All courses will meet for 4 hours each week. Classes will be held on Mondays/Wednesdays or Tuesday/Thursdays at various times throughout the day. During the intensive language portion of the program, students will meet Monday through Friday for a total of 25 hours per week. Class times vary and your final course schedule will be determined onsite.

This program is designed for students at all language levels who wish to focus their studies on Spanish language acquisition while taking electives in English or Spanish focused on Argentine and Latin American culture. All students will enroll in one Spanish language course. Language courses focus on listening comprehension, conversation, and grammar. Students will then enroll in three to four Latin American Studies electives taught in English and Spanish that will allow you to further explore Latin American culture.These electives help students to discover a better understanding of the history, economics, and culture of Argentina. For beginners, by taking electives in English, you can still immerse yourself in the Argentine culture and earn credits, even with only a little Spanish experience. For students at an intermediate or advanced Spanish level, you are able to challenge abilities and practice your skills while taking courses taught in the host language. The choice is yours!

Since its founding as a private institution in 1964, the University of Belgrano has grown to become one of Argentina's leaders in higher education. The university offers a complete range of courses to a culturally diverse population of more than 14,500 students. More than 900 international students participate in exchange programs through the University of Belgrano annually.

The campus, located in one of the most relaxing and distinguished residential areas of metropolitan Buenos Aires, is just a few minutes from downtown. Its modern facilities are equipped with computer labs and well-maintained libraries. The school also offers a variety of cultural, artistic and athletic activities to complement the academic program.?
