DuocUC was founded in 1968 under the name “Worker Peasant University Department” in order to give free education to students from lower social backgrounds. Today, DuocUC has 17 campuses and almost 100,000 students. Located in Chile’s bustling, cosmopolitan capital city, Santiago, DuocUC offers students the opportunity to study tourism and hospitality in a world-class destination.


Santiago, Chile.

Santiago is a modern city, with more than 6 million inhabitants, and it is the center of most of Chile’s cultural, economic, industrial, and business activities. You can be skiing in one of its famous winter resorts or surfing on one of its internationally known beaches - all within about an hour.
