Program Notes
Please review the CGPS COVID-19 Updates page before applying to a study abroad program.

All applicants must have a valid passport by the program’s application deadline. Your passport’s expiration date must be more than six months after the program ends. If you do not have a current passport, apply through the U.S. State Department. It takes an average of 8-11 weeks (2-3 months) to process a passport.

The University will continue to monitor the ongoing situation with COVID-19 (coronavirus) as we approach the departure date for this program. Please reach out to your program coordinator or faculty director with questions and continue to monitor the UD coronavirus webpage for updates.

If UD decides to cancel a study abroad program, we will communicate directly with affected students. In this case, the University of Delaware will reimburse the cost of program fees and tuition.

Traveling and studying abroad during a global pandemic poses new challenges and requires accepting a higher level of uncertainty than in the past. Students who choose to study abroad at this time must be prepared to adapt to the evolving situation and must take responsibility to act in accordance with the rules, regulations, and recommendations of UD, their program leadership, and legal authorities of their home and host country. Due to the rapidly changing and unpredictable global and local response to COVID-19, these rules, regulations and recommendations are subject to change at any time.
Program Description
Participants on the Buenos Aires program will be able to experience the rich and varied culture of the cosmopolitan Argentine capital--home to the tango and internationally-acclaimed writer Jorge Luis Borges. Buenos Aires is packed with interesting places and diverse neighborhoods to visit, and boasts many beautiful parks and lively "confiterias", or cafes. A weekend excursion is planned to the magnificent Iguazu Falls on Argentina's northern border. Visits closer to "home" will include a cattle ranch (estancia) in the pampas, a tango show, and visits to world-class art museums, among many other local sites in Buenos Aires. Course offerings will focus on language and culture, and students will reside in double or triple rooms in a hotel. Whether you are interested in South American urban life, beautiful natural wonders, or contemporary Latin American literature, art, and culture, the Winter Session in Buenos Aires is your chance to experience Argentina.

The Program Fee includes housing, a local transportation pass, excursions, some meals, and international medical insurance.

The Program Fee does NOT include airfare or transportation to/from airports in the U.S. The program officially begins when students arrive in Buenos Aires. Students will receive detailed travel instructions after acceptance, explaining how and where to purchase their plane ticket. See the Cost section below for estimate airfare. For this program, students will be given recommended flight itineraries for traveling together.
ACCESSIBILITY: Students with disabilities are welcomed and encouraged to study abroad, but should be aware 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. Review these questions with the Office of Disability Support Services to determine whether this program can meet your accommodation needs.
