Discover Seville

The capital of Andalusia, Seville was one of the last footholds of the Moorish empire that ruled the Iberian Peninsula. It is home to the ingenious barber of Seville and the tempestuous Carmen.

 

 

Though the city preserves its past, modern Seville is the commercial hub of Andalusia. For a city of fewer than 800,000, Seville offers amazing cultural activities, from flamenco to classical, pop and jazz concerts.

 


 

 


 

Academics

UNE students will enroll in semester courses taught in English at Pablo de Olavide University (UPO), Spain's newest public university with a student population of 9,000. The modern campus is located just 5 miles outside historic Seville and is easily accessible by city transit. The courses listed below provide numerous options that will enable you to stay on track with your UNE major. You'll also enroll in a Spanish language course.

 

Choose at least one Spanish course and 3 or 4 of the following other courses taught in English at UPO. Students will receive transfer credit for courses taken at UPO as outlined in the course list below, with the exception of the Biology and Organic Chemistry courses, which are UNE courses and for which students, therefore, receive UNE institutional credit. All courses are three credits each, with the exception of the Intensive Spanish course taken prior to the start of the regular semester, which is one credit in the Fall and two in the Spring. An Application for Transfer Course Work form must be completed and submitted to the Global Education Program office during the course registration period.
