Universidad del Salvador is located in Buenos Aires, a sophisticated and dynamic metropolis with a population of over 13 million. Buenos Aires is famous for its European-influenced architecture, indulgent foodie scene and vibrant nightlife, with glamourous tango at the center of it all. Known for its multiculturalism and hospitality, Buenos Aires has also been named as the best city in the Spanish-speaking world for international students (QS Best Student Cities Ranking).

Located in the heart of Buenos Aires, Universidad del Salvador is one of Argentina’s most prestigious educational institutions. USAL is characterized by the integral and personalized education it provides its students, while maintaining the Jesuit traditions of its founders. The university welcomes over 500 international students each year, and it has a “buddy system” to help ISEP students meet local peers and adjust to life in Buenos Aires!

ISEP students immerse themselves Argentine culture and daily life by taking university classes with local students and living with a Porteño host family in the community. The university has an active student body, and ISEP students can participate in sports teams, cultural activities and student groups. While studying at USAL, students will have countless opportunities to explore the city’s rich cultural and artistic scene, and experience the cafes, fútbol, theatre and tango that make Buenos Aires an ideal study abroad destination and a gateway to the rest of Argentina.
