Program Information

Spanish Studies Abroad offers program options in Seville for those students that are on the Quarter/Trimester system. Students enroll in one intensive language course and gain valuable work experience pursuing an internship in the field of their choice. Internship opportunities allow you access to the work culture and daily life of local citizens, often hidden to students studying abroad, and to more fully integrate into the local culture. Language courses are taught at our Center, a historic mansion in downtown Seville, and includes numerous cultural activities, day trips, and excursions. In addition to living in a Spanish home, cultural events and social activities enhance the cultural element of your experience. At the Center, you also benefit from the expertise of our staff, who guide you to more fully immerse yourself in the sevillano community.

These costs are merely orientative*

This plan estimates personal and miscellaneous expenses at approximately $175 per week. 

If you need to travel to a consulate for the purpose of obtaining a visa before your program abroad (semester students only), remember to budget for that travel expense.

Some students will spend more and others will spend less, of course. Consider your lifestyle and budget accordingly. 

The “Short Term” estimate is for one 3.5 week program; if you are participating in two, multiply by two.
