Semester Exchange or Internship in Colombia

When you are going abroad to Colombia it could either be for a semester exchange at a university or an internship at a company.

The capital city of Colombia, Bogota is home to the renowned Universidad Nacional de Colombia. Our student house Casa Residencia is located in a lively neighborhood and within a reasonable distance from this university.

There are different universities spread throughout Medellin, for example Universidad EAFIT in the south, and Pontifical Bolivarian University in the center.

Therefore it’s important that you use the city map below with the houses pinpointed in red, so you can live close to your university.
For an internship you are likely to be working in Poblado, located in the south of Medellin. It is also where EAFIT university is located, and this is the safest area where you will find most businesses as well as the touristic places and the nightlife. If the idea of living in this area sounds good to you, reserve your spot in Casa Poblado Alto, Casa Poblado, or Casa Aguacatala.

Students living in Colombia

Colombia is mostly known as the country that used to be dominated by Pablo Escobar’s cartel, while there’s actually a lot more to it. Although the country used to be not so student friendly is now welcoming more and more international students.

The locals are very proud to see foreigners visiting their country. It’s a sign of progress. Especially Medellin has evolved over the years and was recently named the most innovative city in the world, beating cities like New York and Tel Aviv. This attracts more companies and universities to be looking for international students for an internship or a semester exchange. New international student houses are designed and build with more and more rooms to rent out to accommodate foreign and local students. We have personally selected and visited the student houses in Colombia to provide you with high-quality houses for a reasonable price, friendly landlord and on a central location close to universities.

Rent an international student room

Renting a student room in Colombia does not have to be expensive. If you would like to live in the safest neighborhoods such as Poblado or Laureles in Medellin and Zona Rosa or Chapinero in Bogota you will pay a little more for your student accommodation. For €175 you will have a decent room with double bed and a shared bathroom. If you would like to have your own bathroom and the largest room in the house you should expect to pay a monthly rent of around €280.

Your total cost of living in Colombia will be lower than you are used to. A general benchmark used for the costs is that it’s around three times cheaper than the USA and Europe. So does a local beer in the supermarket cost around €0,78 for 0,5 liter and a monthly ticket for the public transport €33. This is perfect for when you’re going to live abroad in Colombia since you will be able to tick off more things on your bucketlist.
