First, check that your home university or polytechnic institute has an ongoing exchange agreement with Duoc UC.
Thoroughly research your prospective courses. Most of our programs are in Spanish; therefore make sure you have sufficient proficiency in this language for your classes. We do offer a free 44 hour Spanish course for all non-native Spanish speakers, but in order to successfully complete your courses we advise at least an intermediate Spanish level.
For non-Spanish speakers, Duoc UC also offers the Tourism and Hospitality Program, fully taught in English
Once you have all the documentation, please have the coordinator of international relations at your home institution send a digital version to Maria Jimenez email@example.com
Please bear in mind that after receiving your documentation it can take up to a month for us to process it and send you an answer, due the large amount of documentation we receive during the admission periods.
15 August– 15 October*: application for the first semester, March – July term
15 February – 15 April*: application for the second semester, August – December term
*We advise students with Chinese nationality to apply as soon as the application period begins since the visa procedure can take up to six months.
A month after the application period ends, students will be informed via e-mail whether they have been accepted or not. In the case of being accepted, a hard copy of the acceptance letter will be sent to the International Student Officer of the student’s home institution.
If accepted, the student must:
Approach the nearest Chilean embassy/consulate and request the necessary information regarding the student visa procedure. A student visa is compulsory in order to participate in the Duoc UC exchange program. Upon arrival a simple copy of the student visa must be handed in to the Student Coordinator at Duoc UC.
Retain a medical insurance with international coverage for the period the student will be in Chile. A simple copy of the insurance must also be handed in to the Student Coordinator upon arrival.
Together with the acceptance letter, the student will receive the name and e-mail of their Program Director. It is very important the student gets in touch with their Director via e-mail to agree on the courses he/she will be taking at Duoc UC. All e-mail correspondence should cc the student coordinator firstname.lastname@example.org
At the end of their exchange all international students have to answer the “International Students Survey”. The link to the survey will be sent at the end of the semester. Once the student has answered the survey, a hard copy of the transcript record will be sent to the International Student Officer in their home university. A digital copy of the transcript can be sent directly to the student if requested by him/her.
