Posgraduate courses are taught are taught at our San Andrés downtown facility in Buenos Aires, conveniently located just blocks from the historic Plaza de Mayo
Upon arrival in Buenos Aires, students attend an orientation session which covers topics related to health and safety, transportation, communications and cultural adaptation. They will also take a Spanish evaluation to place them in one of the Spanish Language courses.
The purchase of a local health insurance policy is required. Students may petition to waive this requirement if their international policy meets minimum requirements. After letter of acceptance is emitted, petitions will not be accepted. Estimated cost for a local policy is USD $70 per month / $350 per semester. Once admitted, UdeSA will send contact info for local policy which meets requirements including repatriation benefit and complete coverage at hospitals with international standards.
The San Andrés “Programa de Anfitriones” pairs a local student from Universidad de San Andrés, a buddy (anfitrión in Spanish), with an UdeSA international student for a semester. The opportunity seeks to encourage interaction among students, assist international students as they adapt to Argentine culture and academic system and promote internationalization among UdeSA students.
The program includes activities during the Welcome Weekend and throughout the semester. These vary from helping international students in everyday tasks such as the use of public transport, to participating in planned outings organized by Anfitrión leaders: barbeques, visits to museums or tourist attractions, concerts, picnics, and more.
All international students are encouraged to participate! International students who chose to take part will be assigned their anfitrión just before or during the first weeks of the semester.
Throughout the Semester, students will be able to enjoy a quite diverse range of extracurricular activities under the guidance of our Student Coordinator and with the active participation of our local students.
Students are provided housing options in the safest, most desirable and conveniently located neighborhoods within the city of Buenos Aires. They may elect to live close to campus in the beautiful neighborhoods north of the city along the Rio de la Plata. There are many affordable transportation options to get around and to arrive at campus.
San Andrés staff assist with housing arrangements for students based on student preference for one of the following options:
Many students opt to stay with carefully selected local families in order to immerse themselves in Argentine culture. This option includes breakfast and dinner every day except dinner on Saturdays.
San Andrés provides resources and recommendations for students to find a rented, furnished apartment, usually shared with a roommate.
San Andrés has a limited number of newly constructed dormitories on campus.
