PeruĂş Peru is without a doubt one of the most attractive countries in Latin America. Its ecological and cultural diversity, the impressive variety of its landscapes, the cheerful character of its people and its historically rich cities and beautiful archaeological monuments, all combine to make of Peru a unique country in the world. Placed on the central western coast of South America, Peru offers an immense variety of landscapes and climates, result of the uniqueness of its geographical location. Historically Peruvian current territory has also been home to some of the richest pre-Columbian civilizations, characteristically complex societies that achieved extremely high levels of development in terms of their architecture, textiles, stock rearing, ceramics, gold and silver work, among other. The Pontificia Universidad CatĂłlica del PerĂş (PUCP) is a private, non-profit institution devoted to higher education. It was founded in 1917 and today we have a population of more than 24,000 students (in undergraduate, Master or Doctorate programs). We are among the twenty five most important universities in Latin America, and occupy the first position in Peru. The quality of our education is at the core of the university and our students, researchers and professors are the proof of it. At this moment, PUCP is the most international Higher Education Institution (HEI) in the country.
