The Buenos Aires Experience



CAPA-led My Global City activities each term include a tour of Buenos Aires’ famous street murals and a visit to the Immigration Museum. Other activities may include visiting Teatro Colón, the Fiesta de Mataderos, a street fair, tango lessons, sporting events, language classes, and other activities that aim to bring CAPA and Argentine students together.


Live like a Porteño and stay in a homestay with your own room where breakfast and dinner are provided daily. Homestays are located within commuting distance of the CAPA Center. Plus, CAPA offers students Health & Wellness support.


Along with your CAPA cohort, study alongside local and other international students at Austral University, ranked the best private university in Argentina. Classes at the downtown location are taught in English while those students with a high level of Spanish are also able to take classes taught in Spanish at the Pilar campus. Spanish language learning classes are available but not required, and students can opt to enroll in CAPA's Global Internship Workshop with its accompanying part-time placement.


During your internship, you'll acquire useful professional skills for your future career, enhance your classroom experience, connect with locals, and improve your resume. Learn More
