Program Overview

Program Description:

Students are invited to study during fall, spring, and summer at the USIL Extension Campus in Cusco, the site of the historic capital of the Inca Empire. Cusco is located about an hour flight from Lima and has half a million residents.

Students take Spanish classes or coursework in English in a stunning 16th century building with ancient Incan stones lining the walls which is a short walk from the center square. In addition to classrooms and administrative offices, the school offers WI-FI, a computer lab, student lounge, courtyard, and garden. The city is adorned with architectural marvels, cobblestone streets, and serves as gateway to Machu Picchu—one of the New Seven Wonders of the World!

Setting Description:
Students live in shared, furnished apartments at the Inca-styled Casa Don Ignacio, a USIL student residence conveniently located near the central square in Cusco, the Plaza de Armas. Students living at Casa Don Ignacio will enjoy different services and facilities available such as a 24-hour front desk, medical assistance, airport pick-up upon arrival and departure, wireless internet, computer room, library, dining room, TV room, meeting room, laundry service, and a safe deposit box. Taxis are available at a very reasonable expense for students to travel to school. Life in Cusco is cosmopolitan in spite of the fact that it is far away from the capital of Lima. Thousands of tourists are around the city and culture is in the air, making this location ideal for students.
