Program Structure

This program is designed for students that have a minimum high intermediate level of Spanish, and for those who want to combine their academic experience with the total cultural immersion through the extra curricular activities offered by our program.

That is why SAIIE has teamed together with the faculties of Geography, History and Language Study at the University of Seville, to offer students a wide range of classes that allow the student to flexibly combine different types of courses. These can be taught in Spanish or English depending on their academic needs, the level of challenge they want to set themselves during their stay in Seville or, simply, the student’s preference.

The student may choose between the following, amongst other various subjects:

  • High intermediate or advanced Spanish courses (grammar, translation, writing workshops…)

  • Spanish literature courses (Cervantes, feminine literature, travel/medieval/contemporary literature…)

  • Spanish culture courses (Spanish civilization, flamenco, gastronomy, wine, Spanish folklore…)

  • Courses about the history and anthropology related to Spain, Europe and Latin America.

  • Business courses (marketing, European Union…)

  • Art courses (history of art, cinema, painting, photography…)

Each student must take between a minimum of 12 credits and a maximum of 18, per semester. Each class consists of 45 class hours, worth 3 credits except SPAN 3100 (Intercambio Activity), worth 1 credit.

Classes on this program are taught in both English (refer to the International Studies Classes catalogue) and high intermediate and advanced level Spanish (refer to the General Level and Advanced Level Classes).

The minimum requirement to participate on this program is 5 semesters of Spanish study at university level. However, if you choose classes from the Advanced Level section, you will need to have studied a minimum of 6 semesters of Spanish at university. This condition is crucial for the correct understanding and participation of the student.

Classes are taught from Monday to Thursday, usually on alternating days (Monday-Wednesday or Tuesday-Thursday) and 2 hours per session.

It is mandatory that every student takes the ART 3800 class (Artistic Monuments in Seville) or ART 3900 (Artistic Monuments in Seville), and one Spanish class chosen from the General Level or Advanced Level, giving the student their own choice for the rest of the classes.

Please note: Classes will be taught at two centres; the SAIIE facilities and the University of Seville’s main building. Both centres are located in the historical centre of Seville, approximately 15 minutes away.
