Program Notes
Program Description

Santiago, Chile is an excellent site for a study abroad program. Santiago is Chile’s capital and its political, cultural and financial center. Home to several major universities, it is a large city, yet it has an almost provincial atmosphere. The city is surrounded by vineyards, and is within a few hours of both the mountains and the Pacific Ocean. The Andes Mountains can be seen from most points in Santiago.

Students will be housed in pairs in private Chilean homes in the Providencia neighborhood of Santiago, within walking distance or a short bus ride to the campus. Bedding and linen will be provided as well as breakfast, lunch and dinner daily.

Classes will take place at La Universidad Mayor, a large, accredited university with campuses in seven different locations. La Universidad Mayor has hosted our program for 10 years. Classroom activities will be complemented by visits to various museums, the city of Valparaiso, and one weekend excursion to the Patagonia region. Students must enroll in six credits, as well as the 0-credit UNIV course. Students must enroll in all courses for credit and a grade; pass/fail and audit registration are not permitted.

The Program Fee includes airport transfers, room and board, all group excursions and related transportation, and international medical insurance.

The Program Fee does not include airfare to or from Chile, nor airport transfers within the U.S. The program officially begins when students arrive in Chile. Students will receive detailed travel instructions after acceptance. For this program, students will be given recommended flight itineraries for traveling together. See the Cost section below for estimated airfare.

ACCESSIBILITY: Participants with disabilities should know that accessibility and accommodation in some program locations may differ from the United States. Transit systems and legacy building construction practices may not meet U.S. accessibility standards, and alternative access to public transportation, buildings, or public sites cannot be guaranteed. But UD students with disabilities are welcome and encouraged to study abroad. Review these questions with the Office of Disability Support Services to determine whether this program can meet your accommodation needs.
