Trends / Study Abroad

Buenos Aires is one of South America’s most vibrant and exciting cities. It is without a doubt the most popular destination for students looking to study in Argentina. It serves as Argentina’s port city and, as an effect, has a fantastic economy that helps keep the city in great condition for travelers. It’s the center of the country’s cultural, economic, industrial and political life. It’s birthplace to the tango and celebrated author Jorge Luis Borges.


The University of Buenos Aires is an amazing educational facility. International students will receive a great education while attending and make friends easily with the local students. The people of Buenos Aires are diverse and have many different backgrounds. This helps with welcoming students from other countries and making them feel at home.


While in the city, students can also partake in Buenos Aires’ favorite pastime — soccer. The country is wild for soccer and many of the citizens watch the games and attend matches. For those who live in countries more focused on other sports, this can be a fun culture shock to experience. Diving into the soccer world will help any student become immersed into the culture of the city. The spirit of soccer lives within most of the inhabitants.


Unsurprisingly, this is a great city to strengthen a student’s language skills and help them become more proficient. The city will help students step away from formal learning and learn the necessary slang to interact with locals.
