A US university has released a new course on the internet to help students find out more about how US campuses are run and how to improve the way they do business.
The course, titled How to Find and Read a Book, is aimed at students who want to better understand how US universities are run.
The new course, which is being offered by the American University of Lima (AU) campus in Lima, Peru, is the first of its kind in Latin America.
“The American University campus in Peru has become a hub of learning and research, and a place where students can learn about topics such as social justice, global issues and the history of the university,” a university spokesperson told BBC News.
The online course is free and the university has set up a website for students to take part in.
“We are excited to see students learn about the US academic system through the eyes of an American,” said the university’s president, Roberto Marcelino.
The University of Peru is a university of the US, with a population of nearly 9 million people.
The university has been at the centre of an ongoing debate over university funding, with students protesting against the cost of tuition.
Students have also criticised the way in which US universities operate.
In October, US President Donald Trump called on universities to cut costs by reducing the number of students and faculty they admit, in response to a petition that was signed by more than 15,000 students.
A month later, Trump announced a plan to cut federal funding for US universities.
