PRELIMINARY ITINERARY (final itinerary subject to change)
March 4 Arrive Seville
May 12 Depart Program

Unlimited enrollment - all students who qualify for this program can participate.
Seville is one of the most beloved places for visitors to Spain. When you visit this city you are in the very heart of Andalusian culture, the center of bullfighting and flamenco music. There is no better way to acquire a language than by immersing yourself in the culture, traditions, and sounds of your chosen language. Multi-lingual individuals are highly sought after in today’s global business community. Become one of these individuals and have the experience of a lifetime. Whether studying in your Spanish language institute, speaking with your host family over dinner, or browsing the local shops, you will quickly find you are thinking and speaking in Spanish in a way you never thought you could. The intensive language and culture/history courses are delivered in Spanish. Class sizes are kept small and cultural excursions are typically included.  Along the way, take life easy as the Andalusians do and enjoy tapas, the world famous “small dishes” of Spanish cuisine.  

Total Credit Hours Earned Abroad On This Program:
  • 9 quarter credits for the core JWU Language Immersion class only, OR
  • 13.5 quarter credits for the core JWU Language Immersion class plus one optional CLIC culture course
The specific courses on this program are listed in the "Courses Offered" link above. The optional CLIC courses will meet every day during the last 4 weeks of your program for 2.5 hours in the afternoon after your core language courses.  The courses will be delivered in a mixture of English and Spanish based on the language proficiency of the enrolled group.  Only JWU students will be in this course due to our unique program start and end dates.  Each additional course has a minimum enrollment of 4 and a maximum enrollment of 10 JWU students.  If more than 10 students sign up for the same course, then there will be two sections.  If a minimum of 4 students are able to sign up for each course option, then both courses can run, but there is a likely possibility that the group of students interested in 13.5 credits will be small enough to require a collective choice for one course or the other.  The decision will be made by majority rule.  Please keep an open mind as both courses will provide you an increased view into Spanish culture and context while satisfying graduation requirements at JWU.

Please be aware that this program offers courses from both the JWU and CLIC catalogs. Students schedule for the the JWU courses following normal JWU course registration steps.  However, since the optional CLIC courses are not from the JWU catalog, students schedule at JWU for one additional "ABRD4180" placeholder course that is holding the space for the host course completed abroad. You will only be able to schedule for the placeholder course if you shared your final academic plan with SAS and official summary notes have been written in your JWU degree audit.

Upon completion of the program, the host will send an official transcript to JWU Study Abroad. The JWU course will receive a regular letter grade.  The optional host course will be applied to the JWU transcript as transfer credit. The typical timeline for your JWU transcript to be updated is 3-5 months.

Student Status: 
Must demonstrate you are a current Johnson & Wales University student or a matriculating student at another academic institution.

Student Prerequisite Courses:
None. The host can accommodate all learning levels from beginner to advanced.

JWU Study Abroad staff coordinate pre-departure information. JWU staff does not travel with the students and program supervision is provided on site by the host institute.  The host institute delivers all academic content and is responsible for assessing your academic performance and awarding your final grade according to the host country’s grading scale. Upon completion of your studies abroad, your transcript will be sent to JWU. If necessary, JWU will translate your grade into the U.S. equivalent for incorporation into your GPASpanish LCI 2.

JWU Study Abroad will schedule pre-departure meetings to discuss the detailed program itinerary with the selected student group and outline any pre-departure assignments.

The immersive language learning environment requires that all instruction is given in the target language. No English will be used in the Spanish classes.  You will be tested upon arrival for correct individual placement into the language level most appropriate for you.

Learning on study abroad programs occurs both inside and outside of the classroom. During the program, you should expect to be in program-related activities 20-25 hours per week. You are required to participate in the full program itinerary and group activities.

A host family with your own private bedroom and a shared bathroom.  Host families can be large or small, young or old, single adults or multi-generational.  The volunteer families have been selected, trained and monitored by the host school who provides this service to their larger student body.  While the host may be housing another international student, JWU students will not be housed with other JWU students in the same host family.

3 meals/day, 7 days/week provided by host family.

Flight parameters are set by Study Abroad to accommodate group logistics. Do not purchase any flight until the specific parameters are communicated to you via your Study Abroad ULearn site, usually 4 months prior to departure.

You must be in good standing with your campus's office of Student Conduct or Student Affairs for the dates of the program.

Each program has a mandatory orientation process which starts the term before your program starts. Failure to participate in the various meetings listed below may jeopardize your ability to participate in the program.

Pre-departure meetings vary according to the program model and typically include discussions, on-line resources, and assignments to ensure you understand your specific program, the courses, housing, costs and other related details. These meetings may be a combination of in-person and web-based meeting formats.

An in-person Study Abroad Retreat is scheduled on each campus with advertised dates, times, and locations to discuss topics relevant to all study abroad programs. 

An in-country Orientation is included upon arrival to your program for on-site information and program reminders.

The most rewarding part was being able to travel to a whole other side of the world and experience a different way of living and see different things.
