Program Description:
School in Latin America Header

Sandwiched between the Pacific Ocean and the Andes Mountains, and stretching 4,300 km from the Peruvian border in the north to Cape Horn and the Strait of Magellan in the south, Chile encompasses every kind of environment from tropical to desert to sub Antarctic.  The long, impossibly thin line of Chile boasts a magnificent Pacific coastline, Andean peaks with over 50 active volcanoes, the inhospitable Atacama Desert, and Chilean Patagonia.  Since the end of military rule and the return of a stable democracy in 1990, Chile has proven an attractive site for university-level study. Chilean history covers all phases and models that students may have studied and wish to learn about first-hand.

Known for its quality courses and non-political atmosphere, international students find themselves in the company of foreigners at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile where students have the opportunity to study at Chile's leading private institution while living in the thriving metropolis of Santiago.
