My exchange experience in Chile has been unforgettable, without a doubt the best time of my student life. I lived 5 months in Santiago, spending every day with incredible people from all over the world. I learned so much from them, their customs and cultures, local foods, and most importantly, I made the most amazing friends.

Because I really liked Chile when I came just to get to know Chile, as tourist in 2014. Then, when the opportunity to study here came I was really interested. The UBO was the only University that had the academic mobility program in Chile. I researched about the University and saw that it was good and it would be an unrivalled experience.
