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

Type of housing: With a family
Arranged by: Home university
If returning, I would choose: I would live in an apartment with spanish students
Why? This would give me the optimum opportunity to speak spanish as well as become familiar with students my age in a different country. I enjoyed my time where I lived but I told myself while I was still there that if I came back that is what I would do.
Personal comments:
I was pleased overall with the accommodations.

Activities, Nightlife: Takes place both within and outside of the university/student environment
Personal comments:
I liked hanging out with a close group of friends. Things people did were go out (always things to do in spots behind the Cathedral). Also, hanging out in the bars on calle Betis that goes down the river. There is always something to do because people are always out in the streets.

Interaction with local students
Course recommendations:
Make sure you do some studying in addition to having fun. I think that most of what I learned was outside of the classroom, but the grades you get might count into your GPA. In any case, they'll show on your transcript.

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:
Well, there weren't places above to mark my real ability. I went to Spain with very good Spanish reading and writing skills and mediocre speaking skills. When I left, my Spanish skills as a whole were sharpened, and now I feel very comfortable speaking Spanish in any situation, although I can't say that I'm able to understand all slang.

I wish I had known...
I wanted to have known that it would be so tuff to learn the exams in Spanish. My Spanish is basic to good and even for students with good Spanish language skills it is really hard to pass their exams. For fluent speaking students is already easier to read the study books and to get everything in the class. For me this was really a problem. Reading the study books in Spanish was really hard for me. It took me a really long time and in comparison with your exams in the home country you have to put like 4 times as more time and effort in the exams to pass them. You learn a lot from studying in Spanish and my vocabulary is bigger now but I find it tuff to really study in Spanish. Further one I do not have anything I wanted to know before hand. I rather want to find everything out myself and experience new things.
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:
The university has to spend more time on the personal being of the student. There are a lot of students went home because they did not get any information about the school and how everything goes around here and did not meet other students because they did not knew anything about parties or trips. I would recommend them to have in the first week an introduction week and in this way the international students can get to know each other and the city. These introduction periods have to arrange by the Spanish students so that the international students straight away get to know some Spanish students and in this way get to know the culture and the city better. In my home university we have a introduction like this and all international students really liked it. I hope next year the University of Sevilla will also pay more attention to this.
