FORWARD COLLEGE is also about working and living together in FORWARD Workspaces and Students Homes where you will make some of your lifetime friends. Our curriculum and facilities have been selected and designed in COVID times meaning that they are fully compatible with a prolonged pandemic both in terms of teaching and campus life.

An Expedition across 3 European Cities

This expedition is the chance for you to step out of your comfort zone and engage with local communities. You will nurture your curiosity, enrich your understanding and build bridges across differences.

Year 1: Lisbon

You will start in Lisbon. Lisbon is the new capital of cool, with its nice and warm weather, welcoming culture, local surfing scene and wonderful gastronomy. Driven by the high quality and affordable lifestyle, artists and entrepreneurs are skillfully painting a new canvas with the city’s ever-growing potential. Abandoned factories are turning into start ups, art galleries and co-working spaces.

Lisbon’s nightlife is a whole new melody. You can enjoy listening to Fado, Lisbon’s typical musical genre. You will immerse into Lisbon’s diverse lifestyle ; major concerts, film festivals, numerous museums and a wide range of cultural places strongly connected to the city’s historical roots.

Your time in Lisbon will encourage you to integrate several perspectives around culture, creativity and life itself.

Year 2: Paris

You will spend your second year in Paris, Europe’s first economic center. Paris is one of the most attractive cities, and consistently ranked among the world top 10 cities for students.


Year 3: Amsterdam

In Amsterdam, you will stay in an eco-friendly city where people biking is the #1 transport. In the heart of Europe’s most competitive economy, you will discover one of the finest European city boosted by a buyont tech industry.


Living in FORWARD Homes

Higher education is often about leaving your comfort zone to embrace new challenges. But it should also be about care.

At Forward, you will live together in dedicated Homes where you’ll meet new friends, share your passions, your talents, your causes, where you’ll take initiatives. Forward Homes are also a safe space for you to share your doubts and express your feelings.

Through students clubs, Forward Homes are the places for creation, for sports, for music, for political causes, for debating, for cooking, for intimate discussions, for fun.

“Living together in this student house is key to learning to live together in our society.”

Emmanuelle Callewaert, Forward pilot programme alumni

Working in FORWARD Learning Spaces

FORWARD Learning Spaces accommodate classes and conferences but also tutoring sessions and team work where students and faculty members exchange on their courses and projects.


A Diverse Community

As a European institution with no predominantly represented nationality among the students or faculty, the FORWARD COMMUNITY remains 100% diverse.
In a world where inequalities grow stronger, diversity is also about reaching out to all social backgrounds. Overtime, 30% of our programme's vacancies will welcome extraordinary students from underprivileged backgrounds.

Our commitment to diversity is not only based on ethical considerations. FORWARD COLLEGE nurtures a diverse community and a culture of inclusion because prosperity and happiness is ultimately about our ability to connect and build trustful relationships.

“It’s important to have a sense of belonging to a global community and be committed to contributing to it with our uniqueness.”

1st Post-Covid Campus

Our curriculum, facilities and procedures have been designed in COVID times. As a result, FORWARD COLLEGE will be among the best equipped higher education institutions in case of a prolonged pandemic. We believe ensuring effective teaching and a real campus life is paramount, as this will improve morale and ensure much better overall performance for our student population.

  • Our courses and assessments are designed to be easily accessible online.
  • Our relatively small cohort (up to 80) and small group teaching (15) limit exposure to potential contagion and are compatible with effective online teaching.
  • Our facilities will fully allow social distancing with 4 square metres per student.
  • In case of a spike, specific measures may apply for 1 to 2 week(s) before holidays to ensure students come back home safe and sound.
