Semester abroad in Seville
Are you thinking of doing a semester abroad in Seville while gaining credits for your home college? That seems like a pretty great idea to us too! This is probably a pretty daunting task for you to organize yourself so we’ve made our semester abroad in Seville program as simple for you as possible! This program at CLIC includes Spanish lessons, accommodation, cultural activities, health insurance, and a bunch of other goodies. We’ll even pick you up from the airport and take you straight to your accommodation!
On your first day of class, you’ll be placed into a group at your level and introduced to your teacher and classmates, and then in the afternoon we’ll give you a tour of the city so you can get your bearings around your new home for the next few months. We make sure you’re looked after from the moment you arrive until the day you leave, so you can focus on exploring Spain and learning Spanish!
Seville is a city deep in the south of Spain and is everything you are possibly imagining when you think of Spanish culture – flamenco dancers, tapas bars, sunny rooftop terraces, and plenty of good beer and wine to keep you hydrated! You name it, Seville’s got it. If you’re looking to experience Spain as it’s been for hundreds of years, then Seville is the ultimate destination for you.
It’s no surprise that Seville is such a popular choice for international students. With a huge historical city center that’s almost too photogenic to be believed and a vibrant student community that organizes regular parties, meet-ups, and trips, it’s impossible to get bored in Seville.
Seville’s location is also great for anyone that wants to get out and about and see a little more of the wider world. Not only is Seville airport connected to airports all over Europe in no more than a couple of hours, but there are so many day and weekend trips much closer to home – Cadiz, Cordoba, Granada, and even Portugal and Morocco. CLIC’s cultural program organizes all of this and more so you can squeeze as much as possible into your semester abroad.
How is the course structured?
The Spanish classes are held from 9:15 to 13:00. In the afternoon, CLIC offers different cultural activities, including visits to museums, sport and leisure activities, additional classes on Spanish culture and cinematography, and much more. Some of them are free of charge, the others have a small cost. However, three activities a week are already included in your package.
On Saturdays, our students are offered a full-day trip to one of the nearby cities. Six trips to the most iconic Andalusian cities are also included in the price of your package, so you’ll visit Cordoba with its beautiful Christian Mosque, Granada and its Alhambra, Cádiz and Huelva with their beautiful beaches, and the incredibly impressive Ronda and Jerez.
How good will my Spanish be by the time I leave?
That depends on your initial level of Spanish. In theory, if you study continuously and don’t need to redo a level, you can go from a complete beginner to a C2 (fluent) level in 28 weeks. However, if that pace is too fast for you, you are totally able to do the same level again to make sure you’ve really got a solid grasp of it.

How many credits would I get for my course?
This is something you absolutely should check with whoever’s in charge of coordinating your study abroad at your home college as it’s really up to them. However, we find that generally, 45 hours of classes translates to 3 college credits in the US.
How are the credits transferred to my home college?
Always make sure you’ve spoken to your study abroad advisor at your home college to make sure they recognize a course for credits. If you get the go-ahead from them, we’ll send regular reports to your home college and a transcript of your grades at the end of your course.
Even if they won’t recognize the course for credits, you can still get your credits here officiated by Benedictine College for a fee.
