    Universidad Alberto Hurtado (UAH) was founded in 1997 by the Society of Jesus to develop the research and graduate programmes created by the Latin American Institute of Doctrine and Social Studies (ILADES), the Centre for Research and Education Development (CIDE) and Roberto Bellarmino Foundation which was founded in the mid-60s.

    UAH is located in a historical preservation neighbourhood with architecture dating from the early 20 th century. Universidad Alberto Hurtado’s campus is situated in downtown Santiago de Chile.

    Since its founding mission, UAH has been conceived as an institution with a strong vocation for public service. Its contribution to the human development and the promotion of a more just society, both in Chile and Latin America, becomes visible through the excellence level of an academic, intellectual and professional work, characterized by a Christian, humanist, pluralist vision and a deep ethical and social sense.

    Currently UAH has more than 4,500 students enrolled in 28 undergraduate programmes, 18 master’s degrees, 41 certificates and one PhD programme in the following study areas: Social Sciences, Humanities, Philosophy, Education, Law and Psychology.

    The main language of instruction at UAH is Spanish. Students are required to have B1 equivalent Spanish or four semesters of Spanish to complete a semester exchange at UAH.

    UAH offers an intensive 48-hr Spanish programme over three or four weeks, organised by professors specialising in the teaching of Spanish to non-native speakers. A pre-semester Intensive Spanish Programme is also available for exchange students interested in improving their language
    proficiency.
