Orientation Week

The International Relations Office (Dirección de Relaciones Internacionales, DRI), through its Programa Internacional de Intercambio Estudiantil (PIIE) welcomes international students with an Orientation Week (Semana de Orientación).

This week is an important moment for our new incomings, as it allows them to obtain useful and relevant information that will guide them through various and diverse aspects of their future student life at PUCV, in Viña del Mar/Valparaíso and in Chile.

The following activities take place during the orientation week:

· Immigration procedures and administrative formalities

· Academic Orientation

· Spanish placement test (Written Test & Interview)

· Homestay & Independent Housing Workshop

· Safety and Security Workshops

· Extra Academic Activities Workshop

· Advising meeting
