Peru officially the Republic of Peru is a country in western South America. The capital city is Lima. It is bordered in the north by Ecuador and Colombia, in the east by Brazil, in the southeast by Bolivia, in the south by Chile, and in the west by the Pacific Ocean.
Peru has over 80 universities, offering a wide range of subjects with private institutions outnumbering public. Lima and Cusco are the two major preferred cities in Peru for international students.
How to enroll into a Peruvian university?
- Pre-registration for courses in June, usually manually rather than online
- Results of applications in July (approved with acknowledgement of credits, approved without acknowledgement of credits, or denied). These are sent out by email. Approval does not necessarily obligate enrollment.
- Pre-enrollment – students fill out a pre-enrollment card, which is sent directly to their emails address and must be returned by an established date (usually between the end of July and August).
- Evaluation of pre-enrollment application – once approved, enrollment in chosen courses will take place.
The annual calendar of activities for the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru (for example) is divided into three academic periods: Semester 1 (from March to July), Semester 2 (from August to December) and the Summer Session (from January to February). The amount of contact hours per week depends largely on the course.
