You can choose to study in Argentina for as little as four weeks or as long as one year. Gap year students are welcome to apply but must be no older than 18.5 years upon departure. Our short placements are flexible and run between March and November. Academic year and semester students will attend a full-week orientation in Rosario, which includes full lodging, 25 hours of Spanish lessons, six hours of orientation workshops, and a cultural activity every day. There are also seven optional trips throughout the year to Patagonia, Ushuaia, the Iguazu Falls, Buenos Aires, Bariloche, Mendoza, and Salta.
You will be placed in either Buenos Aires Province (excluding the capital), Santa Fe, Mendoza, Tucuman or Cordoba. These provinces enjoy mild weather, although Tucuman can get very hot in the summer. Students will most likely be placed in lowly-populated suburbs or rural areas, although they may be placed in cities. All of our host families are carefully vetted for safety and suitability. We conduct home interviews, inspections, and police checks to ensure our students are placed in a secure and supportive living environment.
