Universidad de Buenos Aires

La Universidad de Buenos Aires (UBA) es la más grande de Argentina y la segunda universidad más grande de América Latina por matrícula. Fundada el 12 de agosto de 1821 en la ciudad de Buenos Aires, consta de 13 departamentos, 6 hospitales, 10 museos y está vinculada a 4 colegios: Colegio Nacional de Buenos Aires, Escuela Superior de Comercio Carlos Pellegrini, Instituto Libre de Segunda Enseñanza y Escuela de Educación Técnica Profesional de Producción Agropecuaria y Agroalimentaria.

La UBA no tiene campus central. Una ciudad Universitaria centralizada (literalmente, “ciudad universitaria”) se inició en la década de 1960, pero contiene sólo dos escuelas, con las otras en diferentes lugares de Buenos Aires.

El acceso a la universidad es gratuito para todos, incluidos los extranjeros. Sin embargo, los programas de postgrado cobran derechos de matrícula que pueden ser cubiertos con becas de investigación para aquellos estudiantes con un desempeño académico sobresaliente.

La Universidad ha producido cuatro premios Nobel, una de las instituciones más prolíficas del mundo hispanohablante. Según el QS World University Rankings (2015/16), la Universidad de Buenos Aires ocupa el puesto 124 en el mundo y, según Top Universities, es la 46ª mejor del mundo.
