Sweet Briar College JYS in Seville

Program Overview

Since 1983, the JYS in Seville has been offering an exceptional language immersion program to the top students from colleges and universities around the United States. Open to all majors, students choose courses from the prestigious University of Seville.

This coeducational program offers students the opportunity to build their Spanish language skills in a strong academic environment. Their skills are put to the test both in and outside of the classroom with the majority of JYS students participate in internships and volunteering.

Our students live with carefully selected host families, sharing meals and holidays with them. This experience increases language acquisition and appreciation for day-to-day life.

As a small program, JYS accommodates individual needs and supports student initiatives to explore their new surroundings.
