Universidad de Sevilla, or University of Seville in English, is a public university and the main university of the Andalusia region of Spain. It was founded in the year 1505 and was then named Colegio Santa María de Jesús. Over 500 years later, the university educates approximately 70,000 students and is one of the best institutes of education in all of Spain. Its motto is ‘Equality, Liberty, Justice and Pluralism.’Show more
It’s a programme that tries to fit two bachelors badly. You have to have classes with the students from the two bachelors and have twice the work to do. Job wise, it doesn’t add too much, I would recommend doing just one bachelor’s.View more
Compared to other degrees and universities where students only have a single possibility to pass the subjects, the University of Seville and especially my degree (Marketing), gives us several possibilities to pass the subjects successfully, thanks to the continuous assessment and the partial exams we can divide the study load throughout the course.View more
Well, we are only people, with our lives, our needs, our times, our projects, and we do have the capacity of communicating and making the best of ourselves in school, (university), but the content of the classes is just not good enough, we definitely lack a better way to approach knowledge. In general, we don’t live what we do!
Also, a more global and national/international interaction with other students and professors would make students’ aspirations go much higher!View more
My name is Álvaro and I studied History at the University of Seville.
The university is located in the centre of the city, the old tobacco factory. It is a privileged place, full of charm, restaurants and in the best place.
The building is from the 18th century, but so is the teaching method. An expert gives a lecture in front of everyone. 6 hours a day, 5 days a week. Students do not participate at all except for some voluntary work that raises a point or two in the grade.
Of course, seniority also extends to anything involving administration. If you want to know your results, you have to go in-person to a board. And don’t expect them to send you a mail. Most professors look like they have never touched a pc in their life.
Many of the academics are good speakers (thank goodness). But there are also terrible ones, and in general, all the brilliance and dedication they show to their research work is matched by a total neglect of their students. At this university no one will care about you.
As a bonus, if you are an Erasmus student who does not speak Spanish well, you can be sure that you will pass with a good score because the professors will give you a free pass.View more
You can expect to find great opportunities coming to this university. Professors with impressive backgrounds, top-level projects are held at the university and exchange programs can be done with many top European universities. Regarding the courses, the problem is that information is not always clear and we usually rely on previous students’ notes and solved exercises to find the information. Exams are hard and passing subjects with 5/10 is already a success. Student life is poor due to the high workload. Only a few courses are taught in English and in them, translated material is not always available. However, overall, I must say that work pays off and a wide professional range opens when studies are finished.View more
I studied for my bachelor’s in aerospace engineering at the Engineering school of the University of Sevilla. It was the worst experience of my life. Professors are exceptionally good at their field however they are lousy teachers. They try to increase their ego thinking that as more student fails their subject the better professors they are. It is not strange to fail the same subject for 3 consecutive years.
Of course, this is my personal experience and I do not know about other faculties. But in general, I think It is an old-fashioned university, with old school professors that need to modernize their teaching methods. In general, the teaching program is super theoretical with so few practice sessions. Thus once you finish your studies you have 0 knowledge about the real world of work. Moreover is very common to have a feeling of inferiority because during a lot of years you have failed every single exam or you have heard how professors insulted you and laughed at you.
It is also weird that you can finish your bachelor’s without expending extra years on that university. Something that is very profitable for the university itself because every year that you have to register to a subject that you have fails you have to pay double of taxes than the previous year.
As a result, you acquire a huge knowledge about lots of different fields thus you become a great professional but not thanks to the university nor their professors but because of the huge amount of time that you will invest in the library or looking for understandable notes in Wuolah. However not everything is bad, your classmates will help you always giving you material that will help you to survive in that place.
Moreover, the location of the university is not so good since is isolated from the rest of the city so there are no bars or shops around. However, Sevilla is a wonderful city that I truly love. People are always friendly and welcoming. The weather is great so sitting in a Terraza is amazing at any season. Bars are also good and cheap and in conclusion, Sevilla is a very comfortable city to live in.View more
I’m studying the Master’s just as a result of circumstances but it was never my plan. I studied the Bachelor’s some years ago and it was a nightmare. The Master’s is a little bit better since you can choose different subjects and avoid some problems.
Attending lessons is not worth it, professors are highly experienced investigators but most of them have no vocation as a teacher: Wuolah will be your best friend if you decide to study here. Apart from that, subjects are developed as a sum of projects, exams and practices, thus you need to be 100% time student and a high compromise: forget to combine studies and work if your goal is getting the title in 2 years.
If you want to know my opinion about the city, it is just the best place you can live. I would like a good job here (what it is difficult if we compare it with Europe) and I live in Sevilla forever. People are great, the weather is amazing, you can find a lot culture offer, you can go for a walk on Guadalquivir bank…View more
I studied the bachelor’s degree and part of the master’s degree in aerospace engineering at the Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingeniería and, after all these years, I can say that although I have learned a lot, they have been some of the hardest years of my life. Choosing this university depends on what you are willing to sacrifice to pass the exams.View more
Do you feel like you want to be laughed at, to go the most far away location possible in the city, to fight against people that don’t like teaching but refuse to leave, and with no campus life outside the library? Well, then this is your place. At least you can make friends.View more
The teaching has allowed me to grow professionally but I consider the classes and the lecturers selection quite deficient. Professors are selected in terms of the research they can provide instead of the teaching quality.View more
