Students with all levels of Spanish may study in Argentina through the Universidad de Belgrano. This program is open to all levels of Spanish ability. In addition to the traditional semester, students may elect to take an optional, month-long Spanish intensive course prior to the semester. Students have found the intensive course to be highly beneficial, as it will prepare you for your classes as well as daily life in Buenos Aires.
This program will transfer back 16 NU credits. During the semester students will enroll in one Spanish language course at their level and choose 3 additional electives taught in either Spanish or English. Students should consult with their academic advisors regarding the transferability of courses to satisfy certain major/minor requirements.
If you are interested in enrolling in a course not in our database, please send this course for evaluation.
Located in the quiet residential area of Belgrano, the university was established in 1964 and now enrolls over 13,500 students, including 2,000 international students. The university is divided into 13 different schools that offer 33 different undergraduate and 20 graduate majors. ASA students at the Universidad de Belgrano have multiple course options to supplement their Spanish studies, from simply taking electives taught in English or Spanish, to combining electives in both languages. ASA encourages all students to participate in the one-month intensive Spanish language program that is offered before the regular semester courses begin. This intensive program accomplishes two very important goals that will help any student maximize his or her time in Buenos Aires. It will not only earn students 6 semester credits, but it will also help prepare you for life in a Spanish-speaking city, making for a smoother transition into Argentine culture and improved Spanish communication skills. There are wireless Internet zones throughout the Universidad de Belgrano, so students may wish to bring their laptops. The library is divided into multiple sections based on subject area and contains both general study areas as well as study rooms where no talking is allowed. Students will find books on almost all subjects related to their courses and may take full advantage of the library's services as an enrolled student at the Univeresidad de Belgrano. ASA offers multiple options for students who wish to study in Buenos Aires. While we encourage all students to participate on programs that begin with an intensive month of Spanish, it is not required. We also allow students to take their electives in English, Spanish or a combination of both. Students who feel they are fluent enough in Spanish to take courses with Argentine students may do so and should contact ASA for more information on program dates and course availability.

Located on the Southern tip of the Rio de la Plata, Buenos Aires is the cultural and economic center of Argentina. In many ways Buenos Aires feels equal parts New York City, Madrid and Paris. With around 3 million people living in the city and over 12 million in the greater metropolitan area, its influence over the country cannot be underestimated. For any student looking to learn Spanish, experience life in a different culture, and live in a cosmopolitan city, Buenos Aires is a fantastic choice.
