Study Abroad in Santiago, Chile at Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile
University Exchange Programs
Carnegie Mellon seeks opportunities to partner with institutions abroad to exchange students, faculty, and researchers. These programs are based on faculty relationships between the two institutions and have been evaluated for academic compatibility.
This is a reciprocal exchange program as Carnegie Mellon University also receives students from Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile. This allows Carnegie Mellon students to build friendships with students both prior to and during the study abroad experience, providing a true cultural exchange.
Important Billing Information
Carnegie Mellon students participating in these programs continue to pay tuition (billed at the junior/3rd-year level) directly to Carnegie Mellon and receive, in most cases, the same financial aid package. Students are responsible for paying all other fees (such as room and board) directly to Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile, as well as airfare to and from the program.
Students applying for a University Exchange must complete a two-part application process:
Step 1 – complete a Carnegie Mellon University Exchange Application (click "Apply Now" below)
Step 2 – complete the Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile application for exchange
Before students begin a University Exchange application, we recommend they discuss their interests with a member of our study abroad staff.
