Accommodation, transportation, study materials, meals and personal expenses are all things to consider before applying to university.
Bachelor degree at PUCV
Enrollment in a bachelor's program at PUCV is based on the results of entrance exams.
The campus of PUCV is located in Valparaiso. This is a fairly large city that opens up many opportunities for students: from cafes, restaurants and other entertainment to internships at large companies. But an urban campus can also be a disadvantage, because big city life distracts some students from their studies. The educational institution has its own library. Here, students do their homework or just have a good time reading an interesting book. Foreigners who come to PUCV through exchange programs study and live with local students. Thus, the university promotes intercultural exchange and the establishment of interethnic relations.
