Study Abroad in Sucre

Stud Abroad in Sucre, Bolivia

About Sucre, Bolivia

Sucre, a charming colonial city in southern Bolivia, has been beautifully preserved thanks to its status as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The legislative capital of the country, Sucre has always been an influential city in the arts and academics despite
its small size.

With a population of about 150,000, Sucre is a tranquil and fascinating place to study Spanish while learning about Andean and colonial culture.

Its colonial-era structures - reminders of centuries of Spanish rule - include two universities, various churches, beautiful white-washed buildings and tree-lined plazas where students congregate to socialize and have a good time.

The Spanish Language School

Located in the heart of Sucre, our academic center is located just one block from the main plaza and a quick walk from virtually everything of interest.

The school has the capacity for about 40 students; our participants are pretty much equally divided between North Americans and Europeans.

Classes are held both during the mornings and afternoons.

Facilities include 7 classrooms, 2 common rooms, a kitchen, colonial-style balconies, 2 interior courtyards, a small roof deck with tons of sun, an entertainment room, reading lab, free internet access, a beautiful cafeteria (El Café Quito) and more!

Minimum age to study abroad in Sucre: 18 years old, unless traveling with a parent or guardian.
