Peru Exchange

This is a bilateral exchange. The University of Lima is a large, modern university founded in 1962. The University is one of Lima′s premier private institutions and offers a full range of courses. Students should consult their faculty advisor and the Director of International Programs for specific course information and advice. Students are housed with families chosen by the university, enabling the students to become fully immersed in the language and culture of Peru. Cultural and recreational opportunities are varied in the metropolitan area, including theater, symphony, opera, ballet, and numerous museums. You may find additional information on the Universidad de Lima website.

Regarding Student Visas

Exchange Students are responsible for obtaining their own visas. Countries′ immigration policies change periodically; the absolute best source of information is the Consulate of the country for which you′re attempting to obtain a visa.

A student visa is a document issued by a country granting an individual permission to enter a country with the express purpose of completing studies there at a recognized institution. The process of obtaining a visa to study in another country can take weeks or months, so it is important to begin the process as soon as possible after being accepted to the exchange. Without a visa, you may not be allowed to enter the foreign country, even upon arrival at their airport.
