The University of Wisconsin-Madison's academic program in Lima, Peru allows students the opportunity to directly enroll in courses at the Pontificia Universidad Catolica del Peru (PUCP). This program allows students to improve their Spanish language skills while learning about Peruvian culture. Students will take classes offered at PUCP and study alongside Peruvian and other international students. Students on this program should be prepared for an independent experience at PUCP. There is not a UW Madison staff member on site; however PUCP's International Office offers support to all international students, including an orientation upon arrival.

Lima is located on the western coastline of Peru and is the capital city with a population of around eight million inhabitants, making it the fifth largest city in Latin America. The historic center of Lima was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1988 due to the large number of historical buildings dating from the Spanish Colonial era. Most notable are the Plaza Mayor with its 16th Century Cathedral and the Presidential Palace and the Catacombs of the Convento de San Francisco. The city also has a large number of fine museums such as the Museum of Anthropology and the Gold Museum.
