Academic Program

TOTAL CREDIT HOURS

Semester

12-16 semester credit hours

Additional courses may be taken for an extra fee

Students who are interested in studying abroad in Buenos Aires with Argentine students will start the semester with an intensive Spanish language and culture course (4 credits). This course was designed to help visiting international students to review grammatical concepts, perfect their writing and gain a more in-depth view of Argentine life and culture. During the standard semester, students will complete their classes with local Argentine students. If preferred, students may instead select from a limited number of courses that are designed for visiting international students. All courses are generally equivalent to 4 U.S. semester credits, and students typically select 2-3 courses to complete during the semester.

ACADEMIC YEAR STUDENTS

The Argentine academic calendar follows the calendar year; the first semester in Argentina is actually the equivalent of the spring semester in the U.S. Students who wish to study for two semesters in Argentina are encouraged to consider the Calendar Year option (spring/fall) rather than the traditional Academic Year option (fall/spring). Students selecting a Calendar Year program have access to API housing throughout their program and are not required to travel or return home during the semester break. In contrast, students selecting an Academic Year option will have approximately a 2-month break between semesters during which API housing is not provided.

TRANSCRIPTS

API students receive a transcript from the Universidad Torcuato di Tella upon completion of their program.
