun, and help make you feel safe / comfortable transitioning into an international setting. There is so much time to balance social activities with studies. I was able to explore the night life in each town, go on independent excursions, and bond with other students in the program. I left this trip with an entire new network of best friends (many of which I still keep in daily contact with) and I feel more excited than ever to continue traveling and expanding my cultural intelligence. There are scholarships available so take advantage of them and go abroad with Forum Nexus! You will not regret it.

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!

Best Summer of my Life

When people ask about my study abroad experience with Forum-Nexus I tell them that it was truly the best summer of my life. When looking into studying abroad program I wanted one with a strong community, interesting classes, the ability to travel and one where people made good friends. This program provided those and so much more! The people I met are people I will be friends with forever, the places we go are spectacular and the memories are unforgettable. This trip was the perfect balance of education and fun. The staff are professional and experienced which made being half way across the world very comfortable. Overall, Forum-Nexus provides a study abroad experience like no other. If I could do this program every summer for the rest of my life I would. 10/10 would recommend!

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!!!
