    The Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (PUC), was founded on June 21, 1888. It has 18 Schools distributed on four campuses in Santiago and one regional campus located in southern Chile.Approximately 20.000 students participate in its undergraduate and graduate programs, which cover a wide range of disciplines and professional schools. Its faculty includes approximately 2.000 professors, 89,2% of them have graduate studies abroad, and several have received prestigious prizes and recognition for their contribution to academic knowledge.The university's leadership in research and graduate programs has had considerable influence on the country's cultural and scientific development. It is an important national center of research in social science, natural sciences, health, economics, agriculture, philosophy, theology, arts and letters. In addition, its research activities enable it to support doctoral programs and to create an intellectually stimulating educational environment.Located in a young and geographically distant country, the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile believes that maintaining an active exchange program with foreign universities is crucial for its academic development.This interest has led to the establishment of exchange agreements with more than a hundred and seventy universities in 30 countries around the world. Each year a growing number of students, largely from the United States, Europe and Asia come to study in our classrooms, and many PUC students have the same experience abroad.
