Useful Information 

Location
Sevilla is a city of life and color. It is located in the South of Spain on the plain of the Guadalquivir River. From its narrow winding streets full of shade to its bustling cosmopolitan center, Sevilla has something for everyone. This city is the largest in Andalusia and is growing rapidly, as evidenced by the recently finished subway system.

The University
The Universidad de Sevilla is located in the historic center. This 16th century building used to be an old tobacco factory up until the fifties. It houses different university faculties: the School of Literature and Philology, the School of Geography and History and the Law School. The contrast of shadow and sun in its courtyards and green surroundings make it an ideal and inspiring place to study with friends.

Accommodation
ISA students will live in homestays or apartments throughout the city, and located is chosen based on the safety and feel of the neighborhood. Homestays and apartments are conveniently located near their university on foot or via public transportation. Walking is a way of life in Sevilla, and a wonderful way to explore the city. Most students will be living in the Nervión, Triana or Remedios zones of the city.
If you prefer, you can organise accommodation independently, or go for an ISA apartment. More information on the accommodation options can be found here:

How to Apply


Planning early is the best way to ensure you will get the most out of your time abroad.

It is important that you understand the requirements and structure of your course (and major/s) to ensure that you select overseas programs that can transfer back to your degree. To help understand your course structure, you should consult the Faculty Handbook published in the year in which you commenced your course (eg. if you began a Bachelor of Commerce in 2016, you should look at the Business School Undergraduate Handbook from 2016). Pre-2017 Handbooks can be found in the handbook archive.

Example application timeline

1. Select your program > 2. Apply for academic credit > 3. Complete Sydney Abroad application ('Apply Now' below) > 4. Apply to host university > 5. Receive academic approval & host acceptance (October/November) > 6. Apply for OS HELP (if eligible), book flights & visa > 7. Fly safe!



Receiving your academic credit approval can take up to 8 weeks – so it’s very important that you submit your application for academic credit to your faculty as soon as soon as you have selected your program of choice.
