As the best public school in the region, it doesn’t disappoint at all. Accessibility makes it a great school to go to, and the high reputation of most of its teachers makes a great academic experience overall. Something to improve is that the program is overfocused on psychoanalysis and should embrace teaching about other areas of psychology.View more
One of the highlights of UBA has to do with the methodological and epistemological insights. They value critical thinking in a way I never thought could be achieved in a University. The counterpart is that the amount of reading material is massive. The lectures are really cohesive and open to long debates that enrich their professors and students.
On the other side, the infrastructure is in really bad shape. The bathrooms are dirty and the classrooms cold. Also, its internal bureaucracy functions very slowly and it’s not yet fully digitalized. It has to do with budget issues mainly but it really makes the University experience hard sometimes.
Another thing that I value a lot it’s the organisational capacity of the students. Mainly the way in which we address controversial issues and take practical action to make things better. And we often achieve it!
In conclusion, I think that the good qualities of the University make up for the ones that are not so good. And the only way to change things is by staying and working to make a better environment for future students.View more
I’m in my last year of a religious school. My school is pretty big and I’m in Humanities. All of the subjects are completely useful, especially one: Politics. That’s probably my favourite one since I’ve always liked those matters. Because of that, I’ve already chosen which career I would like to study: International Relations. I think the UBA will give me the chance to learn a lot. Their teachers are great and completely dedicated to their job, and people are also very nice. I believe that it is an excellent university and one of the best in my country.View more
I strongly recommend it because it’s real life, you have to earn your things here, there is no help. So, if you want to grow as a person it’s definitely the place to go. Being an Argentinian student it was the correct decision.View more

One of the best spanish-speak university in the word. Prestigious and free. The lack of material resources encourages one to be proactive and gives you that “street wisdom” that more classy universities dont have.View more

The title of this university is the most valuable to get a job in Argentina.View more

The University of Buenos Aires has been chosen several times as the best university in Latin America. In the world ranking of universities, which analyzes eight hundred universities throughout the world, made in 2017, was ranked 75th. This fact is not surprising since it passed four of the five Nobel laureates of Argentina. Education is demanding. It is important to be well organized and have time, as well as interest, to study. Students should be committed since both the exercises to do as the theoretical material can become dense for those who are not accustomed to reading and research. The teachers are professionals. Some of them have worked abroad, others have several degrees or have written books. Some even give lectures inside or outside Argentina. To enter the university it is necessary to pass a course of one year, called Common Basic Cycle (or CBC) to which half of the entrants end up failing, thus leaving the university. Being a free university, only pay for reading material, supplies and transportation, access to people of different classes and social groups is allowed, allowing the integration of different sectors. Homophobia, xenophobia, machismo, anti-Semitism and other forms of discrimination are less common because they have so many different groups. Students tend to be friendly and dedicated teachers. Of course this is a generalization. The disadvantages of studying at the University of Buenos Aires, or UBA, are in its problems of buildings (Cubicles of the bathroom without a door, floods in the bathrooms as well as little maintenance of them. If the teachers consider necessary, they stop working and cut a street to show their disagreement with the measures of the government. As a consequence, many classes will be lost, most of which will not be compensated, nor can the university be trusted because many students find out about the unemployment once they have arrived in the classroom and not before. , In most cases, the exact date of unemployment. The decision to join a strike or strike depends on the teacher and varies depending on the Faculty as it is rare to see unemployed, for example, in the Faculty of Law, and if in Sociales) Another drawback, related to the previous point, is the political interest. Some, both pupils and teachers, take their ideology to fanaticism and are shocking to others. However, these are few and most prefer to ignore them. Fanaticism is often found in some faculties more than in others, being difficult and almost impossible to find fanatics, for example, in the Faculty of Medicine. Fanaticism, in spite of everything, rarely transcends words and has its yield in those faculties related to the politics like Philosophy and Letters and Social. However, and despite everything, being a Social student who has been in this faculty for three years, I recommend it considerably. I recommend the UBA to anyone who is willing to study and keep an open mind. I have met many who graduated from the UBA and they recognize how the obstacles made them stronger. For those who intend to immigrate do not let fear corrode them because many of the students of the university are immigrants being more than thirteen thousand. If you want to be the next peacekeeper, such as Nobel Peace Prize winner Carlos Saavedra Lamas, study hormones or antibodies, such as Cesar Milstein and Bernardo Alberto Houssay Nobel Prize winners, or make great discoveries that help To the fight against diseases, like Luis Federico Leloir winner of the Nobel prize of Chemistry, then you have found your university.View more
Study in the faculty of engineering of the UBA. It is a great faculty that has a strong base of mathematics and physics, whose subjects are in the first years. And the last 2 or 3 years, you really see specialty subjects. I recommend patience since this strong base helps a lot for the development and performance of the future engineer.View more
