Location Details

Sevilla (pop. 1,500,000) is most-notably the birthplace of Flamenco and celebrates its long-standing legacy of bullfighting, both of which have played a vital role in the development of Sevillan culture and identity. With a rich blend of Christian, Moorish, and Jewish traditions, Sevilla's deep history is still prevalent today, as exhibited in its monuments and architecture and is home to the largest Gothic cathedral in the world. Its temperate climate, elegant flamenco style, and vibrant neighborhoods make this place a premiere student destination.

Sevilla, the capital of Andalusia, is the fourth-largest city in Spain and offers students opportunities to explore Spain's culture, language and history. Blending tradition and modernity, Sevilla is as relaxed as it is energetic, with boundless sunshine, non-stop flamenco dancing, and countless tapas bars. Located on the banks of the Guadalquivir River, student mobility around the city is unmatched with easy access to metro, bus, tram, and bicycle. Recognized for the largest Semana Santa celebration in the country and spectacular turnouts for the Feria de Abril, students will be able to stand alongside local Sevillanos to partake in these unsurpassable Spanish festivities.

Academics

Academic Program & Courses

Recognized as one of the top-ranking universities in Spain today, the Universidad de Sevilla prides itself for its high standard of quality educators. The university sums up its educational directive in four words, 'Equality, Liberty, Justice, and Pluralism,' which is exemplified by its teaching methods, as well as its continued progress made in science, technology, and culture, showing why it has become such a popular destination for both domestic and international students. The Center for World University Rankings (CWUR) has deemed the Universidad de Sevilla as one of the top ten universities in Spain. 

Established in the 16th century, the Universidad de Sevilla campus was converted from the Royal Tobacco Factory in the 1950s, which was one of Europe's first manufacturing hubs of tobacco that was brought from the Spanish colonies in the Americas. The structure still remains as one of the greatest industrial buildings in Spain, and is one of the oldest of its kind in Europe. Today, the university has a student body of over 50,000. Student will take all of their courses with other American and international students.

Program Housing

ISA housing provides the opportunity for students to experience aspects of the Spanish lifestyle that are inaccessible to the average visitor of Spain. All ISA housing options are either within walking distance or conveniently located near public transit routes. Travel times to the various university buildings generally range between 15 and 40 minutes depending on housing and class locations. Please note: all housing in Spain is subject to availability. 

Homestay:
Homestays are the norm for Spain, and are encouraged by ISA. ISA participants living in homestays will be provided with three meals per day (except on ISA excursion days) and laundry service once per week for the official duration of the program. This is included in the ISA program cost. Students usually share a bedroom with another ISA student, but have the option of paying extra to secure an individual room.

ISA Apartment:*
Apartments are assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis, and availability is limited. Rent is included in the program price. Students are placed in furnished, centrally located apartments. All apartments are either within walking distance or conveniently located to public transit routes relative to the university. Meals and laundry service are not included.

Residencias:*
Conveniently located right next to the ISA Study Center in Sevilla, the Residencia is a dorm-like housing option for both male and female students (please note that roommate assignments will be same sex). Bedrooms come complete with lock and key, private bathroom, bed, closet, desk, and air conditioning and heating. The Residencia has a common kitchen for all the students to use and will come equipped with cooking utensils, appliances and cookware.

*A refundable security deposit will be charged to students living in ISA arranged housing (apartment/residencia). ISA may retain some, or all, of this deposit in the case of damage to property, or if utility usage exceeds the allotted monthly amount. For more information, click here.

Independent Housing:
Students may opt to secure housing independently. Students who select this option may receive a discount equal to the housing portion (room, board, and laundry) of the program price. By choosing to opt out of ISA housing, you are solely responsible for researching, reserving, and paying for all fees, deposits, and rent directly to the housing facility that you choose. Students who pursue independent housing will be required to complete an Independent Housing Waiver with the Study Abroad Office. For more information, please contact your International Coordinator.

Special Considerations

Below you will find information that may help you in planning for your study abroad experience. Early discussions and planning can help to support you in having a positive experience abroad. We invite you to meet with the International Coordinator for this program to discuss any questions or concerns you may have.

Physical Considerations

Study abroad participants may find themselves walking or taking public transit abroad more frequently than they are accustomed at their home campus.

Disability Accommodations Abroad

Individuals with disabilities can and do study abroad, but may find accessibility and accommodation in one of more of this program’s locations very different from the United States. 

In general, the Study Abroad Office cannot guarantee access to public transportation, buildings, or public sites on this program. Any student who anticipates needing any kind of special accommodation due to a disability should contact the ASU Study Abroad Office early in the planning process to investigate the availability of accommodations (including accessible facilities) on this specific program. Contact the Disability Resource Center and your Disability Access Consultant to include them in the discussion; be sure to give your Disability Access Consultant permission to speak with the Study Abroad Office on your behalf. You can find additional information and resources on our Students with Disabilities page.

LGBTQIA Students Abroad

Students of diverse sexual orientations or gender identities will find that the social climate, laws, and norms of other cultures will often differ from the U.S. If you identify as a lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, or queer student - or if you are still exploring your identity - you may face unique challenges when traveling abroad. 

We encourage students who identify as members of the LGBTQIA community to visit the U.S. Department of State website for helpful information about laws and attitudes in this program’s locations, including pre-travel tips and advice on staying safe while abroad. You can find additional information and resources on our LGBTQIA Students page.

Gender Identity Abroad

When traveling abroad, you may find different gender roles and norms than you’re used to. It’s possible that you may be treated differently or be expected to treat others differently based on your (or their) gender identity. 

You can find additional information and resources on our Gender Identity Abroad page.

Racial and Ethnic Minorities Abroad

Students of different ethnic and racial backgrounds may encounter unique challenges transitioning from life here in the United States to life as a student living abroad, including but not limited to access to personal care products and services.

You can prepare yourself for the situations you may experience by researching the ethnic composition of your host country and exploring its history of racial and ethnic relations. We encourage students to start that research on our Racial and Ethnic Minority Students page.
