Universidad Rafael Landivar was the 2nd LC to join the SCOPE family. It's a private university where people with great potential attend. Since it's not public, not many people have the capacity to attend to this university, but the ones who do tend to be very dedicated workers. Since your exchange will take place in the capital, you will find and coexist with members of other LCs too. https://www.url.edu.gt/PortalURL/Contenido.aspx?o=5824&s=3
The university is located in zone 16. It's a 15 to 30 minute drive to the hospital that is avaivable, which is:
- Hospital Roosevelth in zone 11, which is a public hospital
Must students who you'll be staying with are stundents who will go on a SCOPE exchange or have already went, so they'll try to provide you with all of the comodities they received or hope to receive, which include:
- Room cleaning
- Hot water
- Help with transportation
- Part of the social program
The host student will always provide you with, at the very least, one meal per day. Not pocket money will be given.
Same as boarding.
Since all the hospitals are in the city, the most common, and probably the safest, way of transportation is by car. Taking a cab (which would cost you about 4$) or going on a Transmetro (buses ran by the government, which would cost about 0.15$) are viable and safe options. Since they are all in the city, it shouldn't take long to get to your destination. To get to other parts of the country, you can go in minibuses with other tourists and natives for about 20$.
