Studying and living abroad in Costa Rica is an exciting and rewarding experience.
Coming here will be invaluable to your professional and academic future, especially because you will have chosen to study in a developing country. Costa Rica is in Central America, a region that faces major challenges for sustainable human development, democracy, and human rights.

 

Take advantage of the many academic and cultural opportunities that await you here in Costa Rica and at ICDS!  These opportunities serve as starting points for any number of future majors, jobs, careers, and life-long passions, as has been the case for many of our former students.
