Overall Experience
I learned to get outside my comfort zone even when I did not want to. It was worthwhile to try new things and take experiences back with me! - Point Loma Nazarene University View Entire Review
Past Review Incredible
You will meet all sorts of people, but will also learn what kind of person you are. Going abroad changed my life for the better, and it was definitely worthwhile! - University of Hartford View Entire Review
I learned how to be on my own, communicate in a foreign country effectively, take responsibility for my actions like when I missed a flight, and take care of myself by going to the doctor and speaking only in Spanish to them because no one else was going to do it for me. I learned that all things pass and get better with time, i... - Trinity University View Entire Review
This was one of the best experiences of my life. I miss it every single day- especially the incredible people I met. Four months was just not enough time, I was not ready to leave. I think everyone should go abroad and experience something like this because it truly will change their life. I have a new-found sense of adventure a... - University of Maine - Orono View Entire Review
Yes, I confirmed to myself that I can live independently and calculate my budget in such a way, that there's enough food in the fridge and there's some money left for a weekend trip. - Berea College View Entire Review
This experience was probably the best decision I will make in my life. I gained and learned more than I can even fathom. In the most general sense, it broke down barriers I had that falsely had compartmentalized the regions of the world, in my mind, it also encouraged me to think in different ways, I learned that adjusting to ne... - Point Loma Nazarene University View Entire Review

I gained so much! I learned how to live abroad on my own and the cultural differences. This was pretty much the greatest experience of my life! - Bryant University View Entire Review
I learned a lot about myself, and became very independent. I learned not to be afraid in unplanned or unexpected situations. I learned to navigate, budget, and plan. The experience allowed me to become a member in another society and truly understand the day to day aspects of life abroad in this little part of the world. - Bryant University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with API (Academic Programs International): Seville - Pablo de Olavide University
Studying abroad is something everyone should do at least once. I loved studying abroad and learning so much about different cultures of the world. I would definitely have studied abroad with API if I had to do it again but would have chosen a program of a smaller size as I believe my language would have improved even more if I w... - Marist College View Entire Review
My experience was amazing. I am so glad I chose Sevilla, UPO, and Rosa's residencia. I am a changed person from this experience. It has made me a better person, and I have learned so much. It has made me realize that I would like to travel more in the future and live in Spain if possible. - Fairfield University View Entire Review
Past Review
global citizen. definitely worthwhile. i had the time of my life there. - Rice University View Entire Review
Yes, it was 100% worthwhile. I learned to accept change, live with a plan and without a plan, and to appreciate things that are new to me. I gained language skills and a confidence that I have not had before. - Eastern Illinois University View Entire Review
How to be truly independent and on my own. Worthwhile - University of Maine - Orono View Entire Review
I am so thankful that I was able to study abroad. It was one of the best experiences of my life. Going to a totally different country and having to adapt to new customs, food and ways of life pushes and challenges you in ways I never thought possible. I got to discover parts of myself I didn’t think existed and experience life l... - University of Maine - Orono View Entire Review
Past Review Great
it was an experience that made me more aware of different cultures and educated me to become more accepting of others - Berea College View Entire Review
Absolutely. It is worth the headaches of application forms, the meltdowns before leaving and the debts. - University of Wisconsin - LaCrosse View Entire Review
That you need to leave your bubble and put yourself in an uncomfortable experience in order for it to be beneficial. I met so many people that I would have never had the chance to meet if I didn't go abroad. I'm so thankful that I was pushed to go because it also made me look at things much more appreciatively back home. - Saint Anselm College View Entire Review
Studying abroad in Sevilla enabled me to explore Western Europe and Northern Africa. I was exposed to a different way of living and a new pace of life. Each day was so unique and exciting. I improved my Spanish and cultural awareness. - Fairfield University View Entire Review
Yes - Saint Anselm College View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with API (Academic Programs International): Seville - Pablo de Olavide University
I only wish I could do it all over again. I often dream about my time in Sevilla and the people I met there- many of whom I still keep in contact with and consider my best friends. To sum up how much I would love to go back, I'll tell you about a dream I had recently (although it is a full year after I studied abroad). My friend... - Marist College View Entire Review

About

Seville, capital of Andalusia and Spain’s 4th largest city, is located between the Sierra Morena mountains and the Atlantic Ocean. Enjoying culture from the Romans, Visigoths, Muslims, Jews and Christians throughout the ages, and serving as the focal point of the Spanish Renaissance, Seville is rich in history and tradition. When visiting Seville one can experience the city as it was centuries ago. The lovely winding streets and active public squares of the Barrio Santa Cruz allow the visitor insight into the oldest portion of the city, and the list of monuments and historic sites is seemingly endless. The Tower of Gold once served as landmark for arriving ships and Seville’s amazing Cathedral houses the tomb of Christopher Columbus. The 12th century Moorish palace, the Alcázar, is the oldest palace-fortress still in use by European royalty. While studying, exploring the streets, visiting museums, or soaking up Spanish culture, API students in Seville gain a broad education in Spanish language and civilization.


  • Multidisciplinary Studies in English and Spanish: This program caters to the needs of those with little or no background in Spanish who want to study abroad in Seville, by offering Spanish culture, business and science classes that are taught in English. Students at all levels may take courses in English with Spaniards. Students with more advanced study in Spanish can also choose from a variety of classes in Spanish culture and civilization, either with Spanish or other international students. Each class is equivalent to three semester credits. A placement exam determines the language level of each student. Spanish language classes have a minimum of 8 and a maximum of 16 students per class. All other classes have a minimum of 8 and a maximum of 25 students per class.
