Why did you choose to go to Buenos Aires, Argentina?

Because of a partnership between my home university and a private university in Bs As.

My living costs, incl. housing and food, were 600€ per month approx.

What is the student lifestyle like in Buenos Aires?

It's the perfect city for students. My classes were easy and I had a lot of time to spend with friends, explore the city and travel.

How much does it cost to live in Buenos Aires?

My living costs, incl. housing and food, were 600€ per month approx.

Is the language easy to get to grips with? Are there language courses available at the University?

My university didn't offer classes, but most of them do I guess. Argentinean Spanish is difficult for those who only were taught castellano. First, it was difficult to follow the classes but in the end I got familiar with the porteno way of speaking.

What's the easiest or most economical way to travel to Buenos Aires from your city?


Where would you recommend to go on a night out in Buenos Aires?

There's hundreds of bars, nightclubs, restaurants etc. Palermo is a nice and relatively safe area which has a lot to offer. I frequently went to a bars in Recoleta, Palermo Soho or Palermo Hollwood, then took an uber to the clubs at Avenida Juan B Justo.
One of my favorite places to go out and party was Bayside Club, but it takes a while to get there.

And for eating? Can you recommend some good restaurants in Buenos Aires?

Buenos Aires has amazing food at every corner. Just try it.

What good cultural sites are there to visit?

Buy a Lonely Planet, it's full of recommendations about museums, parks, monuments, giuded tours, traditional cafés, etc.

Check the websites of organizations helping international students. BAIS Argentina, Study Buenos Aires, PALS and Argentina for All host great events to get to know people, explore the city and have fun. They also offer trips to Mendoza, Uruguay, the Argentinean North, Puerto Iguazú, etc.
