The Spanish Institute for Global Education, established in 1982, offers learning programmes for students and professionals in Sevilla. The offer proposed by SIGE includes academic studies, Spanish lessons, teacher courses, internship programmes and holiday courses. In addition, students can take advantage of the school’s cultural attractions, excursions and services related to finding accommodation.

Proposed programmes:
A semester or academic year at SIGE University offers international students the opportunity to study at 3 universities located in Sevilla:
– Universidad de Sevilla: courses for Spanish students are open at the same time to foreign students with an intermediate level of Spanish (B1 or B2, depending on the chosen field);
– Universidad Pablo de Olavide (UPO): the study programme includes Hispanic studies and is intended for students who wish to continue their studies at their home university. The courses are conducted at an advanced level of Spanish, but those with a lower proficiency in Spanish can find a wide range of English classes for themselves.
– EUSA: this private university offers about 30 different courses (Human Resources, Business, Cultural Studies, Languages and History) in Spanish and English.
Spanish language courses
The courses at the SIGE Institute are characterised by rapid progress in the use of the language; their aim is to allow free communication and encourage thinking in a foreign language. The courses are conducted in a friendly manner, at different levels, based on speaking, active participation and involvement of students, and the grammar is learned in a natural way.
The types of classes available are:
– conversation and communication classes
– Spain today
– development of writing skills
– history and culture
Courses (at the student’s request) can be conducted to prepare for the DELE exam.
The SIGE internship programmes offer a wide range of internships and apprenticeships in companies in areas such as: social work, health care, education, marketing, business, journalism, tourism, sports education, non-profit and international organizations.
Programmes lasting 2 weeks or 1 month, in the form of an intensive course (2.5 hours of classes/day) or a “language immersion”, during which you become part of the daily life of a Spanish family.
Teacher training courses
The Teaching Assistant Programme TAP5C* covers the needs and demands of today’s educational world. Many Spanish educational centres have already started to implement bilingual and multilingual programmes for their students. What is more, in order to improve their Spanish proficiency and to foster their professional development, more and more graduates decide to come to Spain.
