En un mundo globalizado, se valora cada vez más el dominio de varias lenguas y, particularmente, del inglés. Ante esa exigencia, la universidad ofrece algunas asignaturas en ese idioma.
To facilitate the integration of international students, Universidad ORT Uruguay offers some courses which are taught entirely in English. Other university courses are offered as dual-language courses, meaning that lectures are given in Spanish with course materials and assessments available in English.
As an international exchange student you are allowed to select and combine course units from a wide range of programs.

As a non-degree seeking international student you are allowed to combine subjects from different schools, programs and semesters, as long as their schedules are compatible.
