SUMMER A (May 4 – June 15) 2017
Why study in Seville?
Seville (pop. 700,000) is the capital city of the Andalusian region of Southern Spain, lying along the Guadalquivir River. This great city was built by Romans who appreciated its beautiful location and pleasant weather. Barrio Santa Cruz, the old part of Seville, is a labyrinth of passages, small squares, and narrow streets, characterized by quaint, lime-washed houses with flowering plants draping their balconies or patios. Seville is best known for its dramatic landscape, including vast fields of olive trees, endless orange groves, and Moorish palms. With a clear, deep blue sky, the impressive and historic Guadalquivir River, and a flat terrain, Seville offers the spectator a striking interplay of picturesque views, which explains why it is sometimes called “the city of reflections”.

Three meals a day are taken with the host family and are included in the program cost, as is once-weekly laundry service.
Excursions will be organized to Madrid, Toledo, Granada, Córdoba, El Escorial, and Málaga and Cádiz.

Not included: airfare, books, personal expenses.
A $350. non-refundable deposit (UFIC administrative fee) toward the total cost is required at the time of application. Payment of this deposit reserves a place in the program, so it is wise to get it in as early as possible. The remaining fees are due no later than 30 days prior to departure. Students receiving financial aid may defer remaining fee payment for up to 60 days after departure.
Students taking any UFGPA credit courses abroad will be charged a $16.22 per credit processing fee.
University of Florida students needing financial aid should apply through UF Student Financial Aid Affairs. Non-UF students needing financial aid must apply to their home institutions.
