Academic life

The principal method of instruction takes place in the form of lectures. Most modules are assessed based on one exam or paper counting as the only grade in the class. Some professors may also give midterm exams or papers. In general it is assumed that the student has no previous knowledge on the given subject and you will therefore be required to work hard to obtain a good grade. It is rare for students to receive a 10 - the highest grade possible in Argentina. In most classes, the majority of students will receive either aprobado or muy bueno (from 4 to 6)

Capital of the Argentine Republic is located on the River Plate coast. The Río de la Plata and the Riachuelo are the natural borders of the city on the east and south, respectively. The rest of the metropolitan perimeter is surrounded by the General Paz Avenue from north to west. This avenue provides a fast connection between the city and the Greater Buenos Aires, a densely populated area with important business and industrial activity.

The climate of Buenos Aires is mild all year round. The mean annual temperature is 18º C (64.4º F), making extremely hot and cold days very infrequent. Thus, visitors can enjoy walking around the city in any season. July is the coldest month. In summer, the weather is hot and humid. Rains are more frequent in autumn and spring (from March to June and from September to December, respectively).
