Quito Direct Enrollment - Universidad San Francisco de Quito

Program Overview

Quito USFQ

Quito is perfect for the adventurous soul. With its surrounding mountains, you're always just a climb away from a breathtaking view of the valley and from a bird's-eye view of the colonial Spanish architecture that makes the city famous. Plus, Quito is a great base for trips to the rainforests and marine habitats that make Ecuador famous around the world. We invite you to Ecuador to improve your Spanish while enjoying all that this amazing city has to offer.

While in Quito, you will directly enroll at the Universidad San Francisco de Quito (USFQ) and take all of your courses at the University. Because USFQ offers nearly 1,500 courses each semester in a wide variety of disciplines, students with almost any academic interest can find exciting and challenging enrollment options.
