UK Faculty-Directed: Teaching English as a Second Language in Spain (Arts & Sciences) (Outgoing Program) Featured:
- Locations: Seville, Spain
- Program Terms: Summer
- Program Cost and Budget: Summer
Participants are trained to teach English before leaving. There are two obligatory orientation meetings and four optional curriculum meetings. The two orientation meetings are 1) Living in Spain (Student expectations) and 2) Spanish customs (Target culture expectations).
Participants will have teaching placements from 9:00-1:00 Monday through Thursday with free days or planned excursions Friday through Sunday. Most days, student participants will also meet with the program director to discuss their teaching strengths and areas for further teaching improvement.
This program is open to graduate students from all academic disciplines, although students with a background in Spanish studies or students wishing to pursue teaching English as a second language will find the program particularly appealing. Undergraduate students may apply only if they are seniors nearing graduation at the time of their application and with the permission of the Program Director.
For more information on how to apply to the University of Kentucky as a visiting student, go to UK Graduate School Admissions. Non-UK students should consult with the program director prior to applying to ensure that they have the proper academic background for the course.
UK Faculty-Directed programs are conducted by University of Kentucky faculty and staff. UK GPA credits and grades will be awarded by the program director for the successful and timely completion of all required program activities and assignments, including any required on-campus meetings before or after the program's international travel.
Students will reside in homestays for the duration of the program in Seville. On the overnight excursion to Granada, students will reside in a hotel. Three meals per day will be provided in the homestay in Seville, and in Granada, breakfast and lunch will be provided, but students will be responsible for the cost of all other meals on their own.
Costs and cancellation policies vary by program. Please see the "Program Cost and Budget" information page. Be sure to consider the associated UK costs, program specifications, and related travel expenses.
