Welcome Week

As most students arrive in Seville feeling somewhat jet-lagged and often a bit disoriented, the ICS organizes a first week of fun activities geared to get everyone introduced to the city of Seville, to their stay in Spain, to their classmates & friends of the next few months and, at the same time, offer a truly pleasant and memorable first week in town

On the day after the student group arrival, a thorough Orientation session is given at the ICS in which different members of faculty discuss academics, housing, and all kinds of information useful for helping you to be prepared for your semester abroad. After Orientation, a breakfast buffet is set up and it is then, over coffee, croissants and a whole array of tasty foods, that you will get to know your classmates, professors and faculty.


Each day of Welcome Weekend has something new and exciting for our new students. In the morning, you are taken on two different walks downtown where you will be shown some of the most historic sights and monuments Seville has to offer. Friday ́s walk includes a  stop for a typical Andalusian breakfast of “tostada con café” at a quaint coffee bar in the historic neighborhood of Triana.

Saturday’s walk includes a stop for a bite of delicious “churros” with thick and rich hot chocolate. Each walk is approximately two hours long and you will enjoy not only the lively activity of downtown Seville, but will learn how to move about in your new city.

The ICS night activities are just as entertaining as the morning ones, if not more! You will meet us downtown to see the best Flamenco show in Seville at “El Museo del Baile Flamenco”. It is a night to remember of Flamenco singing, guitar-playing and absolutely mesmerizing dancing!

Sunday is a Free Day!  You can sleep in, discover the city on your own, or make a day trip to any one of the many fascinating and beautiful towns or beaches nearby!

No Welcome Week would be complete without our one-hour River Cruise down the Guadalquivir. With lots of food, beverages, and music on board private luxury boats, a relaxing and enjoyable time is guaranteed!  It is always a delightful and amusing evening of trying new foods, seeing sites and forging friendships.

To complete our week of activities we organize a shopping excursion to the mall of Metromar, in the town of Mairena del Aljarafe.  Not only can you take advantage of the shop sales and discover a new part of town, but by going by metro, you will learn how to use the public transportation system.  All in all, it’s always a fun evening.

Every semester the ICS organizes these activities for new students and all activities are free of charge.

By the end of Welcome Week you will feel more than welcome in Seville. You will feel at home!
