Mission

Our mission is to increase understanding – and thereby tolerance – between cultures by helping to form socially conscious and internationally aware university students. We fulfill our mission by offering higher education programs in an international setting to both Ecuadorian and international students that combine academic study, travel, intercultural and service learning.

Experience Ecuador: The world's most diverse country

Ecuador has it all: from snow-capped volcanoes to long sandy beaches; from bustling cities to rural communities; from indigenous tradition to modern convenience; from incredible natural riches to extreme poverty and inequality; from the Amazon Rainforest to the Galápagos Islands; you name it, this country has it. What's more, all of this is crammed into a tiny, accessible space. In other words, Ecuador is the ideal classroom; the perfect destination for students with a true interest in seeing and learning about the world. The study abroad and exchange programs offered by the Universidad Espiritu Santo (UEES) provide a unique mix of these elements, combined with a full academic component that includes Spanish language instruction, university courses delivered in both English and Spanish, and a large number of service learning opportunities.

Studies in english

A wide range of subjects at UEES are taught in English, enabling international students that do not have a high proficiency in Spanish to keep on track with their majors while also working on their language skills. While the largest selection of courses are in the areas of Business, Finance and Marketing, there is sufficient choice to enable students of most disciplines to take a full-time load for a semester or academic year....
