3. Prepare your trip

Only when you have received the letter of acceptance from the University de los Andes you can start to prepare your trip:

  • First go to the Chilean consulate in your country with the letter of acceptance to get the student visa. Foreign students who come to study at the Universidad de los Andes, have to arrive in the country with a student visa.
  • Get medical insurance with international coverage.
  • Check out the subjects that were accepted and their validation.

Universidad de los Andes does not provide dormitories for its students. However, we help make your search for housing easier by recommending different options like apartments, hostels and homestays in different parts of the city.

We recommend looking for a place to stay in the following areas because of the easy access to public transportation: Providencia, Las Condes and Santiago Centro.

In order to find addresses, distances, and bus routes you can look at:
