Location & Culture

Click to Open

 The metropolis of Santiago is South America’s sixth largest city, and home to more than six million. Located near the center of the long and narrow Chile, Santiago sits in a bowl-shaped valley with the towering Andes mountains nearly always in view. Here you will find world-class cuisine, exotic suburban parks, neoclassical architecture, and all the trappings of a modern economic center.

The program details

Founded in 1992, this program is designed to support students with strong Spanish language skills as they further their studies by enrolling directly in courses at three of Chile’s top universities – Universidad de Chile, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, and Universidad Diego Portales. All courses are taught in Spanish.

Academics

Click to Open

Academics

  • CLASS FORMAT

    Classes are taught in Spanish, and CIEE courses are taught at the CIEE Global Institute for CIEE students only. Classes are scheduled Monday-Friday, and attendance is strictly enforced both for classes and required co-curricular excursions. Students should expect an average of two hours of preparation required for each hour in class. Instruction is supported and augmented online by our e-learning platform, Canvas. At the local universities, students take classes with Chilean students and other international students. Professors are primarily Chilean with advanced degrees from universities all over the world, resulting in a variety of teaching styles and perspectives.

  • GRADING

    CIEE courses: The U.S. grading scale of A-F is used. Students' grades are based on attendance, class participation, homework, project work, presentations, and midterm and final examinations. Learning outcomes assessment is continuous through personal reflections, evaluation feedback, self-assessment, and requirements as set out in course syllabi. University courses: Students meet the same expectations as their Chilean peers. Assessment includes a variety of different types of evaluation, such as written and oral assignments, quizzes and a final paper or examination. The Chilean grading scale runs from 1 to 7, which CIEE translates into recommended U.S. letter grade equivalents. Graduating seniors and students with timing concerns: Note that grades for Semester I (North American spring) should arrive on campus by late September, and grades for Semester II (North American fall) arrive by late March.

  • ACADEMIC CULTURE

    Chilean academic culture differs from a traditional U.S. American academic culture; one example of this is that university professors in Chile do not have office hours. However, they can be approached by email, or students can also set an appointment with the professor according to the weekly schedule. CIEE courses are designed to follow U.S. academic culture and standards. The class environment typically features a combination of traditional lecture and discussion with co-curricular excursions and activities. Heavy emphasis is placed on student participation. To avoid falling behind, students should not plan personal travel out of Santiago when classes are in session.

Eligibility

  • OVERALL GPA

    Students need to have a GPA of at least 2.5.

UNIVERSITY COURSES

All course selections are made in consultation with the CIEE Center Director and a designated staff person from each Chilean university. Not all courses are available every semester.

Although a limited offering of English-taught courses is offered, CIEE participants must not enroll in these courses due to our goal of complete language immersion.
