UNIVERSIDAD DE CHILE

Secretaría de Estudios

This is university letterhead. I am translating for students, and this terminology is hard to find.

For your peace of mind, I am not translating the university's name :))

Your valuable suggestions will be welcome.

Asker: Hola, Peter. It is not "secretaria" but "secretaría" - that would be secretariat, but my research has been useless. All hits for "Secretariat of Studies" are from non-English speaking countries :(

Academic Office/Secretariat


Explanation:
According to the reference I copied below, they do all sorts of things in this office, way beyond what they normally do in Student Affairs. Again, it's sort of a literal way to translate without being too literal.
