Universidad de Santiago’s new Law School draws high interest at Universities’ Fair

  • The 14th version of the SIAD Universities’ Fair, the most important professional and vocational guidance fair for high school students in the country, was successfully held last week.



Between October 05th and 07th, the SIAD 2016 Universities’ Fair was held at the Estación Mapocho Cultural Center. The activity gathered more than 48 thousand high school students and Universidad de Santiago de Chile was one of the institutions promoting its educational programs in the activity.

60% of the 3,900 new students at Universidad de Santiago are benefited from tuition-free education

  • Students with unemployed parents, students from low income households, single mothers or students who have to work to support their families: this is the situation of more than 2,300 youngsters who entered Universidad de Santiago this year, thanks to the tuition-free education program enacted by the Government. All of them have something in common: they had lost all hope of pursuing higher education.
