Oaxaca, Mexico is a safe oasis in the south of Mexico. Experience the colonial charms of this highland city surrounded by lush mountains and indigenous villages. Founded in 1526, Oaxaca is one of the most unique colonial cities in Mexico. It is an ideal location for study abroad and exploring the pre-Hispanic past of the area which includes the many ruins surrounding the city. Spanish language and elective classes are taught at the University of Oaxaca (UABJO), which was established in 1827 as one of the first universities in Mexico. University facilities are located in the historic center of Oaxaca and are only a few blocks south of the famous Zócalo, or central plaza. In addition to the academics, we include cultural activities on the weekdays, and excursions to different parts of the country on the weekends. The program also includes volunteer and community service experiences. You will live with one of our carefully selected homestays and our onsite director is available for you 24/7.
Scholarships are available throughout the year. The goal of our annual scholarships is to allow students who would not be able to participate in a Study Abroad and Spanish Immersion program do so. Students must meet the Sol Education Abroad eligibility requirements.
