Can I independently enroll in classes at the University of Havana?

Question: I am a US student interested in enrolling 2 or 3 classes at UH. Is this something I can do independently of an organized abroad program? If so, how might I go about doing this? I am having a difficult time finding any information on how to enroll. Thank you!

Answer: After some looking around it seems the best bet will be starting with UniversiTUR SA, a state company that coordinates independent study for foreign students.  Phone in Havana is (53 from outside Cuba) 7261-4939, agencia@universitur.com.  Calle 30 No. 786 between Calle 41 y Ave Kohly.

Other options would be to look for programs at individual Cuban Universities.  The CUJAE (a comp. science and engineering univ.) and Santa Clara University Marta Abreu are good places to start.

  • You will have to wait when diplomatic relations are established. I just met a group of 12 US students enrolled in UH courses. The problem is if you don’t follow US rule you will not be credited for the courses…the problem is our government, not Cuba.
