The city of Buenos Aires is truly fascinating due to its cultural and social diversity and richness. The "Paris of South America" combines European style with a Latin feeling, and delights visitors and locals alike with its hundreds of statues, parks and plazas, cafes, bookstores, theatres, and world-class restaurants. There is always something to do in this city where soccer matches, concerts and tango shows happen every day of the week, and gather the gregarious "porteños" (habitants of Buenos Aires), who love meeting in public spaces.
Students apply in two or three phases. First, students apply via Missouri S&T's Globalminers.mst.edu portal by creating profile and filling out questionnaires and summiting the required documents. Then, students apply to the chosen school via the Global E3 website. Detailed information on the Global E3 application process can be found here. If accepted, the student would complete the post decision materials via GlobalMiners.mst.edu. Please note that sometimes the host university would also require students to submit an application for the purposes of university processing.
Students wishing to apply for more then one program have to complete separate applications for each program/university. Students are encouraged to apply for minimum of two programs to increase the probability of placement. Seat at the chosen school is not guaranteed.
