Usually, all courses are taught in Spanish. In cases where courses are taught in English, explicit reference is made.

The number of participants per course is limited. We recommend making early applications. It is possible to attend a course in the morning and an afternoon course in each session. In any case, applicants must pay special attention to the tasks and exercises required outside of class time. It is also important to pay attention to the "course requirements" before applying, which are clearly expressed in the descriptions of each course.

Students can refresh their mathematical knowledge in an intensive course, "Mathematics for Social Sciences", which is offered free of charge to all participants of the Winter School. It is not possible to attend the math course without participation in at least one other course of the School.

Important (for credit revalidation): Those students who are interested in obtaining a diploma of course approval must take an external examination that will be evaluated by the respective instructors after the end of the Winter School. To request this option, students must first communicate with the School (eim@ucu.edu.uy) prior to the beginning of the course.

The School does not provide accommodation or travel aid. Travels to the city of Montevideo, as well as accommodation are the responsibility of each participant. In addition to the courses, the School organizes academic and recreational activities during and at the end of the school days. The dynamic combines seminars in research topics of special interest with spaces for recreation to enjoy the cultural life of the city of Montevideo.
