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.
This program was especially created for international students from non-partner universities and is an excellent opportunity to be part of a prestigious and dynamic Latin American university.
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.
Most courses are taught in Spanish, which is why all international non-degree seeking students are required to prove their intermediate language competence in Spanish.
Students from our partner universities are either exempt from paying tuition fees or receive special discounts.
The academic year in Uruguay starts in March and ends in December. All undergraduate programs are subdivided into two terms, going from March to July and from August to December.
If your university does not have an exchange agreement with Universidad ORT Uruguay, you can apply as a non-degree seeking student, or free mover, for up to one year.
