NYU Buenos Aires was THE BEST!

My time in Buenos Aires was nothing short of a great one! The academics were all tailored to the local context which made things not only interesting but extremely relevant! They were also a lot chiller compared to the campus in New York. The community was so tight-knit and it was easy to make friends. Moreover, the staff were so attentive and made sure that healthcare (physical + mental) was up avaiable for all students. Travel and food were all so afforable and easily accessible. Truly no complaints!

Great for Experiencing Different Environments

The field trips at this site are phenomenal and varied. Although Buenos Aires itself is a bit homogenous, the country of Argentina itself is not. Another great thing about Argentina is that you can visit many different types of places cheaply and quickly, especially by bus. The landscape of the country itself is extremely varied, including, snowy mountains, a tropical forest, and an arid desert region. Just plan ahead to visit them all!

An Unforgettable Study Abroad Experience

I had a wonderful experience studying abroad in Argentina! The NYU campus was in a great neighborhood, and the small size, compared to how enormous the New York campus is, made it a more personal and intimate experience. I was able to establish a personal connection with not only my fellow students, but my professors and administrators as well. The courses taught in Spanish were phenomenal and some of the best I've ever taken. Buenos Aires is a beautiful, vibrant city full of life and endlessly fascinating. I highly recommend studying here.

What would you improve about this program?
More interaction with Argentine college students in social settings, considering the campus is far from local universities

NYU Buenos Aires Review

I loved the field trips hosted by my school. I enjoyed learning about the culture of Buenos Aires and Argentina. Travelling was something I found incredibly valuable, and I recommend other students who can afford it to do so as well. Meeting and chatting with locals from different provinces provided a necessary perspective about Argentina, beyond Buenos Aires. However, I did not appreciate the feeling of otherness that I had while walking down the streets.

What would you improve about this program?
I wish the professors were more engaging.

Welcoming and Engaging!

Buenos Aires was the second country I studied in during the 2017 year, and it was one of the most memorable experiences of my academic career. Compared to other programs, which were well organized and provided important coursework, the Buenos Aires site offered such a wonderful and engaging staff and experience on top of its academic value. All the professors and staff were independently involved in various organizations and movements, and students were invited to a number of unique interactions with the public and platforms for change and innovative discourse. Every weekend there were markets, festivals, parades, underground film screenings, tango music concerts, feminist artist collaborative meetings, and more hidden in the streets of the activist communities we were welcomed into. What I really enjoyed most was the weaving of academic life into social life - all my courses, including language and arts courses, related to the political history of Argentina and its role within a greater South American history in the 20th century. A colorful experience, a loving atmosphere, an unforgettable and lively city. Would recommend this program to anyone looking to travel for the first time or the fifty-first time - it is certainly a unique opportunity in the southern cone of the world.

Wonderful, Immersive Experience - If you ensure it

NYU Buenos Aires provides you the resources to reach out into the local community and be immersed within the NYU community, as well. The program is small, which is perfect for fostering intimate relationships with your fellow students and NYU staff. It should be noted, however, that if you do not prepare yourself, you do not put an effort, into seeing what Buenos Aires, Argentina and much of Latin America has to offer, you will encapsulate yourself in an Anglo-Saxan bubble. Reach out, and prepare for the best time of your life!

Great for Spanish Majors

Studying in Argentina was fun and having it be through NYU made all my courses count which was great. It's a small building where you have your classes so you see everyone all the time- it's great little community. The homestays are typically near the school / within walking distance. My family lived a bit farther from everyone else and it took me 30 minutes to walk, but they lived in a great, safe neighborhood.
