Once you receive an admission decision, you will need to obtain health coverage that meets the UTDT requirements (read here for further details). Also, if you will be taking the Argentine Culture and Language Course, or you are coming as a free mover, you will need to make the payment to reserve your seat.
When selecting courses, please take into consideration
Our first semester
runs from March through July, and the second from August through
otherwise, courses are taught in Spanish.
Class attendance is
mandatory. Therefore, in order to avoid overlapping schedules, it is best to
select courses from the same major and year (i.e. Architecture, 4th year).
While there are no
registration restrictions for the courses offered by the International Programs
Department, most upper level courses have prerequisites, which must be met in
order to be able to enroll in them.
We will make
every effort to accommodate your request for courses, but some courses fill
quickly and we do not override full courses. Therefore, please submit several preferences
to ensure that you will be enrolled in a course that meets your needs. There is
no guarantee of placement.
The International Programs Office will pre-register students using the course selection indicated in the Learning Agreement (document sent in the acceptance e-mail). A couple weeks prior to the start of the semester, the Incoming Student Coordinator will contact students to finalize their registration. Course changes may only be done during the Add and Drop Period, first two weeks of class.
The University is located in Núñez. Usually, exchange students live in
shared apartments in Palermo or Belgrano and they reach the University using
the D-subway line or buses. Palermo has many restaurants, stores and a lively
night life. Belgrano has both residential and very commercial areas. See a
neighborhood map here.
As part of the acceptance package students receive a
listing of different housing alternatives. Each student is responsible for
finding a suitable accommodation using this listing or other resources, such as
websites for shared/ renatl accommodation or expat blogs. The Facebook group
for UTDT exchange students is a great resource for getting housing advice from
former exchange students.
