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. De los Estatutos de 1621 se desprende... Read more

Go study abroad for an academic year. 3-4 months is not enough time to get acculturated to your new environment. Once you do become more accostomed to living in another country and culture, it's time for you to leave. A year, while it may seem like a long time, is a more worthwhile investment for you and your growth. Read Review

Type of housing: Apartment/House
Arranged by: Independently - My choice
If returning, I would choose: Apartment/House
Why? An apartment or a house give you the most freedom!
Personal comments:
I had a great apartment, everything quite new and clean. Maybe the landlord could have been better, and there was also a lot of noise (I was in Calle Recaredo, a street with very much traffic and... AMBULANCES!), but it was only 5 to 10 minutes away from the centre, and just very nice to live in.

Fantastic.
Pretty good.
Could've been a bit better.
Disappointing.
Variety of courses
Availability/access to resources

Course recommendations:
take classes for foreigners and classes with spaniards. it makes all the difference to have them both and stay the whole year. its not worth it to stay one semester

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: Everyday knowledge (shopping, directions, etc.)
My level after: No problems in any areas (including slang)
Personal comments:
I had studied Spanish in high school and college but was not sufficiently prepared to live in a Spanish-speaking country. When I arrived, I struggled for 3 months to understand people and muster the courage to speak. After that, it was much easier to learn the language and take the risk of speaking to people, despite making some mistakes. Taking classes in Spanish and living with Spaniards enabled me to become fluent in the language.

Open an accout as soon as you arrive to avoid transfer charges from home. Bring money from home in cash or traveler's cheques as this also avoids charges. Always ask about possible charges, there are much more banking charges there than here.

Be prepared to buy your books at local bookstores. When I was there, there wasn't a "bookstore" on campus. Enjoy the cafe that's in the University. Great cafe con leche, tea, and snacks!!!!



FINAL COMMENTS

Have fun. The feeling of homesickness does go away. I'd definitely recommend staying a whole year. Make sure you have experiences of eating real Spanish food. That's something I missed out on a bit moving into an apartment. Luckily, one of my friends lived w/someone who was glad to have guests.....a few of us went over there for a full multi-course Spanish lunch quite a few times. When I was traveling over the Winter break, and bought souvenirs, I found it was helpful to mail some stuff directly home to the States from where I was (Athens).
