A vibrant port city filled with stately architecture from its European past, Buenos Aires is a wonderful place for students to immerse themselves in a culture that is rich with heritage, community, and passion for life.
Have your pick of shops, vibrant neighborhoods, theaters, and cafes in “the Paris of South America.” The city earned its nickname thanks to its stately architecture and a steady influx of European immigrants, giving visitors glimpses of Europe and the Middle East alike through architecture and neighborhood life.
Courses are available in English and Spanish.
