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.






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.
