API at Universidad Alberto Hurtado in Santiago

Integrated Studies
The Integrated Studies program at the Universidad Alberto Hurtado (UAH) offers advanced Spanish speaking students the opportunity to take courses alongside their Chilean peers. All students selecting the early-start option (available for fall and academic year students) or the January Intersession option (available for spring and calendar year students) will complete an intensive Spanish language course in combination with coursework in Spanish. The intensive course consists of three weeks of study during the fall session (the second semester in Chile) and four weeks during the U.S. spring semester (the first semester in Chile). A language placement exam and course registration will take place during the on-site orientation, immediately prior to the start of the standard semester.

January Intersession
Students wishing to study Spanish language and culture intensively at the advanced level are ideally suited to the January Intersession Program. The intensive course will consist of 48 contact hours (3 U.S. semester credits) over a four-week period. The course consists of three parts related to the following topics:
Culture and Oral Expression
Grammar and Poetry
Latin American Short Stories
Note: This program is highly recommended for students who wish to study for the spring semester at the Universidad Alberto Hurtado (UAH). Spring students who select this option will have approximately five weeks to travel independently prior to the start of the standard spring semester at UAH.

HIGHLIGHTS
Santiago, both the capital and largest city in Chile, bustles with activity and is home to more than a third of the nation’s inhabitants. Despite its large size, Santiago’s extensive public transport system, including an underground subway, makes it an easy city to navigate. Founded in 1541, the city is nestled in a plain between the Andes Mountains. It is the country’s political, cultural and economic center and boasts all of the corresponding attractions. Students will enjoy its incredible views, where the city’s skyscrapers and surrounding mountains can be admired from afar, as well as its museums, historic sites, shopping centers and restaurants.

Parliamentary Program (Semester and Summer)
This program begins with coursework and other activities, designed to provide participants with an initial grounding in British and Scottish politics, society and culture. Classes are taught by academic staff of the Academy of Government, part of the School of Social and Political Science at University of Edinburgh. The program then continues with several weeks comprised of an internship placement with a Member of Scottish Parliament (MSP).

HIGHLIGHTS
The dramatic and romantic appeal of Edinburgh is endless, set atop its volcanic crags with medieval cobble-stoned streets, a majestic castle and a skyline of turrets, domes and spires. It is easy to see where the inspiration for Harry Potter came from! The elegant Georgian facades of the New Town are a contrast to the winding, twisting alleys and hidden courtyards of the medieval Old Town. Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city, is not just a historic city, it is also forward looking, seat of the Scottish Parliament and boasting a vibrant cultural scene of live music, performing arts, galleries and museums and plenty of buzz. It is a great place for students, who make up 20% of the population and is home to one of the largest arts festivals in the world. Overlooked by the extinct volcano of Arthur’s Seat, sitting in the open parkland of Holyrood Park, Edinburgh is one of the greenest cities in the UK.
