Business courses in English
2013 ULima Business courses in English.docx
Proficiency in Spanish is required for participation in this exchange program. For students planning to take business courses in English, at least high intermediate proficiency is recommended (e.g. completion of Spanish 252 at the very least). For students planning to take courses in Spanish high advanced/superior proficiency is recommended (e.g. native speakers or Spanish majors/minors who have taken several 300- or 400-level courses in Spanish).
AccommodationThe University of Lima does not have dorms or residence halls but will provide assistance and guidance in finding adequate accommodations for exchange students who need it. Students are usually housed in rooms offered by Peruvian families where they may also get meals for an added fee. Students can also be housed in student boarding houses with other exchange students.
The University of Lima created a PALS program where university students volunteer to help incoming exchange students adapt to the university community to introduce students to Lima’s social life, and to answer any questions that you may have throughout the semester.
Student Life and Surroundings
Peru, a magical and age-old country, is full of cultural richness and diversity rarely found in other countries; it offers visitors infinite variety and the possibility of experiencing history, culture, nature, adventure and much more in a single country stop. Peru is also one of the only twelve countries labeled as "megadiverse', which is reason enough to plunge into the deep secrets of its natural sites hidden in the extensive Amazonian region, the glorious Andean mountains, the hot, dry valleys of the coast, and one of the richest seas in the world.
The University offers students the opportunity to develop their artistic skills through free workshops, partake in sports such as futbol, rugby, volleyball etc., as well as visit the many cultural sites around Lima. Exchange students also take advantage of their free time in visiting surrounding cities and cultural monuments such as Inca Trail and Machu Picchu.
Exchange programs are affordable study abroad options that allow students to pay UW-W tuition while studying abroad. As with all approved study abroad programs, UW-W financial aid can be used on this program. Eligible students are encouraged to apply for the Wisconsin Grant for Study Abroad, and UW-W and external study abroad scholarships are available.
Cost of Attendance, Financial Aid, and Scholarships
UW-W tuition, as well as the Global Experiences Application Fee and CISI international insurance, are billed to the student’s UW-W account. Other expenses are paid individually (e.g. living expenses) or to the host university (e.g. accommodation).
