    My school

    The University of the Andes is undoubtedly one of the best houses of study in Venezuela, I explain because, in a very personal way, I think that despite the country situation that Venezuela is going through, the University of the Andes, is still standing and enforcing your opinion, your type of education, education with values ​​with ethics and above all education given by trained people, whom at the end of account we end up calling Masters in the whole word explorer, I as a doctor graduated from this university every day I am more and more proud of having chosen her as my alama Mater.

  • Excellent

    In education, it is excellent. Expert professors in various specialities are up to the task of imparting knowledge that leaves us at the level of the best universities in the world. Regrettably, the country’s political situation has been responsible for degrading it in every way.

  • BA in Literature and Literature from ULA

    I studied Literature and Literature with a specialization in English Language, with two specializations, teaching and translation, at the University of Los Andes. This university is considered the first University in the country, because its research principle gives it a high prestige and position. It is a very particular university as far as geographic location is concerned, since it is the city of Mérida, with a spectacular climate, located between mountains and purely university; what makes life very pleasant and enjoyable. The faculties, in their majority, are in the center of the city; but the humanities is more towards the mountainous area. This is also a university with diverse programs for both humanists and scientists, with programs in engineering, architecture, health sciences, economics, law, among many others. It is also characterized by excellence in its teaching. In my studies, specifically, all the teachers were specialized in teaching and were native speakers of English (American and English), which made the experience much more enriching because it allowed me to better know the literature and the cognitive area of ​​the language. The university was careful that teachers who were not teachers, for example doctors, dentists, engineers or some other specialist, were taught the teaching component. I can say that during my time university life was very particular, being easy to recognize to see the students to which faculty they belonged, given that there were dress codes and personal characterization depending on the race which was not seen in other universities. Although many things have changed over the years, the ULA is still the best university in Venezuela with international renown.

  • My years at the University

    In my time when we graduated from high school, it was relatively easy to enter the University. My access was for Architecture in Merida, Venezuela to the ULA (Universidad Los Andes). My memories of that time, very good, because I chose a beautiful career that required a lot of dedication. They were nights of continuous work and holidays suspended until the last day, with great teachers to advise me during all that time; that finally brought enough satisfactions because I am an architect of one of the best universities in the country. The facilities and spaces of the Faculty were spectacular, I had very good colleagues with whom I still have very strong friendships, and especially the city where the university is located lent much to make the studies feel less strong. The city with an extraordinary climate, the population mostly student, a lot of sport and one of rich and typical food, all this and the desire to meet the goals achieved the desired end, the Graduation; a day of joy with your family and friends, for the culmination of the great experience that was this race.

  • Jose Miguel
    An exceptional place to study with a spring climate all year round, in a city that is full of youth and celebration, where achieving the best product in what we do is our doctrine.

    The University of the Andes of Mérda Venezuela is a macro society of 50,000 students and 50,000 workers, which welcomes people from all states and some of the world. It is listed as the best university in the country next to the UCV in Caracas. It is a house of studies whose physical spaces are fragmented and distributed throughout the metropolitan area of ​​the Andean capital. It has perhaps the widest variety of careers in Venezuela. It is an important center for experimental scientific research, production and cultivation of artists, athletes and visionaries. It has its own means of social communication, transportation, habitas, public places and entertainment; in addition to abundant spaces for culture such as libraries, studios, theaters, galleries among others. Our house of studies is waiting for you to become part of the great motor family of Venezuela and the world of the world. With more than two centuries training professionals, our great house has become bigger and bigger with each graduate who has left his mark; and reciprocally, those of us who have passed through the classroom will enjoy a level of recognition that transcends borders and improves everything it touches. – José Bourrillon. "Architect of the ULA 2016"
