Please keep in mind that not all subjects are offered every semester.
We recommend you to access the syllabus (programa de estudio) of each degree program to obtain information on the different subjects and the semesters in which they are taught.

Academic Credit Transfer
UNSAM is working to establish its own credit system, which will be based on the student's total workload and will be compatible with other systems including the European system (ECTS). In the meantime, we provide the following reference information:
A full-time student at UNSAM takes approximately three subjects of 64 hs (which only consider the amount of time the professor spends interacting with the student) each term. This means that 192 contact hours would be equivalent to one full time semester in the European system, i.e. 30 ECTS. Based on this information, each university will have to evaluate how many credits are assigned to each subject.
B1 level (at least) accreditation in Spanish is required. The Language Program offers fee-based language courses.
Nomination by your University
