Bachelor degree at USCO
Students are accepted to bachelor's programs at USCO based on the results of entrance exams.
The campus of USCO is located in La Plata. 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 university has a library where students can do their homework, write scientific papers or just read interesting books. USCO regularly accepts students for international exchange programs, providing both local and international students with the opportunity to come into contact with different cultures and gain unique experience.
