A WEEK AT FORWARD

Developing your personality to
boost your success

Whether in Lisbon, Paris, or Amsterdam, your week at Forward will be intense. You can expect to work between 35 and 50 hours depending on your choice of bachelor's (single or double). But contrary to most curricula, your work will comprise highly diversified activities. Each day will be a mix of academic learning, project development, community engagement, and personal development.

Learn differently with 100% small group teaching with individual tutoring to boost your performance. All our degrees are designed by LSE or King’s College London.

Our Project coaches support your team project throughout the year so that you develop highly valuable practical skills and deliver impact.

Personal development will help you work on your personal growth based on your specific needs and aspirations and reflect on your progress across all forms of intelligence.
