Seated at the base of the Andes Mountains and the edge of the Pacific coast, Santiago is perfectly situated not only for sunbathers and mountain climbers, but also for those seeking higher education. Having created a contemporary trend in arts and lifestyle, in Santiago you will discover the urban deployment of multicultural and global tendencies with a Latin American atmosphere.
Courses are available in English and Spanish.
- Enjoy Parque Bustamante, cafés and restaurants, shops, and much more surrounded by the beauty of Cerro San Cristobal.
- Depending on their program of study and availability, students may be able to participate in an internship or volunteer.
- Do Santiago on your own terms by customizing your experience through the Open Campus program. Take one, two, or three six-week blocks, select your academic track from six options, then choose your courses from a wide range of subject areas.
On one side of Santiago, the towering Andes loom in the distance, while on the other, the dazzling Pacific laps the shore. No matter where you are, you’ll enjoy world-class cuisine, neoclassical architecture, exotic parks, and a bustling urban environment.
Every CIEE semester program has frequent cultural excursions uniquely designed to complement the program’s academics and enhance your cultural immersion.
