Online Courses and Programs

COIL projects link scholars and students from different countries and cultures, perspectives, and experiences to engage in meaningful discipline-specific exchanges. 

If you are interested in pairing up with a UM scholar to run a COIL project, please contact:

The Universidad de Montevideo offers a selection of online courses for students enrolled at partner universities for the semester August-December 2021. Students will have the opportunity to follow online courses that award study credits, thus avoiding the necessity of traveling abroad due to the COVID situation.

Students may choose any courses if they meet the prerequisites for the course. The course list may be updated as new information about courses becomes available. The Universidad de Montevideo reserves the right to cancel or make changes to the program if the required minimum of participants is not reached.

Please check beforehand that your home university approves online courses completed at the UM and that you can transfer the credits back to your home university degree.
