In total, we recommend that semester students budget a minimum of about $1,000 per month for expenses in Seville. Though lodging, all meals, laundry, and study tours are included in the program fees, students will want to have extra spending money for going out with friends, making weekend trips on their own, or buying gifts to take back home.
