Argentina: Rosario, Santa Fe
International students will take advantage of their stay in Argentina to discover its rich culture, made of Latin American and European influence, as well as its geographical diversity. Students will be hosted in warm Argentinean host families, wishing to share their everyday life with a foreign student. We place our students in Rosario and in private schools, where students will have to wear a uniform. Students will go to school with their host siblings.
