Spain seville alcazar inside 343677719

Ideal for Engineering, Science or Math majors, this intensive three-week program offers Engineering, Math, and many Science majors the option to take one of their core course requirements, Differential Equations, in beautiful Seville, Spain at the historic Universidad de Sevilla - in English! This program allows students who want to get ahead in their major requirements over the summer, have a lighter course load their prior Spring semester, or even for those who might have fallen behind, the chance to do so in Spain, with NO prior Spanish knowledge necessary. Students will study at the Universidad de Sevilla and will travel to Cádiz and Granada as part of the program. Normal Differential Equations pre-requisites apply: your home institution's equivalents to: Linear Algebra and Multivariable Calculus.

API students participate excursions designed to help familiarize them with the culture and surrounding areas of their host city and country. The following is a listing of potential excursions for API Seville programs. API may need to modify the excursions offered in a given term due to travel restrictions or health and safety concerns.

  • Cádiz

    Cádiz has over 3000 years of history and is one of the oldest cities in Europe. For many years, Cádiz was the link between Europe and the New World which explains the many similarities between Cádiz and Havana, Cuba. A walk around the city center is a joy to the senses with the sea, the streets, the Cathedral dome and the colorful houses along the coast.

  • Granada

    Granada is one of the most enchanting cities in Spain. With more than a thousand years of recorded history, Granada enjoys one of Spain’s most important cultural and architectural patrimonies. Important sites in Granada include the Alhambra and the historical Moorish Albaicín quarter, both designated as World Heritage sites by the UNESCO.

What You’ll Study

Designed for students with no previous knowledge of Spanish language, students studying in Seville can take a course covering differential equations. This offers students in Spain a unique opportunity to get mathematics credit, taught in English, in a short-term program. Students on this program will also travel to Cádiz and Granada as part of the program!


API students will receive a transcript from the Universidad de Sevilla upon completion of their program.

API students in Seville can choose from two different housing options – students may choose to live with a host family or in a residencia. Internet access is included in both options.

Students who choose to live with families share a double room with a fellow API student and are provided with three meals per day and laundry service. Families provide an amazing opportunity to experience Spanish culture firsthand. Host families serve as a unique introduction into Spanish culture and may be made up of a married couple with children, a divorced or widowed woman with children still at home, or a family with some members living at home and others living outside the home. Students can opt for a single room for an additional fee.

Students in Seville may also choose to live in a residencia. Residencias are usually small, family-run student residences that house international students and occasionally Spanish students. Traditionally 1-2 students share a bedroom, and a bathroom is shared by multiple students. All students have access to living, TV, and common areas. Residencias are generally co-ed and accommodate 2-30 students. Most students are provided with three meals per day. Single rooms may be available for an additional fee.
