4.24 / 5 based on 438 reviews.
Description:
El embrión de la actual Universidad de Sevilla fue el Colegio de Santa María de Jesús, fundado por el Arcediano Maese Rodrigo Fernández de Santaella en las postrimerías del s. XV. Ya en el siglo XVI (1505), una bula del Papa Julio II otorga al Colegio la facultad de conferir grados en Teología, Filosofía, Derecho, Medicina y Artes; y en 1551 el propio Concejo de la ciudad traspasa a la fundación de Maese Rodrigo, la Real provisión que concedía un Estudio General, por lo que aquélla pasó a ser oficialmente la Universidad, gozando de todos los privilegios de las demás Universidades del Reino.

Space
Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Independently - I had no other choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why? My apartment was located in the Pedro Salvador neighborhood near the Betis Stadium. The commute to the Rectorado on Avenida de San Fernando was about 30 minutes by bus (#33). I would have preferred to stay closer to the university (at walking distance), perhaps in Triana, Los Remedios, or in the Santa Cruz neighborhood.
Personal comments:
The apartment itself was fine. I shared a 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom space with 3 other university students.

Travel
Overall
Describe host city: Students interact with the local community without much university involvement
Nightlife, Travel: Takes place mostly outside the university/student environment
Activities: Takes place both within and outside of the university/student environment
Personal comments:
Best place for lunch is Taberna Los Coloniales, Plaza San Pedro, great food great atomsphere, very cheap. The best spot breakfast in Seville, and possibly Europe (excluding France who have breakfast monopolised) is Taberna de los Terceros, Plaza de los Terceros, Tostada con tomate y aceite, genial. Both of these are near the Plaza de la Encarnacion which is the best area to live in.

Language of instruction: Spanish
Was learning Spanish a key decision factor?
Yes, I wanted to improve my Spanish
How much did you improve your Spanish?
My level before: At ease in most situations
My level after: No problems in any areas (including slang)
Personal comments:
Be warned: the Sevillan dialect is NOT easy to understand, BUT after a while you get used to it. The only way to really improve your Spanish is to get to know locals. It's not very easy, but just go to the Feria de Abril, a little chat here and there and there you go! I have some good friends in Sevilla now. People there are usually very friendly and willing to talk to strangers (that is, if you are interested yourself, and don't act like a complete tourist).

Stay away from "home food" it is a better cultural experience and cheaper to stave away from imported food establishments. ie. McDonalds, Pans & Co., Pizza Hut, etc...

I wish I had known...
To bring slippers. It is pretty tough to break a 20 Euro bill. Coins are much more useful, but HEAVY.
In my opinion:
I loved it but I'm not sure everybody would.



During my experience abroad, I ...
Became familiar with another culture
KEY:
Happened all the time.
Happened quite a lot.
Happened a bit.
Didn't happen.
Traveled
Improved language skills
Met people from other countries
Became more independent
Partied a lot
Experienced a change in life
Advanced my studies/career
Personal recommendation:
Take lots of notes. If you miss a class, get those notes from someone else. All the exams are about testing how much you have memorized from the lectures and are able to spit back.



FINAL COMMENTS

Get a Bono Bus card, use Eurovoice to call home, get a cell phone with Vodafone, beware of pick-pockets, walk on the opposite side of the street from the cathedral to avoid being hussled, and don't walk around alone at night esp. in Santa Cruz and around the Torre de Oro.
