Experience in University of San Francisco de Quito, Ecuador by Nicolas


Generally, what is University of San Francisco de Quito like?

Is important to understand that Ecuador is a completely different student culture, compared to Prague, or Europe in general. Student life is in no way comparable to the one in Europe, nonetheless the university is great.
Campus is beautiful, and with an average temperature along the year of 21C, there are some many places to go and relax or to do social life.

What are the facilities like?

Me personal believe is that there are too many students current infrastructure, nonetheless classes are nice, 20-30 people max per class. Many buildings, many faculties, open areas, restaurants, etc.
As mentioned before, don't expect anything like in Europe. I love studying in Europe but socially-wise and and due to its locations USFQ is amazing.

What are the tutors like?

I studied economics, it was extremely demanding. Quality of education, in economics, was high so don't expect a summer vacation. I think it all depends on your degree. Overall most of the staff at USFQ are PhD.s so you get quality education.

Are the lessons easy in University of San Francisco de Quito?

As mentioned before I think it all depends on the professor, in the module, and in the degree.

Does the University organise activities? If so, what are they like?

USFQ is very american in this way; always making events like Harry Potter day were students and staff dress up. Also every faculty have student unions, also activities such as theater, sports, etc.

Do you think there is a good quality of teaching?

My personal experience, I felt I was taught my many bad professors. Once I started full time economics it was hard, high quality, high demand.
