Can I enroll in any public university here and get a degree for free?

Is that really true? So I could (if I were willing to spend the time/years) get a completely new degree in medicine, law, economics, math, Irish literature, whatever?

Yes. And if you are 25 or older, you don't even need to have finished high school.


... The link above applies for admissions to the The Universidad de Buenos Aires...Only?

meet the applicants, as well as to ensure the conditions of the
accreditation through relevant examinations. (in Spanish) ? Unquote...

Yes. You will need to pass a test and demonstrate work experience in a field related to the one you want to study. You also need to go through interviews, etc. Bare in mind that UBA has a mandatory 1 year course before you start taking classes towards your degree.

The link above does refer specifically to UBA, but it's based on the Ley de Educación Superior. You can read article 7 which refers to over 25 year-old's here.

True . However other Universities may have other Prerequisites and tests for admission..

Oh, yes, definitely. It's not like you can just sign up if you haven't finished high school. Still, the sole fact that you are able to attend, say, medical school without finishing high school already seems pretty lenient, requirements-wise.
