Argentina

You are here

Study abroad in Argentina and experience the best of Latin American and European flair.

Spreading nearly 3,000 miles down the backbone of South America, Argentina is a vast country with many ecosystems—lush subtropical jungle, vast grasslands, and stony, sub-Antarctic Patagonia—that draw Eco tourists from all over the world. Not to mention that as an ideal location for study abroad, Argentina offers world-class cities, a multitude of cultures, and immersive learning opportunities.

On our Argentina study abroad programs, you’ll spend your days practicing Spanish, studying topics in a local and global context, and taking learning outside of the classroom with our excursions. And when classes are over, take the time to enjoy some of the Argentine national passions: polo, tango, soccer matches, and more.

Top places to see in Buenos Aires
  • Cabildo

    Constructed in the 17th century, the Cabildo is the former Town Hall of Buenos Aires. In the 1800s, Argentines gathered at the Cabildo and declared their independence from Spain. This spurred the May Revolution and the removal of Viceroy Cisneros, the Spanish head of government.

  • Avenida 9 del Julio

    Avenue 9 del Julio, the busiest street in Buenos Aires, is named after the Argentine independence day, July 9th. Along the street are numerous landmarks, businesses, retail stores, and restaurants, including the famous Obelisk.

  • Tango Performances

    A trip to Buenos Aires would not be complete without attending a tango performance. In the late 1800s, tango was a dance for the people in the poorest barrios, or neighborhoods. Today, tango is a phenomenon throughout Argentina and the world.

  • Recoleta Cemetery

    This famous cemetery is located in the charming Recoleta neighbourhood of Buenos Aires, Argentina.

  • La Bombonera

    Inaugurated in 1940 as "Coliseo de la Boca," La Bombonera was nicknamed as such due to its chocolate-box shape.  The stadium is owned by Boca Juniors, one of Argentina's most famous football clubs and holds over 60,000 people. But futbol is not the only spectator occasion held in the stadium.

  • La Casa Rosada/Casa de Gobierno

    La Casa Rosada is the official seat of the executive branch of the government of Argentina, located at the most important plaza, called Plaza de Mayo.

    The Colón Theatre is one of the most famous opera houses in the world and it is located on 9 de Julio Avenue, in the heart of the city. With perfect acoustics and modern stage areas, this interior design featured a rich scarlet and gold decor.

  • Puerto Madero

    Puerto Madero is a trendy new neighborhood along the Río de la Plata riverbank featuring outstanding modern architecture. It is a recycle area with restaurants, hotels, office buildings, cinemas, theaters, and shops, and a marina. Currently more buildings are under construction in the east side.

  • Bosque de Palermo (Parque Tres de Febrero)

    Bosque de Palermo is a green zone of 25 hectares located in Palermo. It is known for its groves, lakes, and rose gardens (El Rosedal). Many people use the park every day, both on foot and bicycle, and this number increases greatly at the weekends.

  • San Telmo

    San Telmo is one of the oldest neighborhoods of the city and also one of the best preserved areas of that constantly changing Argentine metropolis, with a number of colonial houses and streets still paved with the original cobblestones (adoquines).

Foreign & Local in BsAs

by Idil

One of the goals I had for my study abroad experience was to immerse myself in the culture. That isn’t as easy as it sounds. I was taking most of my classes at the IES Abroad Center, with other IES Abroad students, and our group was actually a really cool group. So, it isn’t easy to branch out and make friends outside the program without feeling a little FOMO. But I pushed myself to meet locals and people outside my program, and I am so happy I did!
