NYU Sponsored Excursions
Travel is an important part of the study abroad experience; NYU Buenos Aires encourages students to travel not only in Argentina but also throughout South America.
Argentina offers diverse landscapes and destinations, among them the city of Cordoba, famous for its colonial architecture; the magnificent falls in Iguazú; and Mendoza, known for its wine and rugged mountains. On weekends, students can take a ferry to the beautiful and tranquil Uruguayan city of Colonia del Sacramento.
During the semester, NYU Buenos Aires partially sponsors a 4-day trip to one of the many Argentine provinces. Students usually pay a deposit of USD 100 to 200 depending on the destination of that semester. Students also have a one-week break mid-semester during which they are encouraged to take longer journeys to the glaciers in Patagonia, the beaches of Brazil, or the ruins in Machu Picchu, Perú.
Student can get discount airplane tickets or take comfortable long-range buses to get where they are going, and there are numerous local travel agencies and services that will help them make their travel arrangements. NYU Buenos Aires can assist with planning, but students are ultimately responsible for independent travel plans.
