Program Overview

Program Description:

Come live 9,000 feet above sea level in this high-altitude haven for all things fun: markets, mountains, and culture in the city; and beaches, jungles, and crater lakes all nearby. On this immersive program, you will study at Ecuador’s top-rated Universidad San Francisco de Quito, and improve your Spanish through both language and elective courses taught in Spanish and English.

Setting Description:
From lively indigenous festivals to lovely outdoor cafés in tranquil parks, Quito is a city of wonderful contrasts. It has a mixed history of ancient empires and colonialism. This history is visible in the ruins that dot the landscape and in the incredible Spanish-style churches and leafy plazas. UNESCO named the entire downtown a World Heritage site. They described Quito as having “the best-preserved, least-altered historic center in Latin America.”
