List of universities in Uruguay

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In Uruguay—according to article 4 of Executive Decree 104/014—there are two types of higher education institutions:[1]

  • those engaged in teaching, research and extension to three or more unrelated subject areas, which use the name "university" (universidad in Spanish)[1]
  • those engaged in teaching, research and extension in one or more related subject areas, or in two unrelated, which are referred to as "university institute" (instituto universitario in Spanish)[1]

Hey guys, welcome to my channel If you haven't subscibed yet please click the link below and subscribe to my channel because I'm going to talk a lot about getting into foreign universities and life abroad. Today I'm going to tell you about American Universities and colleges where you can study for free So if you're interested in this topic, continue watching this video. The first thing I want to tell you there is no free education in the United States. Every single university will require you to pay something They would have tuition and fee section on their website and they'd tell you that tution fee is for example 23000$ a year or if we're talking about a top university it goes up to 200 000$ American education system is good that they provide a lot of scholarships assistanships to talented students and it's possible to study for free This happened to me when I got my full assitanship for MBA I got it from the University of Florida They provided me with assitanship that helped me cover tuition fees and housing and everything But I didn't take that offer and I decided to run my startup This is a different story If you subscribed, you probably know this story Today I want to share the names of those universities that provided financial aid Also I wanted to mention that there are certain profiles of students and it's really hard for these profiles to get financial aid because financial aid is provided for special students especially if we're talking about mid-level universities they're really interested to get really talented really bright students in order to increase their ranking because every single nationality will effect their profile for example, the university wouldn't want to have hundred thousand Chinese students and 2 Russians or 2 Indians. This is why they try to diversify their portfolio and make the nationality mix as outstanding as possible because as I said this affects their ranking and the higher their rank, the more aid they get from the state the more aid they get from their donors like students who already graduated from the college and got a great job and they're donating to the university and for example last year United States welcomed 1 million international students and those were mostly Indians and Chinese if you're not from those countries you have a benefit For example, if you're girl from Kazakhstan or you're a girl from Uruguay you would be underepresented and every university would want to have a female because you know in America there's this things about equality and they'll want to have 50% of males 50% females They want to have people from every single country in the world not from just China and India So you have a slightly better chance of getting in and getting financial aid On the other hand if you're an Indian male with background in IT they'll be a bit tougher so your test results like TOEFL, GMAT, GRE have to be really high And talking about financial aid first group of universities are universities first league They're Stanford, Harvard, you know all of the names that ring a bell in every single person's head and they're really high ranked and you'd get great job offers and these universities don't consider your finacial abilities when accepting you That happens is you apply to Stanford you get accepted to Stanford and then Stanford asks you How much does your family make per year if this nymber is below 65000$ then Stanford is going to say "hey, we're going to provide financial aid". If that's above 65000 a year they' d probably tell you you're able to sponsor education yourself this is how it works with high universities they don't do merit based scholarship assistanship. I don't say "they normally wouldn't do them They normally do financial based scholarships and assistanships So they would only consider your financial needs not your mental abilities because if you were able to get into Stanford MIT, Harvard There's no doubt that you're really talented really hard working There' s also another level of universities that don't really ring a bell but which are also very good and really good in rankings but they would consider your application for different kinds of financial aid after assessing your mental abilities your achievements your work experience if we're talking about universities like University of Chicago University of Florida, University of Illinois They'd give financial aid to best of the best So they have a lot of opportunities and those are scholarships if you get a scholarship you don't really owe you just get the money and start studying but if you're getting an assistanship that means you have to work 10 hours per week you'd be either helping a teacher during the lectures or doing some administrative work like filling in applications or checking applications from other international students but assistanship means you're doing something for a university they're pretty generous they would also cover your tuition fees and give you money for living and for accommodation So these colleges would asses if you're the best of the best and only the best of the best would get financial aid So when applying I would recommend you to pay attention to what kind of financial aid the university provides if we're talking about not Stanford, Harvard like Yvy league universities We're talking about like University of Florida michigan state university University of Chicago make sure that your application is brilliant Also it's important to notice that PhD students get funded in 90% of the cases If you're applying for PhD program No matter what university you're applying to you'd get all your costs covered by the University because when you're doing your PhD it means you can give something back to the University and you can do some work and University can pay you back When we're talking about Master's students Yes, it's possible to get financial aid but I can't say that 90% of the students are funded but it's possible and there are a lot of opportunities for graduate studies When we're talking about undergraduate studies Bachelor's programs This is a bit tough My company helps people to get into American Universities and we have a couple of cases when student got assistanship during her Bachelor's studies which is really rare because when you're a bachelor studentm you just got out of school you don't know how academics work and it's unfair to make you work 10 hours per week in addition to studying assistanship is not really common for bachelors but scholarships are the most common type of financial aid for Bachelor programs we have a student who got full scholarship to study in Yale She was really brilliant I'd say 5-10% of students get funded you have to be really outstanding to get funded for your Bachelor There are also colleges who provide financial aid for bachelors everybody One of the colleges is Berea College They're actually state tuition fee is 23000$ a year They provide assistanship to every single student and you end up paying 1000$ in tuition fees Almost free There are plenty of those colleges make sure if you've been to the US on Work and Travel program if you had any difficulties entering US If you had visa refusals or if you been deported I hope you haven't been deported if you had any problems crossing borders with the States it might be possible to get your visa refused if you're going to almost free colleges If you're accepted to Stanford and Harvard I hope there won't be any problems I'm not visa immigration specialist I'm just talking about cases that we had Make sure you haven't had any problems with visas if you're getting into that college which provides financial aid to everyone I also wanted to give you some numbers how much universities actually provide Berea college around 22000$ for everybody University of Chicago 48 000$ and tuition fee is around 45 000 they partly cover you accommodation cost and there are plenty of students who get all the costs covered it's worth trying to get to the University of Chicago Yale provides 55 000$ per year Our student got 60 000 per year she got her accommodation covered Duke University would provide 53 000 $ per year The best thing is to ask a university how much they provide They'd also have this information of the website So guys let me know if you have any questions about that please feel free to write them in comments I'd try and answer every single question if you need help with getting into American Universities I'd be more than ready to help you I normally do one to one consultation and I'd leave a link below because many of you would need some advice on how to choose a university or maybe access your chances of getting financial aid so let me know if you're interested and the link would be below please feel free to book a consultation with me Don't forget to subscribe Please share this video on your social networks I'd really appreciate it I'd really appreciate your likes I hope to see you in the next videos



During most of Uruguay's history, predominated the only university in the country at the time, the University of the Republic, whose founding process began in 1833 with the bill of the priest Damaso Antonio Larrañaga, the Oribe's decree of May 27, 1838 and the decree of 1849 that founded the Udelar.[2] In the same century, through executive decree of January 26, 1876, was authorized with legal effects as university courses, that imparted by the Liceo de Estudios Universitarios, thereby becoming in 1878 as Universidad Libre, later named Universidad Católica. This institution was closed in 1886 due to financial problems and legal issues.[2][3] After this, the Uruguayan university history would be that of the University of the Republic.

At the end of the Civic-military dictatorship of Uruguay in 1984, the Executive branch passed Decree 343/984 in which the operation of the Universidad Católica del Uruguay was authorized (being this its refounding), and here began a shift "from a one-university system to a system of universities", in which coexist both public and private universities.[2][4] Subsequently, Decree-Law 15,661 [a] of October 29, 1984 validates university degrees issued by private universities with the same legal effects as those issued by the University of the Republic, which have been approved by the Executive and registered to Ministry of Education and Culture.[5] These Decree-Law and Decree mentioned above (as were issued by unconstitutional organs) were validated by the Law of validity of acts of the military dictatorship government.[6] In 1995, proceedings by which institutions can access the official recognition were established, through Executive Decree 308/995.[7] This last regulatory decree was abrogated by Decree 104/014, which becomes the regulatory of the aforementioned Decree-Law.[1]
