When choosing an educational institution, it is necessary to take into account additional costs: accommodation, transportation, educational materials, meals and personal expenses.
The campus of the educational institution is located in San Jose. This opens up all the delights of life in a big city for students: a rich infrastructure, a large selection of entertainment, convenient transport, as well as more opportunities for internships or part-time jobs. However, for some students, such an abundance of opportunities can be distracting. The university has a library, in the collection of which you will find not only textbooks and scientific works, but also works of the classics, modern literature and much more. Foreigners who come to ULACIT through exchange programs study and live with local students. Thus, the university promotes intercultural exchange and the establishment of interethnic relations.
