If your plan is to go to another country to study at a foreign University, CLIC has something for you to consider! A professional and well respected language academy, we have developed strong relationships with many universities around the world, including the University of our home city, the University of Seville.
A semester program with CLIC and the University of Seville is a combined language and professional study program that will allow you not only to have an unforgettable experience abroad but also gain US credits for your home University!
Seville is located in the south of Spain and is the capital of the Andalusian region. Vibrant, full of colour, passion, music, great food and nice weather all-year-round it is a safe and fun place to study. Everything you’ve heard about Spain, you’ll find here: strong flamenco traditions, beautiful architecture, orange trees blossoming and a great attitude to life.
Seville is one of the most popular destinations for international students. First of all, the city has three huge public universities and a lot of private colleges, so you’ll get the chance to expand your horizons and continue your training. Secondly, Seville is a welcoming city for international students because of its relatively low cost of living and healthy work/life balance. And last but not least, the open mindset of local people will definitely allow you to integrate easily into the new environment so that you will feel right at home in no time!
How is the course structured?
This semester abroad program is a package that combines a language course with studying at the University. The program starts with a 3-week intensive Spanish course that will help you adapt to the new environment and prepare your language skills for when you start at the University. The classes at CLIC are held from 9:15 to 13:00.
After the first three weeks, you will start attending lectures at University.

Our offer includes accommodation as well as any kind of assistance required, so you have nothing to worry about while travelling to Spain. A driver will pick you up at the airport and take you to your accommodation. On the first day, classes start at 9:00, however, we recommend you are at school at a quarter to 9. Your other classmates will have the same level as you in Spanish and we will make sure you get to know your classmates on the first day. You’ll also be given an orientation walk around the city, so you get to see the main sights in the centre.
After class, in the afternoon, you have a wide variety of cultural activities to choose from – personally selected and prepared every week by CLIC’s cultural coordinator. Some of them are totally free, others have a figurative cost for the admission ticket. However, three weekly activities are always included in the package.
Six excursions to the most beautiful Andalusian cities are also included in the price, such as Cordoba, Granada, Cadiz, Huelva, Ronda and Jerez. What’s not to love?
How many credits would I get for my course?
Up to 18 US credits for North American and international students. You receive 3 American University credits for each 45 hours of classes at the University of Sevilla plus 3 credits for the Clic course.
Are the credits automatically transferred to my home university?
If you consider applying for this program, the first thing we recommend doing is talking to your Study abroad advisor at your home University. You receive the official transcript from the University of Seville and a certificate from CLIC. Should your home University not accept the CLIC tuition directly, you can get transferable credits through Benedictine College https://www.benedictine.edu/about/index.
In this case, you’ll need to contact Dr. McConnell before booking any course and she will advise you which classes to take.
