The University, City and Region
Founded in 1888, The Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile is a national non state University with 30% public support. UC has 18 Schools distributed among four campuses in Santiago and one regional campus located in the south of Chile
The City of Santiago
Chile's capital city and cultural and economic centre of the nation, Santiago occupies a spectacular intermountain basin at the foot of the highest peaks in the Andes. Safe and modern, Santiago sits in a basin between the Coast Range to the west and the Andes to the east.
World-class ski areas in the central Andes lie only forty-five minutes away, up steep switchbacks which climb over 7500 feet in twenty-six miles. Numerous vineyards surround the capital; hot springs, seventeenth-century colonial haciendas, and national parks in both the Andes and the Coast Range, all make easy day trips. At night, visitors may choose from a variety of restaurants serving all types of regional and ethnic cuisines.
