Say hello to the mamas
When the Four Mamas founded API together more than 20 years ago, they dreamed of creating high-quality, safe, life-changing study abroad programs they would feel good sending their own kids on. With dedication, hard work, and a lot of love, their dream became reality. Thousands and thousands of students have chosen API to support them on their own life-changing study abroad experiences, with the Four Mamas cheering them on every step of the way. No matter who you are or where you come from, API will support you on your journey.

Study Abroad + Options
Built on the land of two former estates, the city of Viña del Mar, Chile began in the late 1800s and has grown to become a popular destination for Chileans, Argentines and other tourists from around the world. Often called the “Garden City”, it was once known primarily for its beautiful beaches. Viña del Mar is also known as a university town. It is a safe and relaxed city where visiting students can study Spanish language and Chilean culture.
API offers students the opportunity to study abroad in Viña del Mar at the Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez (UAI). UAI is a private university that was founded in 1988, building upon the academic tradition started by the Escuela de Negocios de Valparaíso in 1953. Enrolling approximately 9,000 undergraduate and graduate students, it offers degrees in business, the liberal arts and humanities, engineering, law and the social sciences. The university offers courses designed for international students in both Spanish and English, as well as options to directly enroll in courses with local Chilean students. Students will enjoy the UAI campus in Viña del Mar with its extensive amenities and impressive modern architecture.
“I never felt alone in Chile and that was a result of API giving us the right tool sand leading us in the right direction."
API students in Viña del Mar have the opportunity to give back to their local community through various volunteer projects, including volunteering at youth non-profit organizations, working with young children, helping out at homeless shelters, contribute to environmental projects, and participating in mural painting and city beautification projects.
