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 Study Abroad Program Ever.

This program is awesome. I was able to travel to five countries (Spain, France, Switzerland, Italy, and Greece) (this changes based on the year) in just five weeks and it was the best experience. Not only that, but I can genuinely say that I have kept in touch with several people from the program 2 years later. The staff is great and they accommodated our every need. There was also a medical team present as well, so even if something did go wrong (this almost never happened) they had certified professionals to help us out, including a United States registered nurse.

In addition to the great staff, the housing was also superb. We stayed in amazing hotels, which was included in the tuition and they also came with free breakfast. After breakfast, we took our 2-3 classes, and then pretty much the rest of the day was filled with activities. If there was a planned activity that day, such as a professional visit (by the way, we visited awesome places, such as CERN, which was a dream come true) they had everything in check. Staff kept track of us at all times and everything was supervised, but not to the point where it wasn't enjoyable, which was awesome. If there wasn't a planned event, you had the freedom to pretty much do whatever you want, including even visiting other places! For example, when we were in Rhodes, Greece, there was a large planned excursion by the students to go to Santorini. Other places people went to while on the trip were Germany or London when we were in adjacent countries.

Overall, the trip was awesome. In my opinion, it had just the right amount of close supervision and freedom, which is difficult to manage. For example, when we were traveling between countries, they had to be strict because it was part of the tuition. When we had to take a subway in Paris to get to our classroom at the local university, they kept track of us and made sure no one was lost. But when we planned for a separate excursion, they were more than happy to give us the freedom to do so, and yet they still checked up on us. It was a well-planned and great trip that was so great, I plan on doing it again in the future.

How can this program be improved?
Everything was great, no complaints at all. My only hope is that they keep the program relatively the same throughout the years.

Beat month of my life!

Forum Nexus is by far the best program to go abroad with! The staff are excellent sources for learning and friendship. I went into this program having not met any of the people in and and I left having made lifelong friendships. This program allows you to have excellent in class lectures but also gives you plenty of opportunities to explore the cities you are in and gain first hand experiences that will life changing effects on you. This program gave me the courage to embrace new cultures and to not shy away from a new city for fear of getting lost. I was able to see many places and cities that I have dreamed of visiting for many years! And a bonus was that it counted as class credit towards my degree. I thoroughly enjoyed participating in this program and would definitely recommend that other students participate as well!

SO AMAZING DO IT DO IT DOOOO IT

This was one of the best trips of my life ! Me and my lifelong best friend chose to do it together and now we have memories that will last forever. DEFINITELY recommend ! The classes were challenging yet interesting. The class trips we did together were amazing. The freedom to explore we had was the perfect amount while still feeling safe and accounted for. The leaders were so much fun, and very knowledgeable about where we were. I didn’t have any issues with where we stayed housing wise, every place was beyond expectations. All of the people on the trip were great, definitely made some life long friends along the way. All of the different cities we were in were incredible and unique, and we moved around so much we got just a taste for each place. I can’t wait to go back again! 3 million/10 reccomend

More options for classes, maybe eventually ! Plenty of independent study options but maybe more class classes if the program grows. Other than that absolutely perfect💜💜💜

Although it's been said many times, many ways... this was the greatest month of my life

Flying into Amsterdam (if you told me a year ago that I would be starting a sentence like this, I would've called you crazy) I was scared out of my mind: all new countries, all new people, all new lifestyle. However, I rolled with the punches and learned the first of many life-altering lessons I would absorb from Forum Nexus: the unknown is something that should cause excitement, not apprehension.

I had an amazing month of museums, adventures, parties, escapades, culture, and much more. Director Hugo, whose positive attitude could melt even the coldest of hearts, was the heart and soul of the trip, but the other administrators were invaluable in keeping the ship afloat and everything going smoothly. The trip, like everything else in life, is what you make of it, but I firmly believe that anyone and everyone could benefit from it.

In the end, the best thing I gained from the experience was meeting all sorts of wonderful people on our travels. When the trip was over, I still had these connections and hope to make them last a lifetime. Forum Nexus is a one-of-a-kind adventure that will help you find your best self.

The only thing that could possibly improve this already stellar program would be to add some more classes

MUST GO to visit several countries at once

Forum nexus is an inspiring program that taught me so many things I would never even think about. Places can sometimes open up your eyes better than books can. We not only went to each country, we also studied about each place and saw each place in a different light. All I could think of summer 2018 on my memory is FUN! FUN! FUN! Hugo, the founder, and the staff are incredible! They are always positive while handling anything that comes along the way. They do so much background work so the students only saw the best part of the trip. Huge thanks to them! I would have never imagined going to Europe for the first time in another way. Going with Forum Nexus is the way to go because all the worries you may have are all no problem in front of the FN family! You will have the best time of your life and unlock new things every minute You are there in Europe with FN.

Best Summer

I was so blessed with the opportunity to travel abroad to five European countries with Forum-Nexus. It was the best decision I have ever made. Forum-Nexus gave me more than enough. This is the best program that lets you take useful classes, visit awesome companies and organization, and travel. One month sounds too short, but you have a plenty of time to do whatever you want to. I got to meet so many friends from different places and different backgrounds. This one month was incredibly wonderful. I learned a lot, enjoyed a lot, ate a lot, walked a lot, and laughed a lot. The professors are knowledgeable and the staffs are friendly and super helpful. I am so thankful to be a part of member of this awesome program. I will never forget this good memories, and it will be the best time in my entire life. I recommend you to sign up for Forum-Nexus right now!

The most fun month of my life!

I will never forget this trip! I saw things that I'd only seen in textbooks and made lifelong friends from all over the world! I couldn't have asked for more! :) I made so many memories from this trip: biking in Amsterdam, taking in the Dutch countryside, seeing priceless art in Paris, paragliding in Chamonix, Skating around Milan at night, taking a gondola in Venice, exploring tiny seaside terraces in Santorini, exploring medieval ruins in Rhodes and so many more. In addition the structure of the classes is amazing. All of them are very well thought out with certain assignments an activities that coincide with the various cities. For example, you may have a class in the world famous Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam! Also the instructors do a great jo of teaching while also enabling you to be able to go out and see the magnificent cities that you're in! If you go on this trip you will leave the trip with a new outlook on so many aspects of life and with lifelong connections/experiences that you'll take with you everywhere.

More advice on which restaurants, stores, etc. in cities are less expensive.

Once in a lifetime opportunity!

Forum-Nexus provided me with the perfect opportunity to study abroad while also gaining experience within an internship. I gained knowledge within the marketing industry in and outside of class. If you are looking to grow within an internship or if you are even looking to take classes abroad Forum-Nexus is the ideal program. With so many classes to choose from every student can find at least one that will benefit their studies. I also got to travel Europe with my best friend while we were focusing on completely different studies. It was so amazing and we had so much fun traveling together. We made new friends, experienced new places, and ate new foods. Not many college students get to explore all these cities in Europe in just one short month. I can honestly say I would choose Forum-Nexus and all the experiences I got all over again.

How can this program be improved?
There is not much that I can say Forum-Nexus needs to improve on. If I had to choose something I would say that they should help students out more with how they are spending their money. Just maybe talking to them a bit more about managing their finances while traveling.

Life Changing Experience

Attending Forum-Nexus this past summer was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I knew that it was going to be an incredible experience, but it exceeded my expectations in every way. From the food, classes, and constant adventures it was all amazing. The program is unique because it allows you to experience many different countries and cultures in a short period of time. I learned so much while abroad and made life-long friends!

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.

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!!!!!!!

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!!!!!

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.

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!!!
