Universidad Nacional de Cordoba - Video Tour


The Universidad Nacional de Cordoba (UNC)
Finding a place that offers students a higher education at no cost is rare, and awesome! But it has its pros and cons. So if you haven't watched the video above, do so now to get a glimpse at what the UNC is like, then check out so of my blog posts about my own personal experience.
Here are some pros and cons as well as things you'll need before you apply:


  • Classes are free
  • Books and materials are sold at a low cost
  • Benefits – health insurance, bus pass, reduced lunch cost at the main student lounge (the benefits kick once you begin year one of your career)
  • No advisors to guide you in your career choices
  • Political graffiti throughout the campus
  • Stray dogs (no way to know if they’ve been vaccinated and they carry fleas and ticks)
  • You can only register between November and December. If you miss this deadline, you’ll have to wait a full year to go to school… but you can attend as an oyente, aka an observer, but you won’t earn credit

Here's what you'll need if you're an international student:
  • Apostille and certify your high school and college diploma and transcript in your native country
  • If you’ve gone to a technical school, apostille your certificate of completion and if possible, acquire a transcript from them and have it apostilled as well.
  • Validate your education at the ministry of Education in Buenos Aires (you may be able to get your education validated in Cordoba if you come from a country that is a member of the Mercosur. If you’re from the States like me, the UK, or Australia for example, you’ll have to make an appointment with the Ministry of Education and head to Buenos Aires for your validation)
