Master Your Spanish!

Come to the heart of MERCOSUR, South America’s famous free trade zone, and experience all that Uruguay has to offer - charming colonial towns, beautiful beaches, hot springs, and cattle towns on the Argentine border. Uruguay’s year-round mild climate, safe cities, good quality of life, and long-standing tradition of democracy make it an excellent site to experience the rich diversity and history of South America.

ISEP’s Universidad Católica del Uruguay is situated in the vibrant capital city of Montevideo, a diverse cultural center that combines a picturesque blend of colonial Spanish, Italian and Art Deco styles and is surrounded by a stretch of white sandy beach. While pursuing highly personalized studies in a wide range of fields, such as business, communications, education, and sociology, you are encouraged to participate in community service projects that bring together theoretical learning and practical experience. If you’re ready for an experience off the beaten path where you can master your Spanish and advance your studies in a beautiful locale, Uruguay is the place for you.
