UNC in Sevilla (Summer)
The UNC in Sevilla-Summer Program is one of the oldest study abroad programs offered by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and enjoys a rich history of academic excellence.
Sevilla, located in southern Spain, is the capital of Andalusia. Sevilla is an old and beautiful city in southern Spain! It is easily accessible by train from many parts of Spain. Studying in Sevilla provides the unique opportunity to explore Spanish--especially Andalusian--culture in a large city that is not overwhelmingly so. Sevilla's architecture provides a history lesson as Spanish and European elements mix with remaining Moorish structures to create a city that never fails to impress and inspire all who visit. There are many historical buildings and in many parts of the city, especially in the older parts of town, some streets are mainly pedestrian. There are many orange trees in Sevilla and Andalusia and during certain times of the year, the smell of oranges fills the air. Like many Spanish towns, people are out strolling and eating even late at night!
The language prerequisite is 4 semesters, completed by the start of the program.
The Summer program has multiple program and track options. Students will select their program and track preference during the application process.

Send your name, PID, and email to Elizabeth Bruno (email@example.com). She will add you to Sakai where the test is set. You will then take the test at any time and will have 40 minutes in which to complete the test. Once you have completed the assessment test, send him the link to the Study Abroad language assessment form and he will complete that based on your results.
