One of the most prestigious higher education institutions in Mexico – Universidad de las Américas Puebla (UDLAP) – is located in Cholula, the oldest city in Latin America, whose magic is the result of a combination of art, culture, history, traditions, and modernity. UDLAP is only a two-hour drive from Mexico City, one of the most cosmopolitan and populated cities in the world, and 20 minutes from Puebla, a UNESCO world heritage city. Given its excellent geographic location, close to beaches, forests, and archeological centers, there are cultural, artistic, and recreational activities that enhance a student´s university experience.
UDLAP’s history begins with the Mexico City College, which was founded in 1940, laying the foundations for an international university. Now, with over 75 years of experience, it has become an excellent academic institution with over 70 licenciatura and graduate study programs in diverse areas. It offers a multicultural experience to its students, including the 55 nationalities represented on campus due to its exchange agreements with close to 40 countries.
Students from UDLAP receive a well-rounded education in which academic quality is guaranteed by a faculty – 99% of whom have graduate degrees – that has ample knowledge and experience. UDLAP’s faculty also devote time for research and artistic creation, and one of every three full time professors belongs to Mexico’s National Research System.
UDLAP has only one campus that guarantees academic excellence and offers an integral experience to its students. The labs, library, computer rooms, and classrooms have the latest technology, allowing students to transform their theoretical knowledge into practice, thus strengthening their abilities and competencies.
