From the vineyards in the center of the country, to the Andes mountain range in the north-east, to the colorful, bustling capital Buenos Aires, Argentina has so much to offer as a study abroad destination.

Argentina is a great wine producer and it's known for this the world over. But there's so much more to Argentina than just delicious pinot grigios and merlots. The country also benefits from a wealth of natural resources, like gas and petrol, and heavy steel and car manufacturing. This makes Argentina a particularly attractive place to study a STEM subject.

Argentina is also a great place to build your language skills, thanks to Spanish being its national language. However, even though Spanish is one of the most widely-spoken languages in the world, plenty of Argentinian schools do offer programs taught in English.
