1. The number of Study Abroad & Erasmus+ students increased in EUSA in the fall intake. (September 2021)
The impact of the vaccine in terms of confidence is undeniable. Spain holds one of the world largest vaccination rates registering over 78.9% of its population with two doses of the vaccine.
As a result, EUSA University Centre received 183 students this semester that started classes on Monday 20th under the Study Abroad, Erasmus+ and other formats. Unfortunately, the regions of Asia and North America are still finding difficulties to fly to Europe due to covid-19 restrictions.

2. Latin American students prefer Spain.
Due to the latest migration moves of the USA and the UK exit of Europe, Spain became the best option for Spanish speaking countries in South and Central America.
The number of applications for full degrees in EUSA multiplied in the beginning of 2019 and even though they got cut due to Covid, it started over during the summer 2021 and is expected to increase for the academic year 2022/2023.
3. As many Spanish speakers in Spain as… in the USA!
With a total population of 47M inhabitants, Spain will be very soon overtaken by the USA in terms of Spanish speakers – currently 45M -. Spanish is the top 2 native languages in the world with around 483M speakers. Also, more than 97M use it as a second language.
The Spanish Language School in EUSA accredited by Instituto Cervantes is just one more reason to choose EUSA Sevilla as a destination for semester students.
