The University of Buenos Aires (Spanish: Universidad de Buenos Aires, UBA) is the largest university in Argentina and the second largest university by enrollment in Latin America. Founded on August 12, 1821 in the city of Buenos Aires, it consists of 13 departments, 6 hospitals, 10 museums and is linked to 4 high schools: Colegio Nacional de Buenos Aires, Escuela Superior de Comercio Carlos Pellegrini, Instituto Libre de Segunda Enseñanza and Escuela de Educación Técnica Profesional en Producción Agropecuaria y Agroalimentaria.

Entry to any of the available programmes of study in the university is open to anyone with a secondary school degree; in most cases, students who have successfully completed high school must pass a first year called CBC, which stands for Ciclo Básico Común (Common Basic Cycle). Only upon completion of this first year may the student enter the chosen school; until then, they must attend courses in different buildings, and have up to 3 years to finish the 6 or 7 subjects (which vary depending on the programme of study chosen) assigned in two groups of 3 or 4. Each subject is of one semester duration (March–July or August–November). If someone passes all 6 subjects in their respective semester, the CBC will take only one year. Potential students of economics, instead, take a 2-year common cycle, the "CBG" (General Basic Cycle), comprising 12 subjects.

The UBA has no central campus. A centralized Ciudad Universitaria (literally, "university city") was started in the 1960s, but contains only two schools, with the others at different locations in Buenos Aires.

Access to the university is free of charge for everyone, including foreigners. However, the postgraduate programs charge tuition fees that can be covered with research scholarships for those students with outstanding academic performance.

The university has produced four Nobel Prize laureates, one of the most prolific institutions in the Spanish-speaking world. It is currently the best ranked Argentine university in college and university rankings, present at number 197 of the Top Universities 2008 and at number 151-200 of the 2010 Shanghai Jiao Tong University ranking. According to the 2010 University Ranking by Academic Performance (URAP), the university is the best in Argentina and the 247th in the world, and, according to TopUniversities, it is the 46th best university in the world taking into account employer reputation.

González also integrated many municipal scientific institutions into the university, and a year later he became the first President of the National University of La Plata.

Buenos Aires

The Pontifical Catholic University of Argentina, whose full name in Spanish is Pontificia Universidad Católica Argentina "Santa María de los Buenos Aires", also known as Universidad Católica Argentina (UCA), is a university in Argentina with campuses in the cities of Buenos Aires, Santa Fe, Rosario, Paraná, Mendoza and Pergamino. The main campus is located in Puerto Madero, one of the most modern neighborhoods of Buenos Aires.

It is considered, according to a 2011 study by the Spanish Ministry of Education as one of the best private universities in Latin America. It is the second university preferred by Argentine employers and the sixth in all Latin America.

Its predecessor, the Catholic University of Buenos Aires (1910–1922) was founded by the Argentine episcopate in 1910, but their degrees, in law, were not recognized by the Argentine government, and the institution was closed in 1922.

In 1955, Decree 6403 concerning the freedom of education enabled the creation of private universities with the authority to deliver academic qualifications. In 1956 the bishops decided to create the Catholic University of Argentina, formally founded on March 7, 1958.

Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio was UCA's Grand Chancellor, by virtue of his office as Primate of Argentina and Metropolitan Archbishop of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina, until his election in 2013 as Pope Francis to succeed Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI. When Mario Aurelio Poli was named Archbishop of Buenos Aires by Pope Francis later in 2013, he became Grand Chancellor of the University. In May 2013 Pope Francis named Victor Manuel Fernández, the University's President (the second-highest administrative rank, after the Grand Chancellor), as titular archbishop of Tiburnia.

Universidad Adventista del Plata or UAP (English: Adventist University of the Plata) is a private Christian coeducational university in Libertador San Martín, Entre Ríos, Argentina, founded in 1898.

The University began as a small rural training school which later became known as Colegio Adventista del Plata (Adventist School of the Plata). After receiving the CONEAU accreditation in the 1990s and the signing of the decree of President Eduardo Duhalde in 2002, it became the Universidad Adventista del Plata. In 1994, its Medicine School was founded.

The Adventist University of the Plata is a part of the Seventh-day Adventist education system, the world's second largest Christian school system. Academic activities take place on a campus covering 18 hectares. It operates from March to December.

The building structure ensures the quality of a personalised education, with laboratories, classrooms, multimedia service and conference rooms that are used both during class and in the summer and postgraduate courses. The University has a large library that includes more than 60,000 volumes, plus direct access to the Internet, periodicals and an exchange system with significant national and foreign universities. In the same building is the Centre for Educational Technology for Self-learning, equipped for research work and information, plus an auditorium that can seat 200 guests and the Ellen White Research Center.

The educational task is reinforced with an infrastructure designed to assist in the educational process, which also provides for the physical development of students. The sports complex includes a tennis court, beach volleyball, a swimming pool and an indoor gymnasium in which organised recreational activities are carried out. The institution also has an FM transmitter, a television centre and recording studios, which enrich the activities of the Communication Department.

Enrolment for the year 2009 totalled 2530 students. Since the Argentine economic crisis (1999–2002) the number of foreign students has increased dramatically due to the devaluation of the Argentine peso, making UAP one of the most culturally diverse universities in South America.
