About Tertiary Education in Bolivia

Universities offer courses of Bachelor’s, Master’s, and PhDs (Doctorado). There is a wide range of courses available. Usually, a Bachelor’s program will last between three to four years, a Master’s program between one to two, and a Ph.D. between two to four.

Courses like Medicine, Architecture, or Theology might be structured as Integrated Master’s, where the first both cycles are merged into a single program. There are also technical degrees, designed to allow students to start working sooner.

The academic year runs for two semesters from the middle of February until the beginning of July and from the end of July until the end of November. Institutions in Bolivia use the CLAR credit system, used by most of the Latin American countries, where every academic year is awarded 60 credits.

Contrary to the majority of other countries, getting into a private university here is easier than into a public university. This is because the entrance exams to public institutions are rather more difficult.

The application period begins on the 20th of January and ends on the 17th of February of every academic year. Apart from that, entrance to institutions of higher education is based on previous relevant academic qualifications and/or credits.

Below is a list of some top universities by rank that you may want to explore and select from;
