College and Universities in Quito


There is a greater variety of universities. The two universities that offer more services for foreign students are the University San Francisco of Quito, USFQ (Cumbaya) and the Catholic University of Ecuador or PUCE (12th of October and Patria).

To register, foreign citizens need the appropriate visa, secondary school certificate and employment certificate.

The study length of each career varies in each university. Inquire ahead of time about the time of studies.

For this program it is required to have an approved 2 years of studies in any faculty or university, knowledge in Spanish and English and completed 24 credits designated by the program.
