    Buenos Aires




Buenos Aires (pop. 13 million) is well-known for its cultural diversity and dynamic atmosphere, making it one of South America's most elegant and vibrant cities.  The city's history revolves around the Western European immigrants whose descendants have preserved their influences since the 19th century by way of architecture, art, and style.  Buenos Aires has also adopted some more modern architectural styles, which provide a notable contrast to the city's deep-rooted traditions and history.

Students traveling with a valid US passport do not require a visa to travel to this program destination.    It is the responsibility of non-US passport holders to research if a visa is required to enter the program country/countries.  If a visa is required, students should apply immediately-- students are solely responsible for obtaining their own visas.  Failure to obtain a required visa will impact students' ability to enter the country and will thus impact their ability to participate in the program.  Students who withdraw from a program because they were not able to get a visa (or if their visa is denied) are held to the refund policy, no exceptions. Please note that all passports should be valid for at least six months beyond the period of stay.

Students traveling on a non-US passport should check if they require a visa. If so, students should consult the Consulate of Argentina for appropriate application instructions.
