Why study in Santiago?
The city of Santiago is settled between the Andes and the Pacific which makes it the perfect base for trekking, climbing, skiing, sunbathing, or wine tasting. Chile’s sprawling capital city is cultured, unpredictable, and very ambitious.
Santiago is an incredibly modern city. It is the capital of Chile and has undergone steady economic growth over the years. In many neighborhoods around the city, high rise buildings line the streets (especially in Las Condes), there are dozens of shopping centers, and beautiful cafés can be found on almost any street corner. However, Santiago still has some extraordinary culture and old architecture. Many historical buildings (from the Spanish colonial period) have been destroyed from the country’s frequent earthquakes, but some great places to visit to soak up some culture. The city is a wonderful place for strolling, and each neighborhood has its unique flavor and tone. Head out for the day to take in the museums, grand architecture and pedestrian malls of the Centro, before an afternoon picnic in one of the gorgeous hillside parks that punctuate the city’s landscape. Nightlife takes flight in the sidewalk eateries, cafes and beer halls of Barrios Brasil, Lastarria and Bellavista, while as you head east to well-heeled neighborhoods like Providencia and Las Condes, you’ll find tony restaurants and world-class hotels.
