ISEP students immerse themselves in Mexican culture and daily life by conducting research with Universidad de Guanajuato faculty and living with a host family in the community. The 8-week Summer Program for Research is a great fit for students who want to gain research experience while improving their Spanish language skills. Excursions and culture activities are also offered. 

Universidad de Guanajuato is a public higher education institution that traces its origins back to 1732. Today, it is a major research institution focused on increasing, preserving and sharing knowledge that contributes not only to their students’ personal development, but also to a democratic, just and free society. The university is ranked among the top 100 universities in Latin America, and among the top 20 universities in Mexico.

Nestled in a valley, the charming city of Guanajuato features narrow, winding streets, colonial-era plazas and beautiful architecture, including the central Basilica Colegiata de Nuestra Señora de Guanajuato. Guanajuato is also home to the famous Festival Cervantino, an annual cultural event that hosts artists from all over the world. Due to its cultural and historic significance, Guanajuato has been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
