Study Abroad + Options
Seville, the capital of Andalusia and Spain’s 4th largest city, is located between the Sierra Morena mountains and the Atlantic Ocean. Enjoying culture from the Romans, Visigoths, Muslims, Jews and Christians throughout the ages, and serving as the focal point of the Spanish Renaissance, Seville is rich in history and tradition. When visiting Seville one can experience the city as it was centuries ago. The lovely winding streets and active public squares of the Barrio Santa Cruz allow the visitor insight into the oldest portion of the city, and the list of monuments and historic sites is seemingly endless. The Tower of Gold once served as a landmark for arriving ships, and Seville’s amazing Cathedral houses the tomb of Christopher Columbus. The 12th century Moorish palace, the Alcázar, is the oldest palace-fortress still in use by European royalty. While studying, exploring the streets, visiting museums, or soaking up Spanish culture, API students in Seville gain a broad education in Spanish language and civilization.
API offers students two university options for study abroad during their gap year in Seville:
Founded in 1502, the Universidad de Sevilla is one of the most well-known universities in Spain. It is located in the heart of the city, and features some of Seville’s most beautiful buildings. Students focus on language acquisition, cultural enrichment, and historic discoveries.
The Universidad Pablo de Olavide is a state institution founded in 1997. Its mission is to educate the men and women of tomorrow through a strong academic program, innovative research, and a highly educated faculty. Taking full advantage of its resources and structure, it offers meaningful solutions to the scientific, technical and cultural challenges society faces today. Located on a beautiful 345-acre campus about five miles from Seville, it is easily accessible by public transportation ( a 30-minute metro ride from Seville’s city center).
API students who elect to pursue an internship during their gap experience in Seville will be able to select from a wide variety of placement opportunities across companies large and small.
“I loved the diversity of classes one could take, plus the excursions and activities offered through API!"
API students in Seville have the opportunity to give back to their local community through various volunteer projects, including teaching in primary schools, providing food for the homeless, and various ecological and environmental projects.
