Meet Your Resident Director
This is a great moment to live an experience that you will keep in your heart throughout your personal and academic life. I expect that students will open their minds and hearts to other forms of knowledge. While excellent academics is the main reason to study at Universidad Nacional de Córdoba, the richest aspect of your experience will be getting to know another culture – which I’m sure you will fall in love with!
