Buenos Aires is one of the great Latin American cities and its wealth of cultural and artistic venues offer international students the chance to experience a rich and unique urban lifestyle. Part of this is due to the fact that the vibrant Argentinian capital combines cosmopolitan features with uniquely local forms of sociability: from asados and fútbol to academic discussions, cozy cafes, charming bookstores, an active nightlife and the buzz of politics all belong to a cultural climate that welcomes visitors. Beyond having an architecture with a strong European imprint, Buenos Aires pertains to a vast Latin American landscape. In the past decades, the city has received significant immigration from neighboring countries, a phenomenon creating deep ties manifest in daily life as well as in festivals, celebrations and cuisine throughout the city. Studying in Buenos Aires assures an engaging immersion in the specificities of Argentina's urban center while also providing an introduction to the broader regional and trans-national Latin American culture of the 21st century.
