The Middlebury School in Uruguay is based in Montevideo. With very few American students, the capital city is an ideal location for linguistic and cultural immersion.
Students on the program come in at the intermediate-advanced level of Spanish and adhere to the Middlebury Language Pledge® to reap the benefits of linguistic immersion. By living and studying with Uruguayans and getting involved in the community through volunteer work, internships, and extracurricular activities, students can build authentic relationships and integrate fully into life in Uruguay.
While in Montevideo, students live in homestays and study with local students. They enroll directly alongside their Uruguayan peers at one of Middlebury’s three host institutions: the Universidad Católica del Uruguay, the Universidad de la República, or the Universidad ORT.
