Bienvenid@s – Welcome to Universidad de San Andrés!

The international and interdisciplinary Universidad de San Andrés (UdeSA) was founded in 1989 by the Scottish community in Argentina. Many professors and lecturers have already gained teaching experience abroad and are therefore prepared for a variety of students. What is special about the university is its inspiration in liberal arts, in which several departments are combined. A total of over 6000 students attend UdeSA.

The City – Buenos Aires

The University of San Andrés is located in Victoria, a city in the large metropolitan region of Gran Buenos Aires. Right next door is the city of Buenos Aires with its 2.8 million inhabitants. The diversity of population has created a mixture of Latin American and European culture, which is reflected in the architecture, specific cuisine and cultural life of the city.

To do's in Buenos Aires:

  • A culinary specialty is the Empanada Buenos Aires, which you should definitely try during your semester abroad.
  • La Boca is a colourful district known, among other things, for its tango mile.
  • Those interested in architecture and history can visit the Palace of Congress. The National Congress meets there, the equivalent of the German Bundestag.
  • The skyline of Buenos Aires looks particularly great from Puerto Madero.
