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.

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.”

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.

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 :)

Overall
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.

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.

Ryanair does cheap flights to Sevila or Malaga. Best piece of advice I could give is to really immerse yourself in the culture and make a big effort to be social and make friends. It will be daunting and often demoralising at first but there is so much to be gained from a year in seville, you don't want to end up regretting anything at the end of the year.
