Famous for juicy steaks, local wines, and sultry tango, Buenos Aires offers an exciting backdrop for your study abroad adventure. The city’s European roots are still evident in stunning architecture and grand plazas that wouldn’t look out of place in Paris or Madrid, but the vibe is pure Argentine. Edgy art galleries, chic boutiques, and inviting cafés line the bustling streets, side-by-side with tango bars, ice cream shops selling every flavor you’ve never heard of, and parrillas (steakhouses). Studying abroad in Buenos Aires means never being bored: You can hone your Spanish at the University of Belgrano, explore Argentine culture through courses at the CEA Buenos Aires Center, meet local students, and gain hands-on experience through volunteering opportunities and cultural activities.
From the pampas to Patagonia, fútbol to mate, it’s easy to see what has long drawn explorers, artists, authors, and scholars alike to Argentina. The country is home to some of South America’s most stunning landscapes; when you’re studying abroad in Argentina, you can hike the snowy peaks of the Andes, marvel at mighty Iguazú Falls, explore the lonely steppes of Patagonia, and relax in the lovely Lake District or on the beaches of Mar del Plata. The cultural activities are just as diverse; immerse into Argentine life by learning the tango, rooting for the Boca Juniors at fútbol matches, and trying all the flavors at your neighborhood heladería (pineapple with parsley, anyone?) Along the way, you’ll improve your Spanish fluency and gain a deeper understanding of this vibrant culture.
