FUTURE-FOCUSED STUDY ABROAD

Chile

Chile is a geographically diverse country with a wide variety of climates, landscapes and cultural opportunities. Along with its warm and welcoming people, Chile is known for its historic and scenic sites such as Easter Island (Rapa Nui), the historic wooden churches on the islands of Chiloe, and the Andes Mountains.
Chilean study abroad programs are offered in cities with universities with top tier academic offerings across many disciplines and solid infrastructure. More good news — Chile has the highest level of internet connectivity in Latin America.

BRING YOUR DEDICATION TO SOCIAL JUSTICE NO SPANISH LANGUAGE SKILLS REQUIRED

Colorful, progressive, and welcoming, Valparaíso is known for charm and stunning settings as much as its edgy art scene and politically active student body. This colorful seaport city is an ideal place to learn alongside other dedicated peers — and put theory into practice in ways that make a difference. 


No Spanish skills? No problem! Take classes in English or Spanish with Chilean students, choosing from offerings at two outstanding schools: Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso and Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María. Ideal for human rights, public policy, and engineering majors. 


Go beyond the classroom and get closer to Valpo’s current challenges with a volunteer or community experience that suits your interests, whether that’s helping Valpo youth, pitching in on a marketing campaign, or delivering environmental education. Pay it forward—and get to know Chile’s warm, friendly people even better! 


If you’re interested in learning more about the culture, you can choose to team up with a language partner for conversational practice and work with academic tutors. Living with a carefully selected host family provides even more opportunity to improve and experience local values and traditions firsthand.
