As a natural beauty of the world, Peru has a long-standing history that has dazzled many over the centuries. Students will be able to learn about a culture that has existed both in reality and as myth. We will discuss what type of tuition costs are available for international students, along with what is expected towards the living costs throughout the country. We will also cover what languages are spoken throughout Peru.

Universities in Peru:

  • National University of San Marcos
  • Pontifical Catholic University of Peru
  • Cayetano Heredia University
  • National University of Engineering
  • The University of Piura
  • National Agrarian University
  • Pacific University
  • National University of Education Enrique Guzmán y Valle
  • The University of San Martin de Porres
  • National University of Saint Anthony the Abbot in Cuzco
  • Ricardo Palma University
  • National University of Callao
  • Scientific University of the South
  • Inca Garcilaso de la Vega University
  • The National University of Trujillo
  • Federico Villarreal National University
  • Jorge Basadre Grohmann National University
  • Antonio Ruiz de Montoya University

Student Cost of Living

The most common type of apartment in Peru is one that is shared with flat mates or roommates. In doing so, students can save more by simply renting a room with other students. Which means that student can spend as low as 250 Peruvian soles per month. Or as high as 500 Peruvian soles per month. It simply depends on location and how many room mates are sharing one apartment or house.

The high end of comfortable living in Peru would be around $1,500 USD. Which would state that renting a single bedroom apartment, with all utilities, transportation, and necessities that are accounted for. Again, that is the high end of the cost spectrum, which means a student could live quite comfortably on $950 USD per month too.

Living in the capital or big cities will be quite costly because of mass markets and inflation, however, living slightly outside of the city but still within walking distance can change the cost for an apartment drastically.

It would be important that students learn the transaction difference between the Peruvian Soles and their own native currency.

Cost of Tuition

The normal costs for a bachelor’s degree come to about $2,400 – $6,000 USD. Where a master’s degree can average to around $4,000 – $9,000 USD. These prices do depend on which university and what course or program is pursued. For example, any program where a student will need to multiple facilities like medicine or science, will cause the tuition cost to rise.

Some programs can cost up to $40,000 USD per academic year, presumably this is for a Ph.D. in medicine.

Languages Spoken in Peru

There are effectively 3 main languages spoken in Peru. They are Spanish, Quechua, and Aymara. However, Spanish is the official language of Peru. Other languages spoken in the country include multiple forms of Amazonian languages and dialects, sign language, German, Italian, Japanese, Chinese, Portuguese, English, and French.

However, international students would be far better off if they had a basic understanding of the Spanish language before arriving in Peru.
