Update on our Fall Semester 2020

The present information aims to update you all on the status of our International Semester Programs for the period July – December 2020 ( Fall Semester).

 

  • Given the health conditions that Chile is experiencing and the unstable international situation, among other factors, we have decided to maintain our academic semester activity online only, so that international students can take courses in this modality. The UAI will not receive students in its campuses in a face-to-face mode during the whole year 2020.
  • In case you want to postpone or cancel the exchange for another academic period (SPRING/FALL 2021) please inform us through our e-mail: rrii@uai.cl
  • The Fall 2020 UAI Academic Calendar will be kept as previously reported. However, we have extended an extraordinary application period, as well as minor adjustments to the calendar.
