Universidad Pablo de Olavide, Spain


Seville is a dream destination in Andalusia. The capital of Andalusia, Seville is one of the few cities in South Europe where spring can be felt so early. In February already, you can feel the spring sun, in March, the temperatures already rise to more than 20 degrees. The history of Seville goes all the way back in time. According to the legend, the Greek hero Hercules founded the city of Seville. Seville is interesting especially for students, because the life of the people of Seville happens outside. Bullfighting and Flamencos can be found here. With more than 3000 bars, restaurants and bodegas it is never boring for students. Seville has beautiful sights like the cathedral Santa Maria de la Sede, the cathedral is one of the biggest churches in the world. Especially for students, Seville is an unforgettable and lively city.

Application Process

We have an ERASMUS partnership with the UPO and a certain number of exchange places per semester. The ERASMUS application procedure consists of two steps:

Step 1: Application at the EBC University

You apply to us for a place at university and for the ERASMUS scholarship. Please register at the International Office and hand in the following documents:

  • Letter of motivation in English (one page maximum); include up to two alternative ERASMUS partners in the last paragraph of your cover letter, in which you would be interested if we had to cancel your first request.
  • Performance record of the EBC University (via the virtual campus)

The best applications will be selected from all applicants of the EBC University, it includes academic achievements, language skills and the quality of your motivation letter, in which you show that you have dealt with your desired university.

We will inform the successful students by email and ask them to explicitly accept their place. If you accept the place, we will nominate you at the partner university and only then will you apply with the regular application documents for the university, see step 2.

If you have received a rejection, you will automatically be placed in the procedure for moving up to the alternative universities of your choice or we will try to offer you an alternative. We will then send you an offer by email. Once you have accepted the offer, we will nominate you with the partner and only then will you apply to this university with the appropriate documents (see step 2 below).

Step 2: Application to the UPO

After the EBC University has nominated you at the UPO and you have received an e-mail from the UPO accepting the nomination, you must apply to the host university. You will probably need the following documents:

  • Application form
  • Passport photo
  • Passport copy
  • Proof of performance
  • Language certificate

The host university also reserves the right to decide on admission. You will receive further information on your registration from the UPO after your admission.

The following information is subject to change, as visa requirements may change. Before applying for a visa, be sure to visit the website of the Spanish authorities responsible and find out about the exact and current conditions!

Citizens of EU member states do not need a visa to enter Spain. All other countries must apply for a visa before departure in order to enter Spain. This can be applied for at the Spanish Embassy or Consulate of your home country.

For citizens of countries outside the European Union, there are different types of residence permits, which mainly differ according to the purpose and duration of entry. For example, a tourist visa cannot easily be converted into a student visa. It is also forbidden to stay in Spain on a tourist visa and study in Spain at the same time.

We recommend an early application, as experience has shown that the processing time can be quite long and documents with Spanish translation may be required.
