1. GENERAL INTRODUCTION
The Faculties of Philology and Geography and History of the University of Sevilla are pleased to offer a special Study Program available exclusively to those students belonging to Universities from abroad with which agreements have been signed.
This Program is made up of two separate semester periods, one corresponding to Fall-Winter (courses of 4 hours per week taught between September 26 and December 15), and the other to Winter-Spring (courses of 4 hours per week taught between February 6 and May 11).
Each group will have a maximum of 30 participants, so that in those cases in which enrolment exceeds that number, a second group will be created. Courses in which enrolment is below 10 participants will not be offered.
Regular attendance at class sessions is compulsory and students will be expected to demonstrate their assimilation of course content in the examinations which will be set in each course. Final exams will be held at the end of each semester (in mid December and early in May respectively). The student, who misses three class sessions, without credible justification being provided, will find his/her Final Grade reduced by a full 0.5. Exceptions to these regulations regarding term dates and examination dates will only be considered under very special circumstances, with documentary justification being required, as well as the written permission of the student’s tutor, which will then need to be ratified by the Directors of the Program for Students from Abroad within each of the Faculties concerned.

5. EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

Volunteering

The SACU unit runs a Volunteers Office where those students who are interested in volunteer services will be provided with practical help, information and guidance about how to collaborate with humanitarian and non-governmental organizations. To find out about available options visit the University Volunteer Work Office in the Pabellón de Uruguay.

For further information: www.sacu.us.es (University Volunteer Work Office)
Work-Experience

As part of the University of Sevilla’s wide range of activities, there exists the possibility of setting up agreements with private companies and institutions whereby students have the opportunity to partcipate in Work-Experience projects.

Given the many benefits that are to be derived from this sort of training and since such an experience would be very unique for students from abroad and would provide important support for their curriculum, the Dean’s Office at the Faculty of Philology, through the Vice-Dean in charge of this initiative, invites students belonging to the Partner Programs to submit applications as possible candidates for inclusion within this kind of activity.

The Vice-Dean will inform both the Office for Students from Abroad and Faculty students in general of any requests from the private sector. Once the Office has posted the information, anyone from the Students from Abroad programs who is interested in participating in the Work-Experience initiative may send in their CVs for consideration.

The participation in Work-Experience initiatives under the agreements which are made can be considered as academic training. The supervision and coordination of each agreement on the part of Faculty of Philology will be done by a designated tutor who oversees the specific activity, as well as the tutor of the Partner Program to which the student belongs. Upon completion of the period of Work-Experience, the University of Sevilla, together with the company or institution concerned, will issue each student a certificate specifying the level of training achieved and the duration of the period involved.
The specific conditions and requirements related to this type of activity are explained in the official documents that have been given to each of the Directors of the Partner Program Courses of Study for Students from Abroad.
Language Exchange System

All those students wishing to set up conversation exchanges with Spanish students in our Faculties, with the aim of improving their knowledge of Spanish, can request the phone numbers and e-mail addresses that have been registered for this purpose at the Office for Students from Abroad.
