Student Life in Lisbon

Scroll arrow icon

At Forward College we believe that you will learn as much from your fellow students as from your teachers. This is why each student of our founding cohort has been carefully selected after a thorough interview process. Throughout your 3 years at Forward, we will make sure that your student experience in Lisbon, Paris, and Amsterdam is as enriching and stimulating as possible, allowing you to become the best version of yourself.

Our Campus


Our 2021 founding class will begin its learning expedition in Lisbon which has been elected one of the best places to learn in Europe. Forward Learning Center is located in Rua das Flores, a central and lively area of Lisbon, just 5 min from the famous Praça do Comércio. Our Student Home is located in our Campus in Benfica, a young and vibrant neighborhood surrounded by universities easily reacheable by a metro from the city center. Our Student Home is the place to meet friends from all around the world and build lasting relationships.

Student Associations and Extracurricular Activities


Apart from a challenging academic schedule you will get a chance to be involved in Student Associations and Extracurricular Activities such as sport, cultural activities, community service, language courses and pretty much anything you and your peers are interested in. It will be up to you to team up and make these activities happen. Our team will be there to support your initiatives and connect you to our network of local partner organisations.

Student Support


Do you know that 4 students out of 5 feel anxiety at the University? Going to university is a very big transition, this is why every member of our faculty will be there to guide you and help you. As part of our Personal development programme, you will learn how to understand and manage your emotions, participate in weekly practices sessions to manage your stress and much more. At Forward we care about your wellbeing and mental health.

Induction Weeks


You will start your experience at Forward with a 2 weeks induction programme on September 6th. During these 2 weeks, you'll be invited to do a Competition of short Documentaries about Portugal in team (transport and accomodation taken care of), you will know more about yourself and your working style with a Myers Briggs Test (Ex: how do you work with an extravert when you are yourself an introvert,...)., and you will have many opportunities to build strong relationships with your peers through fun activities.

Our Academic Fellows

With 1 permanent faculty member per 10 students, Forward College is one of the very few institutions where academics actually know and care for their students' success
