14 Oct Life in Seville
Life in Seville
In our parent handbook, you will find practical information about where students will be living, health and safety concerns, how to keep in touch with your student and more helpful information about your student’s time abroad.
We also have a counseling service which offers orientation and assistance for any potential issues in the daily lives of COWA students.
Spanish host family: Your room and board, including meals and laundry, are taken care of by your host families. Your family will only speak Spanish, helping you practice your Spanish language skills. Living with a Spanish family allows you to learn about Spain and Sevilla from the locals personal.
COWA staff members take great care to offer you a homestay that will be the best fit and make you feel at home. They personally interview and visit all homes in order to ensure their suitability and that their locations are safe and close to campus.
COWA staff is also available 24/7 to help students deal with any problems that may arise during their stay.
During your time here, you will have access to COWA’s library and EUSA’s facilities, which include a computer lab with high-speed internet access, free Wifi all over campus and free printing. There is also an on-site café where you can get a quick snack or a café con leche.
Since you will be living with a host family, all your meals will be prepared, unless previous arrangements are made. This allows you to personally experience the Spanish diet and eating schedule. Personal dietary restrictions can be accommodated. Be sure to communicate any dietary requirements to COWA’s staff as early as possible to ensure that your needs are met.
