Exchange Students


The Office of International Programs receives internationalstudents from our partner universities. Approximately one hundred exchange students annually study at San Andrés for a semester or year for an unforgettable academic and cultural experience. These students make an important contribution to the internationalization of our university.


Our program allows you to enroll directly in classes at the Universidad de San Andrés together with local students. All of the courses are taught in Spanish by full-time faculty. Students are allowed to register in any course provided they have sufficient academic background. We recommend undergraduate students enroll in 3 or 4 courses per semester, 2 being the minimum and 4 courses the maximum. The normal load for graduate students is 3 courses per trimester plus 1 or 2 seminars.
