What does it mean for international students to study in the grand and luxurious country of Venezuela? Many things actually, and here are a few of them.
Maybe the first question should be can students study in this country, because there is never enough talk about studying in Venezuela.
Anywhere from 5 to 500 American students alone end up studying abroad in Venezuela each year making it a very unique study abroad destination. This doesn’t count the thousands of international students who come from all over the globe who wish to make Venezuela a new chapter in their higher education.
Despite this, Venezuela is among the most urbanized countries in Latin America. This means the country stays up to date with the latest trends and if you haven’t heard of the Miss World, Miss Venezuela, or the Miss Universe pageant… Venezuela goes to great lengths to celebrate this incredible venture.
A crazy whirlwind of history is available at the University of Venezuela which just so happens to be one of the oldest colleges in the world. Which happens to be pretty spectacular! Everyone from prior presidents to scientists are known alumni at this university.
Venezuela’s University of the Andes by far has one of the most interesting histories to date. Going as far back as the 1800’s the college was actually decorated as a higher educational institution and given it’s 4-year level degree status in the 1800’s. Which was pretty rare back in those days!
The spoken languages in the country are Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, Italian, and English. Now students should brush up on their Spanish phrases and dialogue before trying to send in an admissions application. Why? Because all students should have a basic understanding of another country’s native language.
