Fall 2013 or Spring 2014: $20,490
Includes: Northeastern University (NU) tuition for 16 NU credits ($20,390), and 24/7 worldwide emergency assistance ($100). Please note that depending on the program track students may be required to take or have the option of taking five courses. Should students choose to transfer back the fifth course, the student will be liable for an additional 4 credit overload fee ($5,100). Students are responsible for all other expenses, including housing and other non-academic costs for which they will be billed directly by the program provider or host institution. Students are also responsible for arranging and purchasing their own flights.
Accommodation options vary by track. Housing, all meals, and laundry privileges are included for students living in in Spanish- speaking private homes. Living in a homestay is the best way to improve language skills and feel a part of the local culture. 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 Englishspeakers) during the spring semester. Given the size of the city, all students should expect to use public transportation to commute from their place of residence to their classes.
Capital of Andalusia, Seville was one of the last footholds of the Moorish empire that ruled the Iberian Peninsula. It is home to the ingenious barber of Seville and the tempestuous Carmen. The great Renaissance painters Velázquez and Murillo were born here, and Ferdinand and Isabel ruled Spain from the royal apartments in the Alcazar Palace. Though the city preserves its past, modern Seville is the commercial hub of Andalusia. For a city of fewer than 800,000, Seville offers amazing cultural activities, from flamenco to classical, pop, and jazz concerts.
