PROGRAM STRUCTURE AND REQUIREMENTS
This program offers students the opportunity to experience international education in two different environments: the SAIIE campus and EUSA (la Escuela Universitaria de Sevilla). At EUSA, the students will be able to share classes with both Spanish students and students from other European countries, which will help them to achieve an even deeper level of cultural immersion.
La Escuela Universitaria de Sevilla (EUSA) is a center affiliated with the University of Seville, in which you are offered different degrees. EUSA relies on an international student body in which American, European (participants of the ERASMUS program), and Spanish students can integrate into while studying at University.
EUSA ACADEMIC CALENDAR FOR SAIIE STUDENTS
SAIIE and EUSA don’t have the exact same academic calendar. With the aim of making the two institutions’ calendars compatible, SAIIE students will end earlier than other EUSA International Students, therefore they will be given extra assignments and projects to be completed, so they will complete all requirements as the other EUSA International Students. Certain classes may have more than one exam date.
Note: EUSA courses often have different academic calendars and may require students to arrive earlier and/or stay later than the normal SAIIE course schedule.
Students at the EUSA Campus will take courses in the following areas:
History, Technology, Writing, Culture, Advertising, Publications, Scripting, Film-Making, Spanish for Communications, Media Studies, Art, Cinema, and Business.
Creative Writing, Art, Media, Law, Political Science, History, Language, New Reporting, Advertising, Public Relations, Cyber Culture.
Advertising, Marketing, Social Media, Media Studies, Photography, Sociology, Art, Design, Geography, and Ethics.
Operations, Management, Business, Statistics, Law, German for Tourism, French for Tourism, Human Resources, Marketing, Political Science, and Computer Science.
- Have completed at least one full-time semester of college at the time of application and have at least sophomore standing at the time of participation.
- A student must have a minimun cummulative grade point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 on grading scale (semester applicants)* or 2.25 GPA (winterim or summer applicants)**
- A student must be in good academic standing at the time of participation.
- Students enrolling in EUSA courses will register at EUSA and will be able to make changes in their course schedule within the first week.
- Comply with the academic rules of SAIIE and EUSA.
**Students with a grade point average between a 2.0 and 2.25 may be considered on a case-by-case basis for winterim and summer terms at the discretion of SAIIE.
- Study in SAIIE is obligatory and students must take as a minimum a Spanish language or literature class and the Artistic Monuments of Seville class taught in Spanish or English.
- Choose 1 to 3 classes in the catalogue of EUSA, taking into account that if the timetable of these classes is not compatible with the classes offered by SAIIE then SAIIE will have absolute preference.
- In the case of applying for classes offered at EUSA in Spanish, the student should have an advanced level (minimum 6 semesters in University) to be able to follow the class in a suitable way.
- if you choose a class taught in Spanish from the SAIIE program (except the Spanish language courses), you will need to have studied a minimum of 5 semesters of Spanish at university. This condition is crucial for the correct understanding and participation of the student.
