logo =The University of Buenos Aires (in Spanish: Universidad de Buenos Aires - (UBA)) is the largest
universityin Argentina, founded on August 12 1821in the city of Buenos Aires. It consists of 13 faculties, six hospitals, 10 museums and is linked to three high schools: Colegio Nacional de Buenos Aires, Escuela Superior de Comercio Carlos Pellegrini, and Instituto Libre de Segunda Enseñanza.
To enter any of the available programmes of study in the university, students who have successfully completed high school must pass a first year called "CBC", which stands for "Ciclo Básico Común" (Common Basic Cycle). Only upon completion of this first year may the student enter the chosen faculty; until then, they must attend courses in different buildings, and have up to 3 years to finish the 6 subjects (which vary depending on the programme of study chosen) assigned in two groups of 3. Each subject is of one semester duration (March-July or August-November). If someone passes all 6 subjects in their respective semesters, the CBC will take only one year. Potential students of economics, instead, take a 2-year common cycle, the "CBG" (General Basic Cycle), comprising 12 subjects.
The UBA is very large, and has no central
campus. A centralized "Ciudad Universitaria" ("university city") was started in the 1960s, but contains only two schools, with the others at different locations in Buenos Aires.
The access to the university is free of charge for everyone, including foreigners.
It is the best ranked Argentine University in
College and university rankings, present at number 276 of the Top Universities 2006 [ [http://www.topuniversities.com/ Top Universities] ] and at number 151-202 of the 2007 Shanghai Jiao Tong Universityranking [ [http://ed.sjtu.edu.cn/rank/2007/ARWU2007_102-202.htm SJTU rankings 2007] ] .
