Program Description:

Instituto San Joaquin de Flores

Study in Costa Rica... A Whole New Adventure

The Instituto San Joaquin de Flores offers two types of study programs for students to Costa Rica.  There are semester and summer-long academic programs and short-term Spanish language courses for beginners on up.  The information that follows describes the Institute, the location, the programs and opportunities that the country affords for everyone.

The Institute is housed in a colonial-style building constructed specifically to be an academic facility and language school.  Its two-story structure houses classrooms, lounges and study spaces on each floor, as well as bathrooms and a pantry.  It has lovely gardens with orchids and other tropical plants, and two large mango trees.

All courses at the Institute are taught by faculty from the Universidad de Costa Rica (UCR) and the Universidad Nacional (UNA) de Costa Rica.
