Daily Life

  • HOUSING

    Homestay: Experience real, day-to-day life in Buenos Aires by living with an Argentine host family. Host options may be traditional and nontraditional, including nuclear families with young children, single professionals, young couples with no children, and older couples whose children visit but do not live at home. We match as much as possible family hosts to student preferences. The typical commute between homestays and CIEE Buenos Aires is 30-40 minutes on average by public transportation. 

  • MEALS

    Local home family stays include two meals per day: breakfast and either lunch or dinner. Host families and students arrange their own meal schedules. Students are responsible for the remaining meal, either preparing them at home or eating in one of many restaurants and cafés throughout the city.

    Academic-year students have a three-month break from December to February between semesters, during which they are responsible for housing and meals.

The program details

Established in 1993, this program is for motivated students with extremely strong language skills and a desire for a complete cultural and academic experience. It includes specialized CIEE courses and direct-enrollment at the Universidad de Buenos Aires (UBA), Universidad Católica Argentina (UCA), and Universidad Nacional de Arte (UNA) – all courses are taught in Spanish.

CIEE Buenos Aires operates within la Facultad Latino Americana de Ciencias Sociales (FLACSO) which sponsors Latin America’s largest and most prestigious postgraduate teaching and research program in the social sciences. FLACSO-Argentina was established in 1974, and its faculty is associated with the most well-respected local universities.

The program also provides students the vibrant, challenging Argentine university life at UBA, UCA, and UNA. The freedom to enroll in more than one university gives students a vast selection of courses.

All students that sign on to the CIEE Community Language Commitment agree to speak Spanish only to foster language proficiency and understand Argentina’s culture and society.

Courses are taught by faculty members from FLACSO, UBA, UCA, and UNA.

Academics

Academics

  • CLASS FORMAT

    Students take CIEE classes with CIEE students only. University classes are open to Argentines and other international students. FLACSO courses are organized and evaluated in a similar way as those at most U.S. institutions. Each university gathers students with different socio-demographic backgrounds, political leanings, class size, and campus look and feel. UBA classes meet for four to six hours a week, with class time divided between lectures, attended by many students, and smaller discussion workshops. UCA students take courses ranging from four to six hours per week. UNA class size varies in each department from small seminars to larger ones.

  • GRADING

    FLACSO students are evaluated on any combination of the following: mid-term and final exams, class participation, oral presentations, quizzes, and a final paper. UBA, UCA, and UNA grades are issued numerically on a scale of 1-10, which CIEE converts to recommended U.S. letter grade equivalents, and most classes have written exams, and sometimes a final oral exam, based on an extensive reading list and formal class lectures.

  • ACADEMIC CULTURE

    The U.S. and Argentine educational systems have significant differences. Argentine students follow specialized paths of study to gain expertise in one field. Courses tend to be more difficult, and students are expected to take greater initiative and responsibility for learning and completing assignments. Students must take exams within the official dates of the program. The academic year program roughly coincides with the U.S. academic year, from July to July; students have a three-month break (December – February) between semesters. The calendar year program runs from mid-February to mid-December; students have a one-week break between the first and second semester in July.
