Hi everyone,

I need help.

I'm an accounting major in California. I would like to study Spanish as a minor in UBA and at the same time take tango lessons. However, my school does not have Study Abroad Program with Argentina. So I'm all by myself.

Does anyone know if it's true that the tuition in UBA is free to all the students including foreigners? Does UBA have Spanish courses and accounting courses taught in English? Where can I find more info in English about UBA? I'm trying to catch up Spanish by taking Spanish courses but not good enough yet.

Thank you for your help.

Lu

I don't know about "free" but the language classes--Español para Extranjeros--are not free. Classes are AR$710 for 60-hours for your first class and then AR$540 for classes after that. However, there are no classes taught in English at UBA. If you want college credit with classes taught in English, try the University of Belgrano; here is the link: http://www.ub.edu.ar/studiesinargentina/default.htm
It will cost about US$1800 for the 15 credit semester, plus some fees and visa requirements.
¡Buena suerte!
Ken

Prices have gone up for language classes. A Spanish for extranejeros was 832 Ar for 64 hours.

That is why I suggest doing what I did, taking the classes at Instituto Universitario de Lenguas Modernas, which is in fact an extention of UBA. The class I am taking presently is 48 hours and cost 345 pesos. Great teachers and the classes are small, we are 5. Here is the website: iulm.edu.ar
Suerte!
