it? Well, it’s as good as we are telling you. One of the authors of
this blog studied through the Colfuturo agreement with the University of
Delaware and the experience was wonderful. This post gathers some of his
experiences ‘ what
I learned studying abroad: about the fear of change ‘.
This was what he told us:
Colfuturo’s offer for people interested in studying a second language?
Colfuturo has 27 agreements with universities in 8
countries to improve English, French or German. These agreements offer a
discount that can range from 10% to 55% on the value of the course. If a
person applies to one of these programs through Colfuturo, they can access the

countries can our readers do these language studies? Where are these
To advance English courses, we have agreements with
universities in Canada, United States, Malta, United Kingdom, New Zealand and
Australia. To study French, the universities with which we have agreements
are located in France and Canada.
a language program through Colfuturo?
In addition to the tuition
discount, we provide an accompaniment from the beginning of the process: we are the bridge between the student and the university.
The student will not have to communicate
directly with the university, that Colfuturo does process.
Another key point is that our agreements are with
universities, not with institutes or colleges; this is a guarantee of the
quality of the program and additionally allows the student to have access to
all the facilities of the university campus.
students take advantage of all those benefits they get from campus? Are
they actively integrated into the university life offered by this program?
Yes! In fact, several students decide to
continue their postgraduate and master’s studies in the same universities or
countries after perfecting their language.
Even those who do not
continue their studies give us good feedback
on the program. The good thing
about all this is that it is not just about attending the 4 or 5 hours of
English or French classes they have, but they can stay on campus all day to
attend the library, gym, swimming pools , to all spaces; They can even go
to courses in other academic programs.
students who take a language program with Colfuturo must return to Colombia
within a certain period?
No, students should not return to the country because
they do not go through a credit-scholarship program. They can do whatever
they decide as soon as they finish their program.
the application process for the Colfuturo language program?
- The first step is to attend
an information talk or connect to the talk through the Colfuturo
website. These talks are held twice a month: the second Saturday of each
month at 11 am and the last Thursday of the month at 6 pm. The talks are
essential because we explain how the whole process works and at what times to
- We have a call four times a
year: January, April, July and September, those interested must register during
one of those calls. They must fill out a registration form, which is
enabled on our website, and make a payment of 100,000 Colombian pesos. You
must also send us a copy of the ID card, the resume and the proof of payment of
100 thousand pesos.
- From the sending of the
previous information, the process of registration to the university and the
visa application lasts about 3 months. In that case, for example, those
who apply for the April call would travel during the months of August or
applicant choose the university and Colfuturo does the whole process?
Yes, they take care of the registration.
the steps once registration is made with Colfuturo?
Once Colfuturo sends the student documents to the
university, he receives his acceptance letter. We deliver that document to
the student along with a letter of support from Colfuturo to make their visa
The visa process is the sole responsibility of the
student and only when his visa is granted, the student notifies Colfuturo to
make the rest of the payment to the university. Before that, the student
must pay 3 million five hundred thousand Colombian pesos to Colfuturo to apply
Of course, all the money that the student is contributing to Colfuturo is paid
to his program, including the payment of the first 100,000 pesos.
When the visa is approved, the student pays the remaining balance to the
university through Colfuturo.
an age limit to apply?
None. The only requirement is that the applicant
is over 18 because universities do not receive minors.
Colfuturo language program offer any economic benefit?
In addition to the tuition discount, we have no other
economic benefits. We suggest entities such as Icetex, FinComercio and
Sufi, from Bancolombia, as a source of financing. We clarify that there is
no additional benefit with them because they are Colfuturo students.
advice do you have for students to make the most of the experience?
Review your goal and your current level in the
language you want to study. It is important that they do not leave with
such a basic level so that they do not need so much time for
improvement. Study everything you can in Colombia so that you travel with
an intermediate level and can get to practice or perfect what you learned here.
the profile of applicants for the Colfuturo language program?
Applicants are usually professionals, between the
ages of 23 and 35, who wish to improve their work profile. The percentage
of men and women is similar. The vast majority come from Bogotá DC,
followed by the departments of Antioquia, Santander, Risaralda and Valle del
Bonus tip on accommodation – Most universities offer accommodation service in
university residences or in family homes, and students have the option of
taking it or looking for accommodation on their own. An intermediate option is
to take the service of the university for a few months and look for another
option being at the destination.
