The university is located in the center of the city next to the prestigious Hotel Alfonso XIII, which hosted Europe’s royalty and many an international celebrity. The University of Seville is rich in history and is considered as one of the most significant cultural centers in Spain. Some of the university’s pride includes independence, self-government and most importantly, its ability to provide a public amenity at such a high standard because of the caliber of the lecturers, staff and professors that work there. The university’s motivation is being reflected in their ancient motto with the four qualities that the university lives by: Equality, Liberty, Justice and Pluralism. This motto applies to both learning and teaching and most especially to the progress made in science, technology and culture. Nowadays, the main aim of the University of Seville is to continue with the innovations developed in technological and scientific fields as they look towards the future with an exciting new perspective.
These aim are best reflected by the number of students attending the Universidad de Sevilla and the number of degrees offered – students have the choice of 65 different subjects – and one of the widest ranges of academic and sporting facilities in Spain, thus making it a very popular university for both Spanish and international students.
