PONTIFICIA UNIVERSIDAD CATOLICA DE CHILE

 

Santiago is the capital of Chile, with over 8 million residents. A lively city surrounded by the Andres mountains and the nearby Pacific ocean, there's always so much to explore. The university has impressive faculty, administration and resources with a strong commitment to excellence. Founded in 1888, PUC consistently ranks among the top 2 universities in Latin America. It serves 20,000 undergraduates as well as 3,500 graduate students.

PUC offers a wide variety of subjects, taught in Spanish alongside Chilean students. It also offers a limited number of courses in English. Engineering students interested in innovation take special courses in English together with PUC Engineering students and a course to learn Spanish. All students may also register in an intensive presemester Spanish language course.
