Austral University of Chile

Master's Programmes



The Universidad Austral de Chile (UACh) was founded in Valdivia in 1954, mainly through the initiative of local citizens. It was created in response to the urgent need to establish an institute of higher education that was focused on local needs and interests, decentralizing knowledge, research, culture, and the arts in a way that was revolutionary in Chile at the time.


The unique attributes of the Universidad Austral de Chile have positioned it as one of the top five universities in Chile as well as 17th in all of Latin America according to the Times Higher Education rankings, which include the top 300 institutions of higher education in the region.
