UTDT is an important and well-known small private university and an economic think-tank that was founded in 1958. UTDT offers courses in history, political science, economics and international studies. UTDT is located in an upper class neighborhood, Belgrano, which is about 30 minutes from the center of Buenos Aires.
With a population of over 10 million, Buenos Aires is often referred to as the "Paris" of South America. The city offers students endless attractions and entertainment with many sights of historic and contemporary significance. As the capital city, there are many opportunities to travel to other locations in Argentina as well as South America. More information is available in the online International Student Handbook.

Students must be in good academic and disciplinary standing with the university to study abroad. When reviewing applications for approval, disciplinary records will be taken into consideration and students must be cleared by the Dean’s office to study abroad. Students on conduct probation will not be able to study abroad if they are on conduct probation that does not expire prior to the start date of the semester abroad program.
Non LALIS majors and minors
Students are required to attend a pre-semester Spanish course specifically designed for visiting exchange students to UTDT. This pre-semester course does not carry academic credit, but is essential preparation for coursework at UTDT and for adaptation to Buenos Aires.
Courses are taught in Spanish and are on the semester system. A full-load at UTDT is three to four classes depending on the credit conversion below. Students will earn transfer credit for courses for which a grade of "C" or better was earned.

UTDT's grade scale corresponds directly to Richmond's A-F scale.
UTDT does not own or operate campus housing. Argentine students typically live at home or in privately owned resident halls or flats. EnjoyBA is a company specializing in international student housing that Richmond has worked with for several years. Richmond students are required to live in homestays and have been very happy with the host families they have lived with through EnjoyBA in years past.
