Buenos Aires is truly a cosmopolitan city with beautiful architecture, quirky shops and cafes, strong sports culture, tango bars, polo, museums, nightlife, and everything in between.

The city also boasts many top universities and you'll have lots of wonderful academic options to choose from through IES Buenos Aires.

For students with no Spanish experience, the "Latin American Societies & Culture" program may be right for you. For more advanced speakers, elect the "Advanced Spanish Immersion" program. Either way, you can't go wrong with Buenos Aires.
