Universidad de los Andes
About the Program
“UANDES”, founded in 1989, is a young and dynamic private university located at the foot of the majestic Andes mountain range. The main campus was intentionally designed to foster co-existence and interdisciplinary dialogue amongst its students in a very modern fashion. Known particularly for its Health Sciences and Engineering curricula as well as experiential learning opportunities within the community, students may take courses in either English or Spanish, depending upon the subject. With approximately 8,000 students, an active sports and social scene, and only a short train ride away from the capital city of Santiago, UANDES provides an excellent environment comparable to UD, but uniquely Chilean.
Academic offerings (in English): Business and Economics, Communication, Engineering and Applied Sciences
