Overall Experience
Extremely worthwhile. I not only was able to improve my fluency in my second language and form meaningful relationships, but I also learned a lot about self-sufficiency and that I am capable of adjusting to challenging experiences. Elaine R - Clark University - Worcester
It was a fantastic experience. I learned a lot about Chile and South America, I really improved my Spanish skills, and I can't wait to go back. Michael R - Tulane University
I LIVED in Chile for an entire year. I learned how to speak the language and be fully apart of a Chilean family while being apart of the Chilean culture. I furthered my ability to adapt and be flexible as well as forming long-lasting relationships. Diane H - Hope College
Best time of my life, hands down. I have to go back! I'm hoping to find some kind of work there so that I can return someday. Rochelle M - Tulane University
Was a great step outside of American bubble to see real life. Learned about my personal strength to rise to the occasion and speak a foreign language Jonathan M - Tulane University

About

This program is designed for students from all academic disciplines who have at least three years of college-level Spanish or the equivalent in advanced Spanish. It is designed for relatively independent students who seek to matriculate in regular university courses at the Universidad Católica de Valparaíso and who have a keen interest in contemporary Chilean coastal city life and society. This program is most appropriate for students who want to take courses in literature, history, environmental studies, oceanography and psychology, although other majors are also offered.
