This private Argentine university hosts almost 1,000 international students each year. Located in the residential Belgrano neighborhood, the University of 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.  

Program Structure

Enroll in 1 language course and 3-4 Latin American studies courses. Language and elective courses meet for 30-45 contact hours/2-3 credits. If you choose the Early Start option, you’ll enroll in an additional language course that meets for 100 contact hours/6 credits. You may earn a total of up to 15 credits (up to 225 contact hours); if you choose the Early Start option, you may earn a total of up to 21 credits (up to 315 contact hours).

Classes meet for 4 hours per week on Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday. Early Start language classes meet Monday-Friday for 25 hours per week. Active learning components required by your courses may be scheduled for Fridays.

Prior to departure, you will select your preferred courses and take a language placement exam. 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 the language level you place into, 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.
