At Forward College we believe that you will learn as much from your fellow students as from your teachers. This is why each student 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.

Working in FORWARD Learning Spaces


Our 2021 founding class has begun its learning expedition in Lisbon which has been recognised one of the best places to learn in Europe.

The Forward Learning Centre is located in a beautiful historic building on Rua das Flores, a central and lively area of Lisbon, just 5 min from the famous Praça do Comércio. The building is the perfect mix between modern and traditional Portuguese Architecture. It houses 5 private and group study rooms and has a dedicated meditation room where students can recharge.

Living in FORWARD Homes


At Forward, you will live together in dedicated Homes where you’ll meet new friends from all over the world and share your passions.

Located in the young and vibrant area of Benfica, in a neighbourhood with many universities, our Lisbon Home is just 5 min away from the Parque Florestal de Monsanto, one of the most beautiful parks in Lisbon with a variety of activities to offer from tennis to hiking. You will also be a 5 minute walk from the metro station that connects you directly to the city centre and our Learning Center.

Our Student Home offers study rooms, a private garden, and on-site laundry. The rooms are all individual rooms (13-20 m²) with private Bathroom. Prices range between 550€ and 830€ monthly.

Student associations and extracurricular activities


At Forward 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 University? Going to university is a very big transition, this is why every member of our faculty will be there to guide 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 in September 2022. During these 2 weeks, you will have the opportunity to get prepared for your academic year and team work, learn about yourself and your working styles, listen to inspiring speakers, build strong relationships with your peers through fun activities like surfing, yoga on the beach and a cooking contest and participate in a competition of short documentaries about Portugal in teams.
