Apply To This Program

Students in this program participate in an Intensive Spanish Language month long program prior to the semester.

Students at the high advanced level of the Spanish language (5 or more semesters of college-level Spanish) will take courses with local students at the University of Belgrano. Students will have an academic orientation before making their final course selections at the University of Belgrano.Students who have completed or tested out of a minimum of 4 semesters/6 quarters of college-level Spanish are eligible for this program by enrolling in the semester that includes the intensive month (Semester 3A)

Students have the opportunity to enroll in any course from the regular course listing at the Universidad de Belgrano. These courses will be taken alongside Argentine students and are taught by Argentine faculty. Students are also able to enroll in courses offered in the Latin American Studies program (as listed under the Semester/Year 2 programs) but they must complete one course with local students throughout the semester. The courses from the Latin American Studies program are specifically designed for foreign students and the language of instruction is Spanish English and classes are taken alongside international students.

Students who do not wish to enroll in at least one course with local students must switch to the Latin American Studies program.

*Please be aware that some courses with Argentine students are offered only during specific semesters, and often change due to course schedule conflicts, enrollment, etc. While ISA makes every effort to maintain a current course list on the ISA website, course enrollment cannot be guaranteed until students arrive onsite. If you must take specific courses with locals for graduation, please contact your Site Specialist to check on the likelihood that they will be offered during your specific term abroad.*

The Semester 3A program includes an Intensive Month of Spanish prior to the semester. The semester 3B program does not include an Intensive Month prior to the semester.

Semester + Semester Programs Available: Students may participate in the Spring + Fall OR the Fall + Spring sessions of this program by selecting their two semesters of interest when submitting the initial ISA online application.
