Want to hone your Spanish skills and study at a Jesuit university in southern Spain?  Spend a semester or academic year at Universidad Loyola Andalucía where students are trained to be "men and women for others" and "the best people for the world."  The university is multilingual and multicultural, and students can take advantage of courses offered in Spanish, English, and Spanish + English.  It is recommended that students have some Spanish language background, but this is not mandatory.  The university collaborates with school systems and local and multinational corporations for internships.

Universidad Loyola Andalucía has two campuses. Seville is the capital city of Andalucía and has approximately 700,000 people -- very similar in size to Omaha. Seville is known for Holy Week processions, being the birthplace of Flamenco, and for having a university-town feel in a big-city -- something that students enjoy.  Plus, its layers of Greek, Roman, and Moorish history make it fascinating for history buffs. Cordoba has the designation of World Heritage Site and played very important roles as a Roman and Moorish capital in earlier times. Cordoba is an affordable city, and students enjoy the fiestas that occur between April and June.


The Cities

Córdoba, Andalusia - Córdoba is the third largest city of Andalusia by both size and population, after Sevilla and Málaga. Today it is a medium-sized city, whose historic center was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1994. Ten years earlier, in 1984, the Mosque of Cordoba had been awarded the same title. It was nominated for the European Capital of Culture 2016, and it was a finalist to represent Spain. Also the Fiesta de los Patios was designated Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO in December 2012. Córdoba is a very pleasant and welcoming city, where you can enjoy street life and lively nightlife, thanks to its Mediterranean climate. A city with history, with many traditions and festivals, where you can immerse yourself in the Cordoba environment.You can get all sorts of information on the city's website.

Seville, Andalusia - Sevilla is the capital of Andalusia. With a population of some 700,000 inhabitants, it is the most populated city in the community and the fourth in Spain after Madrid, Barcelona and Valencia. Its old town is the largest in Spain and one of the three largest in Europe along with Venice and Genoa. Its historical and monumental heritage and its diverse scenic and cultural sites constitute a city which welcomes national and international tourism. Its most representative monuments are the cathedral and its tower the 'Giralda', the Real Alcazar, the Archivo de Indias (which are World Heritage Sites by Unesco since 1987) and the Torre del Oro. Seville is a city that is kept alive throughout the year, with a continuous atmosphere of culture, music, sports and leisure, inviting you to visit at any time and discover firsthand the real attraction that the city holds: their hospitality. You can find all sorts of information on the website of the city Seville Tourism

Program Duration
The Fall Semester usually runs from the 31 August through mid-January; Creighton students have the option of completing all final exams and returning to the USA prior to Christmas or after the New Year.  The Spring Semester usually starts in mid-January and ends on 31 June, with the option of staying through 3 July for the second exam period when students can re-sit final exams, as needed.


Financial Aid
Participants will pay tuition and fees directly to Creighton University and receive the equivalent at Universidad Loyola Andalucía. Students will be responsible for all room and board fees (paid abroad), insurance, and any traveling expenses. If eligible, institutional and federal financial aid are portable. Please check with the CU Financial Aid Office for specific inquiries.

Accommodation Website Link

Creighton highly recommends that students decide to live with a host family. The host family would provide breakfast and dinner (lunch depending on the family's routine) and offer an opportunity to integrate truly into the community. Host family accommodations generally average around 600 Euros per month including two or three daily meals.

ULA also has vetted housing services that students are asked to use to secure housing other than host families in both Cordoba and Seville.  These services will not charge a fee to Creighton students.  Many students live in shared flats (apartments) with other Spanish students to help integrate into the university, city life, and Spanish culture.  Living with a Spanish student can be a wonderful intercultural experience. Apartment accommodations generally average around 300 - 700 Euros per month.  Housing must be selected as early as possible. The two housing providers are Flunist and Room Sevilla. Creighton recommends using Flunist, as the costs are all-inclusive. Details can be found here.

 The members of the Loyola 360° buddy program help advise students on accommodation prior to arrival.
