Updated date: 16/02/2023

The Distance Education Service (SEAD) provides Elementary and Media Education to those students who are temporarily living abroad. In this way, they are given the opportunity to continue practicing the national language, maintain the feeling of belonging to their country of origin and facilitate their reincorporation into the Argentine Educational System.

The SEAD is aimed at Argentine students or children of Argentine students living abroad. This modality is not available for those students who live in Argentina.

It is mandatory that students also attend an educational establishment in the place of temporary residence, as established by the National Education Law No. 26,206 for children under 18 years of age.

The academic proposal includes the same subjects and contents corresponding to the Common Education System.

At the end of the school year, the SEAD grants the student a certificate of approval for the year or period completed. The certificate granted by the SEAD has the same validity as those granted by the educational institutions of the different jurisdictions of the country

Upon returning to the country, students return to the year they were studying or to the next higher year if they have completed the course.

The Media school diploma awarded by SEAD is a Bachelor's Degree with a focus on Social Sciences and Humanities and is valid nationwide.
