Study in Costa Rica

Beaches, tropical rainforests, highly developed society and an enviable quality of life: studying in Costa Rica may sound almost too good to be true. In the 2014 QS University Rankings: Latin America, Costa Rica has four universities in the region’s top 200 – relatively few when compared to countries like Brazil and Mexico.

However, its top ranking institution, Universidad de Costa Rica (UCR), comes in at a very respectable 29th, having climbed significantly from 59th in the previous year’s ranking. UCR is joined in Latin America's top 100 by the Universidad Nacional Costa Rica (also public), and in the top 200 by Universidad Latinoamericana de Ciencia y Tecnología Costa Rica (ULACIT), which is part of the private sector.
