Also, the University of Buenos Aires (UBA) is internationally recognized for its excellent academic level. In the last edition of the World Ranking of Universities, prepared by the same consultant, it reached the 73rd position worldwide, being first in Latin America.
Admission to the University of Buenos Aires and the course is unrestricted, free and without an entrance exam for both national and foreign students. The UBA has certain requirements for its foreign students, and specifically for non-Spanish speakers. You can consult its practical guide for foreign entrants to the UBA, but we provide you with the most useful and necessary information. If you completed secondary or university studies in a non-Spanish speaking country, you must prove the minimum required level of Spanish language (Level B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages).
