Key Information

All the information you need before and after your arrival in Buenos Aires.

Visas and Procedures

Working remotely from Buenos Aires is a unique experience but it can involve a few tedious procedures! Therefore, it is very important you are well aware of all you need to do before arrival, and once you get here.

Visa procedures are obviously the most important. Take a good look at visa requirements and complete the step by step instructions. Information on visas will be updated in the coming days.

Visas

Visitors from the vast majority of countries do not require a visa for stays that do not exceed 90 days (citizens of Mercosur countries do not need their passport, they only need their identity document). Check your situation at the National Migration Office

Embassies and consulates

It is worth consulting immigration requirements with the Argentine embassy or consulate of your country of origin. You can also consult foreign embassies and consulates in Argentina.

Work & Study

What you need to know about higher education in Argentina

Argentina’s higher education system is large and diverse. It includes 111 universities and 19 further education institutes with over 2 million students. Around 500,000 study at the 42 universities in the metropolitan area of ​​Buenos Aires.

There are both public universities (mostly financed by the State) and private universities in Argentina. In general, they are differentiated by the number of students enrolled, their size, and the cost of the programmes on offer, all of which have valid accreditation from the National Commission for University Evaluation and Accreditation, the official body that guarantees the quality of each programme and university.

Undergraduate, graduate and graduate degrees

When you finish high school or middle school, you can begin your college career. Programmes at pre-undergraduate level last up to two years; undergraduate level courses last at least four years and will lead to a bachelor's degree. With an undergraduate degree you can start a graduate degree. To do this, you can choose between a specialization (which usually lasts one year), a master's degree or "master" (which lasts for one or two years) or a doctorate (up to 6 years).

Short and exchange programmes

Many institutions offer shorter programmes to which you can apply as an international student; these include exchanges by agreements between universities, free mobility programmes or executive and customized programs that take place during the academic calendar or during vacations.

Before applying to any university programme in Argentina, remember that the first semester begins in March and ends in the last days of June or the beginning of July. The second semester starts in August, and ends at the beginning of December.

Be aware that not all university programmes in Argentina have the same academic credit systems as in different parts of the world. Here, instead of adding a limited amount of credits to pass the degree in its entirety, you have to pass a package of individual subjects. It is important that you understand this, because it can present differences in applications for short programmes or exchange programmes. Just in case, check with your university before applying!

Academic Offer

If you come to study or are interested in doing academic research in Buenos Aires, our universities offer more than 8,000 programmes across all areas: Applied Sciences, Basic Sciences, Health Sciences, Human Sciences and Social Sciences. We have no doubt that you’ll be able to find the ideal course for you in Buenos Aires!
