About the Location

Spain is located in Southern Europe and shares land borders with Portugal, France, Andorra, and Gibraltar.  Spain is also a short ferry ride from Morocco.  Seville is the artistic, cultural, and financial capital of Southern Spain.  With a population of 700,000, Seville has a historical feel and offers many cultural activities.


Academics

All courses are taught in Spanish.

The Business and Society program offers students at the advanced language level the opportunity to solidify their Spanish language skills, while gaining an understanding of economic and business management in Spain and the European Union.  The program combines coursework, related lectures, internships, and company visits.  In addition, students have the opportunity to directly enroll in regular University courses.


General ProgramDates

Fall semester – early September to mid-December or mid/late January
Spring semester – late January to mid-May or mid/late June


Cost

Costs for study abroad vary program to program and will not be exactly the same as on-campus costs of attendance at Elon.

For cost information for this program, please see the budget sheets:


Scholarships/Travel Grants

Need-based scholarships are available for Elon semester programs through the GEC.  For additional information on scholarships or other funding for study abroad, see the Funding for Study Abroad page.

If you qualify for a travel grant through any of the fellows or scholars programs, see the appropriate program director for more information on how to apply the grant to your study abroad program.  Visit the Deadlines and Events Calendar for travel grant deadlines.

CIEE offers scholarships to students studying abroad on CIEE programs.  Information is available on the CIEE website.


Housing

Students in the Business and Society track have the option of living with a host family or in a student residencia.

Housing, all meals, and laundry privileges are included for students living with a host family.

Students choosing the residencia option have all meals except Sunday lunch and have limited meal service during Christmas break, Easter Week, and Feria.  Laundry services are also the responsibility of the student in the residencia.  All attempts are made to house students individually and in their own room; however, during the spring semester individual rooms are not guaranteed, and many CIEE students share their room and/ or homestay with another CIEE student. 

Academic year students may choose to move into private apartments with Spaniards (not other Americans or English-speakers) during the spring semester.


Applications

Students must complete the online Elon University study abroad application by the published deadline.  See the Deadline and Events Calendar for the most up-to-date deadline information.  Applications are generally accepted one semester in advance.

Initial approval is granted by Elon, and final acceptance is granted by CIEE.


Visa

A visa is a special page inserted into a passport to show that the holder has received permission from the government to remain in the country for an extended period of time.  Students will be required to appear in person at the Spanish consulate with jurisdiction over their home state in order to apply for a visa.  In many cases this will require transportation to and a hotel stay in the appropriate city.  Students should take these expenses and time commitments into account when applying for this program.  Students should also be aware that the visa process will require surrendering their passports for a period of up to eight weeks, during which time they will not be able to travel outside of the United States.

The visa application fee as of Summer 2011 is $140.

Students will receive more information about the visa process during orientation.

Orientations

A successful semester abroad is dependent upon adequate preparation.  Students will participate in a series of mandatory orientations during the semester prior to studying abroad.  These orientations will address issues of academic, cultural, logistical, financial, and personal preparation, as well as health and safety.  Failure to participate in the required orientations will result in dismissal from the program.  Any financial losses incurred by this dismissal, including program fees and international airfare, are the student's full responsibility.

Click here for the semester programs pre-departure orientation schedule.

Once the orientation schedule is set, you will be notified by email of the times, dates, and locations.

Testimonial:
Testimonial:
The CIEE Business program in Seville is a very good one. It is just the perfect combination of city, family, travelling, and studying. People in Seville are very welcoming and nice to internationals and people working in CIEE are very helpful. I learned a lot in my classes and the work load was good enough that I had time to do other activities besides studying which made my experience one of the best I have had because I had the opportunity of going to places I had never imagined of going, such as Greece and Morocco.
