Is the Universidad de las Americas the worst University of Chile? A. depends on whom ask you. Some students are happy with what they get, but for some that is only because they have no point of comparison. It is correct that there are teachers who make classes at the University of the Americas and other prestigious universities (like the University of Chile), but many claim that a) do classes there by money and not by vocation and b) anyway the quality of students is so low that they do not learn absolutely nothing. While one must accept that the model of higher education in Chile is based on the free market, we know that that market is absolutely incapable of regulating itself, and in this case specific note too. There are many documented academic shortcomings, complaints to SERNAC, demands of students and massive criticism of the University of the Americas, which simply seems incapable of sorting its structure and try to offer an education plan, if not first, at least decent standard.
