UBO gave warm farewell to its first semester exchange students
With a sample of Chilean native culture, the Direction of International Institutional Relations of Universidad Bernardo O’Higgins sent off the exchange students that studied at the different faculties of the higher education institutions during the first semester of 2018.
Young students who attend partnered universities from Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Spain, France, Mexico, Paraguay and Peru became familiar with the key traditions of the Mapuche people, the musical instruments used in sacred ceremonies as well as utensils used in everyday life; they also indulged in a tasting session prepared by Doraliza Coñuepan of the la Venancio Coñuepan Community.
“It is meaningful that foreigners get to know our country’s native culture, because they take this knowledge and experiences back to their countries, spreading and invigorating our traditions” stated Coñuepan.
For the second semester of 2018, students from Argentina, Bolivia, Colombia, Spain, France and Mexico are taking care of the final details before landing in our country and living the experience of studying at UBO.
