Medellin Colombia Colleges and Universities
This week in
Medellin Universities are considered a center of educational excellence throughout Colombia and the rest of Latin America and many students seek to attend school here. Many degrees are transferable to other countries.
Many Medellin Universities offer undergraduate as well as Masters and PHD programs. In the Public Universities like the University of Antioquia, students pay according to their abilities and family incomes so no one with a desire to attend and meeting the minimum requirements is ever refused entrance.
It is possible for people as young as 15 to enter the public Universities if they have completed their "secondaria" education (equivalent of our HS graduation)
Most schools begin classes at 6:30 AM and extend until 10:00 PM Mon Sat.!
Students lining up to Register at Politechnico 6:30 AM!
