“The first semester in Santiago is slowly coming to an end. At first, it was a challenge to adjust to the language and culture, but now feel completely at home here. Chile is a fascinating country - very diverse and with breathtaking surroundings. Within an hour, I can travel from Santiago to either the ocean or to the Andes to go skiing and hiking.”

In Latin America, you can participate in exchanges with our partner universities in Mexico, Brazil, Columbia and Chile. You will need to document having the necessary (Spanish or Portuguese) language skills. The academic year begins at a different time in the summer hemisphere (Chile and Brazil). For this reason, please note the different semester dates!
