The academic calendar at UCA is divided into two semesters, as in many other universities in El Salvador. For convenience, tuition fees are calculated per year. The cost of study at UCA is the same for locals and foreigners — from 1,000 USD per year. The educational institution helps with tuition fees through financial support programs. They are available to local and international students. The cost of education and the availability of scholarships can be checked on the official website.

It is necessary to pay attention to other costs: accommodation, transportation, study materials, food, and personal expenses.

UCA campus

The campus of UCA is located in San Salvador. 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. Students have access to the extensive scientific library of the university. The collection of scientific papers helps them in conducting research. UCA accepts students for international exchange programs. This is a great opportunity to gain experience in intercultural communication for both international and local students.
