- Program Description:
Established in 1964, the Universidad de Belgrano (UB) now enrolls approximately 11,500 students, including 2,000 international students. Located in the charming and picturesque neighborhood of Belgrano, the university offers 24 different degrees, both at the undergraduate and the graduate level. It has a long history of welcoming international students and offering dual degrees with U.S. universities. The academic programs at the Universidad de Belgrano are suitable for all students regardless of language level; there are options for students ranging from beginning to advanced levels of Spanish.
The Intensive Language Program is designed for students who want to study Spanish language only, as there are no cultural electives offered within this program. Students complete a total of 100 contact hours per 4-week summer session. Though 45 contact hours generally equate to three semester credits, students are cautioned that U.S. universities may award fewer credits for each Spanish course than the high number of contact hours may suggest.
