University Faculty-Led Programs
UNIVERSITY FACULTY-LED PROGRAMS
Our Faculty-Led Programs offer university students the perfect opportunity to take short-term, credit-bearing courses in Seville, accompanied by their home university professor or tutor!
Visiting Professors: What to expect
The visiting professor may give a university course or courses to their students at Spanish Institute, and will feel right at home in our teaching center – fully equipped with wifi, projectors, whiteboards, a computer lab, an extensive library, a teachers’ room, and an area of leisure for the students.
From the moment of their arrival, visiting professors can concentrate on teaching and enjoying their beautiful surroundings, as Spanish Institute organizes all accommodation, excursions, guest speakers, and transportation. All excursions are related to the subject material and are guided by one of Spanish Institute’s own teachers. Visiting professors and students will find it easy to get around town, as Spanish Institute is just a 15-minute walk from the center of Seville and right around the corner from a metro station and bus stops.
Visiting professors may stay with a host family or in an apartment. They will be invited to join the group on all of the cultural visits and participate in the workshops. They may, optionally, join a class of adult learners instructed in Spanish or English, with various topics covering such things as the latest teaching methods, the current situation in Spain, how the lives of women in Spain has changed in the last 50 years to name a few.
Optionally, some universities may wish to complement the classes of the visiting professor/tutor with other classes taught by Spanish professors. In these cases, Spanish Institute recruits local Spanish teachers as needed to meet the requirements of each university.
Visiting international students: What to expect
The program is designed to immerse international students into a global culture by living with a Spanish family, interacting with the locals, and enjoying the cuisine and city of Seville – all while taking university courses for credit offered by their home university professor or professors selected by Spanish Institute.
These programs are done in collaboration with universities, such that the participating educational institutions can choose exactly what they want to do with the course. The students travel with a professor from their university who gives the classes and prepares the students for planned field trips and activities in Seville and the surrounding region.
SPRING OR JANUARY TERM
Many universities and colleges offer their students an intensive course just before the start of the spring semester. Other universities and colleges prefer to organize their programs at the end of the spring term. Both options are a good opportunity to travel abroad and to devote 2 to 3 intensive weeks to learning another language and learning about another culture.
Students have a great experience and at the same time enjoy a very academically intense course with field trips and activities that are not tourist-focused. Participants gain a much deeper understanding of the cultural and historic aspects of Spain, contributing to their development as global citizens.
