Semester/Year Programs – Fall/Spring
DISCOVER THE POSSIBILITIES WHILE YOU WORK AND STUDY ABROAD
Semester/Year Programs (UAC Semester Courses), in which international students attend classes with their Chilean peers, are offered to full-time students.
International participants interested in attending a Semester or Year Abroad at UAC will have the opportunity to study alongside Chilean students and professionals at Universidad de Aconcagua. The university provides an opportunity to promote personal and social opportunities for students and adult learners at local, regional, and national levels. The university offers professional programs in the areas of Health, Engineering, and Social Sciences.
NOTE: International Students, after participating in a Study Abroad Program in Quilpué Campus, can attend courses in UAC Campuses located along the country:
- North Chile: Calama Campus; La Serena Campus;
- Central Chile: Los Andes Campus; Rancagua Campus;
- South Chile: Temuco Campus; Puerto Montt Campus; Ancud Castro.mpus.
Continuity of Studies
In order to study one semester in one of the UAC Campuses located along the country, it is recommended to have an adequate knowledge of the target language (that is, at least three semesters of formal Spanish instruction).
