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.

Couldn't have asked for more.
Pretty good.
Could've been better, but didn't lessen the overall experience.
Disappointing.

Type of housing: With a family
Arranged by: Home university
If returning, I would choose: With a family
Why? I believe that my Spanish speaking skills improved vastly because of the interaction that I had on a daily basis with my family. The classroom learning focused more on listening and writing, but I feel that speaking is crucial as well. I also learned a great deal more about the culture and lifestyle of Spain by living with a family.

Describe host city: Students equally interact with the local and student community

Personal comments:
I enjoyed the Parque del Alamillo which was a beautiful wide open space park on the Isla de Cartuja with lovely walks. I also enjoyed a lovely little Italian restaurant called San Marco in the Santa Cruz region of the city. Then there is the obvious....the cathedral, Plaza de Espana and all the beautiful museums and architecture around the city.

My academic experiences
Quality of courses
KEY:
Fantastic.
Pretty good.
Could've been a bit better.
Disappointing.
Variety of courses
Availability/access to resources
Interaction with teachers
Interaction with other international students
Interaction with local students
Course recommendations:
The Spanish grade a lot differently than what I was used too. They are harder because the grading isn't a day to day thing because it is pretty much your final test that determines your grade.

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: At ease in most situations
Personal comments:
The most you learn from the spanish people, but there were a lot of foreigners which could speake very well, too.At the beginning it was very hard to understand the sevillians and even now itエs nearly impossible when they talk quickly. At the beginnig it was a little bit difficult to get to know native speakers, but when knew some it was great and I learned a lot of the life and the language

I wish I had known...
I wish I had known it would be so short :) Just enjoy it as good as you can. I'll never ever forget my staying there.
In my opinion:
Everybody loved it, you will too!



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:
Don't think it will be a lot easier than at home, because it isn't :) Most of the Spanish or Hispanic literature classes are of a high level. On the other hand, don't worry if you make some language mistakes, professors allow you to use a dictionnary, and you can impress them if you speak/write good.



FINAL COMMENTS

Visit Granada!! It really is a fantastic city, beautiful and alive! The Alhambra is the most beautiful building I have ever seen! Travel enough, but don't forget to explore Sevilla itself: it has so much to offer! Also, I repeat, really try to get to know local people, and definitely go to the Feria de Abril! You won't regret :)
