My University- USIL

I am studying at the University of San Ignacio de Loyola in the Molina District in Lima. Most students live somewhere outside of the Molina District and take public transportation (taxi, bus or convi) to arrive at school each day. This ride can range anywhere from 10 min to an hour or more.
- Classes are offered in English and Spanish at USIL. Most of the local students speak and understand English, but if you are studying the Spanish language, I would recommend taking 1 or 2 classes besides your Spanish class in Spanish!
- Choosing courses and enrolling for the semester will take place in Lima during the USIL orientation. You will be assissted by the international office on campus. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND: to know what courses you want to take ahead of time and ensuring that your courses are pre-approved by your home university! You only have a week to change courses so you must know ahead of time.
-  USIL is a great university for those studying: business, engineering/architecture, hospitality, tourism and gastronomy (their culinary school is massive and state of the art!)
- There are 95 international students for the fall 2011 semester at USIL. The campus and the overall student body is much smaller than most universities in the US, so you will get a chance to get to know the people you see on campus.
