About the Program

You worked hard to hone those Spanish skills… now put them to use as you take class side-by-side with local students at the University of Belgrano. Designed for students at an advanced Spanish level and above, you’ll take courses alongside Argentine students for a truly integrated language experience. This program allows you to refine and cultivate your language skills while exploring a variety of subject areas, such as business, sciences, history, nutrition, design, political science, and Latin American and Argentine culture, to name just a few. An Early Start option allows you to hone your Spanish proficiency before your program starts.

Program Notes


Spring 2021:
Courses at the University of Belgrano (UB) will be offered exclusively online for the first month of the semester (including early start). At this time, it is not confirmed whether classes will then resume in person on UB’s campus or continue online for the rest of the semester.

This private Argentine university hosts almost 1,000 international students each year. Located in the residential Belgrano neighborhood, the Universidad de Belgrano offers courses taught in your choice of Spanish and English in fields such as business, communications, cultural studies, social sciences, and Spanish language for all abilities. Its modern campus offers cultural and athletic activities to enhance student life and complement academics.

When you study abroad in Buenos Aires, you can choose CEA housing or arrange your own independent housing. CEA housing assignments are based on availability and confirmation date; we make every effort to match your housing requests, but we can’t guarantee housing preferences.  

Please note that housing is not included in Virtual Internship programs.

Program Structure

Enroll in 0-1 language course, 2-4 integrated elective courses, and 0-2 Latin American Studies courses. Language and elective courses meet for 30-90 contact hours/2-5 credits. Most courses are 60 contact hours/3 credits. If you choose the Early Start option, you’ll enroll in an additional language course that meets for 120 contact hours/6 credits. You may earn 12-15 credits (up to 300 contact hours); if you choose the Early Start option, you may earn 18-21 credits (up to 420 contact hours).

The University of Belgrano utilizes a 45-minute contact hour whereas the United States higher education system utilizes a 50-minute contact hour. All University of Belgrano courses represent the 45 contact hour amount and an estimated US credit calculation based on the contact hours. Each University of Belgrano transcript will include the number of hours per week and the weeks in the semester, so US universities may calculate the appropriate number of US credits for students.

Classes meet for 4 hours per week, Monday-Friday. Early Start language classes meet Monday-Friday for 25 hours per week. Active learning components required by your courses may be scheduled for Fridays. Integrated courses run through the end of the program, while Latin American Studies courses end about 1 month before the end of the program.

We’ll assess your Spanish language level before your program begins to ensure that you're in the right program for you. Final course registration takes place on-site. You will be enrolled into courses based on their availability. It is in your best interest to have multiple alternative courses approved by your home university prior to your departure due to course availabilities. To ensure that you receive credit for your coursework, have your home school pre-approve courses at several levels before you leave for Argentina. Please consult with your academic advisor at your home university on credit pre-approval guidelines.
