URUGUAY: Montevideo

Universidad ORT Uruguay

Fall/Spring Semester Program

 


PROGRAM LOCATION

Uruguay is a small country located between Argentina and Brazil on the Atlantic coast.

Montevideo, the capital of Uruguay presents many opportunities for its visitors. The city has the charm of a small city but offers all the attractions of a capital including cultural activities and nightlife. Montevideo is well known for its rich and varied architecture, its fabulous waterfront along the River Plate and large public parks and beaches.

Uruguayans are warm and welcoming and they enjoy political stability, one of the highest levels of education in Latin America, as well as a pleasant, hospitable and safe capital. There is no risk of tropical diseases and no special immunizations are required.

 

ACADEMIC INSTITUTION

ORT Uruguay was founded in 1942 in Montevideo, by members of the Uruguayan Jewish community that wanted to help the waves of immigrants fleeing from Europe, by teaching them a trade in order to allow their insertion in the Uruguayan economy.

ORT Uruguay, the main privately managed University of Uruguay, is a member of World ORT whose history can be traced back to St Petersburg in Russia where it was founded in 1880. Few organizations can praise themselves of such an active, significant and continuous existence for more than 128 years. Much has changed since then, yet the spirit remains. ORT Uruguay still offers quality education and training adapted to the local needs. ORT Uruguay is in the forefront of methodological innovation both for learning and for teaching as well as in its use of new technologies. At the same time ORT Uruguay is specially sensitive to the disadvantaged and impoverished communities offering them education and training adapted to their specific needs.

Additional information can be found at the Universidad ORT Uruguay website.
