Ideal for university students with all levels of Spanish, our semester programs include courses accredited by Universidad de Sevilla. Programs begin with an orientation session which includes an intensive Spanish language course. Academic schedules combine regular university courses in English and Spanish, program-specific courses designed for international students, and supplementary language and tutoring sessions carried out by YES staff. A supplemental Spanish course and Discussion Forum continue throughout the semester.
Internship experiences and technical visits can be incorporated into programs.
Flights to Spain
Hassle-free international airfare can br coordinated for groups and invidivuals alike. Travel reservations are made possible through a partnership between YES and a renowned travel agency. We do not require that travel be reserved though our partner, and airfare is purchased separately. Payments for flights are made directly to the travel agency. If you plan on flying into a different airport (not Seville), we can offer advise on travel between other Spanish destinations to Seville.

Students are met at the Seville airport by YES staff on program start day. Participants are transported to orientation site or directly to accommodation, depending on program schedule and time of arrival. Students arriving before or after the program start day may request an individual airport reception for an extra fee.
