Students on the CEA Seville, Spain - Arts and Sciences Program will take some courses at the CEA Seville Center and some courses at either the University of Seville (USS) or Pablo de Olavide University (UPO). Please see below for differences about these two local universities:
USS: Students interested in multi-disciplined-area studies tend to be attracted to this program. USS is located close walking distance to the CEA Seville Center. This program does not dedicate resources to connecting study abroad students with locals.
UPO: UPO offers more focused-studies program. UPO provides a campus feel for students but does require a commute on the metro with an extra transportation expense (a 15-minute ride), as it is located outside the city center. UPO strives to provide an excellent program enriched by an emphasis on meeting local students.
