CET Argentina

Córdoba, Argentina

Argentina has plenty of sites to see and places to visit (and a bus system that makes it easy to get to them all). But if you want to get beyond travel, if you’re looking to immerse, Córdoba is the place for you.

Unlike Buenos Aires, Córdoba is home to only a handful of US-managed programs, and that sets you up for complete integration into local life. Here, you can get involved…the local way. Play sports with local friends. Visit where Che Guevara grew up. Explore nearby valleys and highlands on a daytrip with your local roommate. Attend Cordobesiando, a weekly gathering of Argentinean and foreign students to talk about cultural topics. Discover the city’s Italian heritage. Listen to the latest peaceful political protest. How will you get involved in Córdoba?

Local Roommates

Want to learn where to find the best Argentinian beef, how to navigate the bohemian neighborhood of Güemes, how to bargain at the local markets? Sharing a room with a local roommate gives you instant insider’s access to the city. More importantly, it gives you someone to share the city with.

Host Universities

As home to an outstanding academic infrastructure, Córdoba has earned the nickname “La Docta” (The Scholarly One). With so many reputable universities to choose from, how could we pick just one? CET Argentina partners with two local universities, giving you a wide array of courses and academic experiences to choose from.

Universidad Nacional de Córdoba
UNC is a wholly public institution. By law, Argentinean students are guaranteed admission to this prestigious university and pay no tuition. Because of this, you’ll share UNC’s massive campus (known as “University City”) with a socio-economically diverse student body.

Universidad Católica de Córdoba
UCC is the country’s oldest private university. It attracts middle- to upper- class students, and as a smaller institution, offers classes with fewer students and closer relationships between students and faculty. The campus has state-of-the-art facilities, and plenty of green space.

Housing & Meals

You’ll share a furnished apartment or piso (a large house or mansion that has been converted to student housing) with a local roommate. Housing is in Nueva Córdoba, a lively student neighborhood packed with restaurants, nightlife, and parks. Walk 15 minutes to reach UNC, or hop on a shuttle bus to get to UCC. For meals, take your pick of Córdoba’s many inexpensive eateries.
