Universidad Católica Argentina


Brief information

According to a study by the Spanish Ministry of Education, the Universidad Católica Argentina, founded in 1958, is one of the best private universities in all of Latin America. It has the status of a “university under papal law”, which means it is under the supervision of the Catholic Church.

According to AbbreviationFinder, the university maintains many international partnerships with education providers, including Mente Argentina. Mente Argentina offers semester programs at the Universidad Católica Argentina and various other Argentine universities. For Mente Argentina, we place people interested in these programs, which are held in Spanish or English.

They are excellent for students who have a limited time in Argentina and want to get credit for their work. Another advantage is that the cost of living here is relatively low and the country and people can provide an exciting insight into a foreign culture.

Trips and excursions are included in all study programs. A Mente Argentina team is also always on site to help with questions or problems.
