Closely linked to the history of Seville and Andalusia, the University of Seville combines the values of tradition with being an innovative institution of quality and excellence. It is a university as cutting edge and cosmopolitan as the city of Seville itself.
The University of Sevilla offers two types of courses:
"The Hispanic Studies Program" is designed for students wishing to spend a semester or a year abroad while continuing their undergraduate degree. While it offers advanced courses in Spanish, it also caters to the needs of those with little or no background in Spanish by offering classes taught in English in many subject areas. Hispanic Studies Program course offerings: See the courses.
EUSA Study Abroad Program options include Semester or Year studies in any of the regular courses offered in oficial EUSA degrees. These courses are open to local students and may be offered in either English, Spanish or both. Their Study Abroad offer includes over 30 different subject areas in Spanish and English, ranging from Media Studies, Business and Human Resources to Cultural Studies, Language or History. See the courses. And their official undergraduate degrees include:
The most common type of accommodation for a full Spanish language and culture immersion is staying with a host family.
The program offers full room and board, which includes three meals a day. The family also takes care of the laundry.
The first day they show the students their way to our school, and everything the student may need to know to get around easily, for example, public transportation and so on.
Living with a family allows the students to get to know the Spanish culture and people deeply, indeed we believe this to be an important aspect of the program. The program staff chooses the families carefully and continuous contact is maintained with them.
The family helps the students get to know Spain better and integrate them into Spanish culture through eating, speaking and living together.
We consider the participation of the families to be one of the most essential parts of the program that supports the safety and well being of the student.
All of the university programs have an 8 day orientation upon arrival to Seville.
The Program that lasts a Full Academic Year has orientation during the month of September.
The most difficult part of the experience for students is right after arrival. Everything is new and many experience jet lag, but the orientation gives students vital information about adapting to life in Spain, the university system, the program, schedule, safety, activities, volunteer and internship opportunities, and meeting and getting to know Spanish students.
Orientation also includes 48 hours of class about the Spanish language, grammar, conversation, and Spanish literature and culture.
At the end of orientation students who pass the evaluation exam may receive 3 credit hours from their university.
