The academic calendar at ORT is divided into two semesters. For convenience, tuition fees are calculated per year. The cost of education and the availability of scholarships can be checked on the official website.
In addition to the cost of education, it is necessary to pay attention to additional costs: accommodation, transportation, study materials, meals and personal expenses.
The campus of ORT is located in Montevideo. 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. There is a library on the grounds of the university. There are collected scientific works of graduates and teachers of the university, as well as fiction. Foreigners who come to ORT through exchange programs study and live with local students. Thus, the university promotes intercultural exchange and the establishment of interethnic relations.
There are many options to stay in the country after completing your studies at the university. One of them is to get an offer from an employer and apply for a work visa. Detailed information can be found on the embassy website. You can find other options for immigration in our article.
