The University of Buenos Aires (Spanish: Universidad de Buenos Aires, UBA) is a public research university in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Established in 1821, it is the premier institution of higher learning in the country and one of the most prestigious universities in the region.[5][6][7][8] It has educated 17 Argentine presidents, produced four of the country's five Nobel Prize laureates, and is responsible for approximately 40% of the country's research output.[9][10][11] The QS World University Rankings currently places the UBA at number 66 in the world.[12]

The university's academic strength and regional leadership make it attractive to many international students, especially at the postgraduate level.[13][14] Just over 4 percent of undergraduates are foreigners, while 15 percent of postgraduate students come from abroad.[15] The Faculty of Economic Sciences has the highest rate of international postgraduate students at 30 percent, in line with its reputation as a "top business school with significant international influence."[16][17]

The University of Buenos Aires enrolls more than 328,000 students and is organized into 13 independent faculties.[18][19] It administers 6 hospitals,[20] 16 museums,[21] 13 scientific institutes,[22] 6 interdisciplinary commissions,[23] 5 high schools,[24] the Ricardo Rojas Cultural Center,[25] the Cosmos Cinema,[26] the University of Buenos Aires Symphony Orchestra,[27] and Eudeba (Editorial Universitaria de Buenos Aires), the country's largest university press.[28]

Undergraduate programs at the University of Buenos Aires are free of charge for everyone, regardless of nationality.[29] Tuition from postgraduate programs helps fund the UBA's social mission to provide free university education for all.[30]

Common Basic Cycle

Entry to any of the available programs of study in the university is open to anyone with a secondary school diploma; in most cases, students who have successfully completed high school must pass a first year called CBC, which stands for Common Basic Cycle (Ciclo Básico Común). This program was designed to ensure a standardized academic background for all students seeking undergraduate degrees at the UBA.[31]

The CBC consists of 6 or 7 subjects (which vary depending on the chosen faculty's program of study), each having a duration of one semester (March–July or August–November), and are often taken in groups of 3 or 4 subjects per semester. Thus, it's possible for the Cycle to take only one year, though students are given up to three years to finish it. Potential students of economics, instead, take a 2-year common cycle, the "CBG" (General Basic Cycle), comprising 12 subjects.

Only upon completion may the student enter the chosen faculty; until then, they must attend courses in different buildings depending on where they are available.

The faculties that comprise the university are:

Of these, only the buildings of the last two are located in the centralized Ciudad Universitaria (University City), a building complex in Núñez, in northern Buenos Aires along the banks of the Río de la Plata. The other faculties are scattered around the city and the Greater Buenos Aires area in buildings and complexes of various sizes.

The Faculty of Economic Sciences is the largest of the UBA's constituent colleges, with over 36,000 students.[32] In recent years, the Faculty of Medicine has attracted the most new students, with 17,004 new enrollees in 2018 compared to the 7,584 new students the Faculty of Economic Sciences added that same year.[33]

In addition to these 13 faculty and the CBC, the UBA also administers 5 high schools: Colegio Nacional de Buenos Aires, Escuela Superior de Comercio Carlos Pellegrini, Instituto Libre de Segunda Enseñanza, Escuela de Educación Técnica Profesional en Producción Agropecuaria y Agroalimentaria, and Escuela de Educación Técnica de Villa Lugano.[34] Omar Acha teaches Philosophy of History at the UBA.
