The best of the University is the building, but not all of the faculties are in there.The way of studing is quite oldschool, they don´t support independence.

Seville is a very beautiful city and they have a very rich and special culture and history (Flamenco, Sevillana, Ferias, not only in Seville).Andalucia has beautyful beaches (Costa de la Luz: Bolonia,Caños de Meca), they have mountains,beautiful towns (Granada, Ronda, Cordoba, SEVILLA...) and villages.And last not least the Sevillians are very nice and they like to celebrate.And the Tapas....

Personally i would have gone to a more affluent city just because the poorness of Andalucia shows in the amount of educational resources availalbe for students. Otherwise its just as good as any other university.

I personally would have gone to a bigger city because the nightlife options get tiring quickly, there were too many americans, and there seems to be a lot of resentment on behalf of the citizens towards foreign students. I was harrassed numberous times by men and many guys were randomly assulted.

The city and the university are different things: one is magic, the other..

Overall
The university, especially the faculty of economics, offers a wide range of courses, in both the first and second semester. However, It's hard to find reliable information on many of them, so things can easily become complicated. Not all professors help you just because you are an Erasmus. Also, many of them ignore your needs. Not all the elective courses are easy to pass, as well as not all the mandatory ones are harder than the others. Generally speaking, I've never needed to study so much to pass an exam. I am still wondering why taking a degree at this faculty can be so tough. 

If you read all the reviews people have done here, you can easily note how many say these very same things. You have to study a lot, starting from day 1. Almost all the courses are made by one or more project works and a final written or oral exam. Classes are mandatory or give you the possibility to add some points to the final grade.

I recommend you to study here just in case you're staying one semester. The level of commitment required for the whole year can be so high as to produce undesirable worries.

Pros
The city is unique, the spaces of the faculties of viapol are confortable and well organized.
Cons
Many courses are tough, It's difficult to find precise information about that. The international office is a joke, they are totally unprepared and they usually make mistakes with documents or files.

Personal recommendation
Going to Seville is a chance of a lifetime I would recommend not missing. Seville is a beautiful city filled with lots of adventure and things to learn about. If you would like to get the feel of Spanish cultural, the city of Seville could be one of your best choices! Many people told me that the temperature year round was hot and to not worry about brining winter clothes. With that being true in the months of spring and summer, when first arriving in February and until March it rained almost every day and was very cold, almost reaching snow on some days. So make sure you come prepared for all seasons here in Seville!

My experience abroad has been a forgetful experience that has taught my more then I could have imagined. I can say that I have never learned so much in so little of a period of time. My classes abroad consist of small groups of people from all over the world, from Europe, Asia, Brazil to, and U.S in which we are constantly involved in an exchange of topics with mindsets from all over the world. Being a part of this exchange program I have been forced to step out of my comfort zone and express my thoughts and opinions in return learning so much about myself and others. I feel so lucky and fortunate to have been able to have this experience. I am earning full time college credits while greatly improving my Spanish language skills. Seville is a beloved city with many activities and things to do, which left me never bored or looking for something to do. Here in Seville, the people are very friendly and outgoing; within one week I have made a group of friends that will last for a lifetime. This study abroad experience I came to Seville as a tourist but after soaking up all of its culture has to offer I found out new things about myself I never even knew existed changing my image of a tourist, into a well known visitor, leaving nothing behind. It is with these experiences we find, that “ no matter who you are, or where you’re from, everybody has something to offer.”

Buena experiencia aunque no excelente

Education
Overall
Algunas asignaturas impartidas son muy interesantes y resultan básicas para la formación correcta del docente de manera que este pueda responder a una educación integral del alumno. Sin embargo, hay otras asignaturas que considero poco relevantes.

Me gusta mucho que todas las asignaturas tengan partes prácticas y partes teóricas ya que, a veces, tendemos a centrarnos demasiado en esta última parte pero luego no se sabe adecuar o aplicar correctamente. No obstante, algunas prácticas resultaban redundates, de poca utilidad o incluso aún demasiado teóricas. Con respecto a las prácticas profesionales, estas son más que necesarias y me alegra mucho que la oferten como una asignatura obligatoria en el tercer año de carrera, además de otro periódo de prácticas en el cuarto y último año relacionadas con la mención que vayas cursar (educación especial, física, musical o inglesa).

Por último y de acuerdo con temas administrativos, creo que la US deja mucho que mejorar.

Pros
Asignaturas interesantes y divididas en teórica y práctica a parte de la práctica profesional que se cursan en el 3° y 4° año

Relación amor-odio con el grado en Economía en la Universidad de Sevilla
Alexia S

Economics
Overall
Estudiar Economía en la Universidad de Sevilla ha sido todo un reto mental. Hay un espectro de asignaturas que van desde un contenido estrictamente teórico, como puede ser Economía Internacional a uno puramente matemático, como puede ser Econometría aplicada a programas informáticos o Estadística avanzada (mis favoritas).
El único fallo que le veo a mi universidad es que en las asignaturas que son un híbrido entre teoría y práctica solo se le presta atención a la teoría, como puede ser Economía de la UE o las macroeconomías. Es decir, me hubiera gustado que me pusieran casos reales para resolver problemas que han ido surgiendo en la UE como institución o aplicar desequilibrios macroeconómicos a efectos reales.
No obstante, creo que es la mejor carrera que he podido estudiar acorde con mis intereses y me ha aportado un infinitud de conocimientos que me han hecho que sea una persona mucho más culta y consciente de la realidad económica en la que vivimos, que la que era y tenía hace 4 años.

Pros
Fuente enorme de conocimientos.
Cons
Falta de un enfoque más centrado en el mundo laboral y no en el académico.
