Because new course offerings may not be publicized until the start of the term, it is possible that not all eligible courses are listed above. Participants in this program who wish to enroll in any course not listed above must contact the Office of Transnational Programs by email to request approval. Participants should not expect to receive credit for courses that are not expressly approved by OTP.
Undergraduate courses are typically worth between 2-4 Georgetown credits and LLM courses are typically 1-2 credits, depending on the amount of time the class meets. Final credit amounts are determined when UTDT releases its timetable.
Approved students will submit their initial course preferences by March 24; however, registration in individual courses will not be confirmed until students arrive at UTDT in late July.
UTDT's grading system is available here. (Scroll to the bottom of the page.)
Spanish Language Proficiency
Students who participate in this program are required to have a high level of Spanish proficiency. The Office of Transnational Programs reserves the right to ask students to submit to language testing before issuing final approval for their participation.
The Universidad Torcuato Di Tella does not offer on-campus housing to its students. The International Programs Office at UTDT can assist in the housing search by offering a list of families who rent rooms to students (this provides a more intimate glimpse of Argentine life). The UTDT Office of International Programs can also provide information on off-campus student dormitories.
The budget below provides 2013 amounts. An updated 2015 budget will be posted as soon as it becomes available.
