La PUCP offers a wide variety of classes in many fields.  Some of these fields are: architecture, art, sciences, law, social sciences, economics, education, communication, humanities, engineering, psychology and theology.   Exchange students are allowed to take any course that they can handle based on their academic backgrounds.  Click here for a complete list of facultades and course offerings at PUCP.  Like OU, PUCP has an extensive course catalog, but not every course listed will be offered every semester.  There are also Spanish language courses offered to international students for an additional cost to be paid once at PUCP.  For more information, please click here as well as ask your study abroad adviser for a copy of language course syllabi.

Money Matters

Since this program is a University Exchange program you will pay OU tuition/fees and insurance to your OU Bursar. Housing/meals/immigration documents will be paid to your host country.

There are number of scholarships available for study abroad students. Below is a partial list to get you started!


Living with a host family is the best option for OU students.  The families are screened and selected by the host university international office.  Students interested in other lodging arrangements will be handled on a case by case situation, but approval is rarely given for independent apartment living.
