Health and Safety

In this section, you will find tips and guidelines to avoid safety issues while you are studying abroad in Seville and what to do to seek assistance in case you get sick.

Further information will be provided during the H&S orientation session upon arrival.   For any doubts, do not hesitate to contact the CEA staff at or personally at the front desk of the CEA center.

CEA Seville provides an emergency number for use outside regular office hours that is intended to help students in genuinely troubling matters such as serious concerns about health and personal safety.
This emergency number is not manned by an outside contractor; It will be answered by a member of the CEA Seville team (who carries on with his/her normal routine while on call). It is therefore very important that you ONLY call the emergency number in the event of a real emergency. Our team in Seville will be happy to help you with non-emergency health and other issues during regular office hours.

Seville is relatively safe but, like in other cities, you may encounter safety problems. We recommend you to be careful, keep a low profile and blend in as much as you can.

Use common sense and don’t do anything you wouldn’t do back home. It is important to keep your passport in a safe place. We strongly urge you to only carry a photocopy unless you have to travel somewhere.
When sitting in a café, never leave your bag on the floor or on the back of a chair (keep it on your lap). In crowed areas hold your bag tightly in your arms. Do not leave your luggage, bags, backpacks or purses unattended at anytime. Wear shoulder bags pulled to the front, not on your back.
Do not bring any valuables or money with you when you go to the beach Remember to always lock the door (turn the key) and shut the windows every time you leave the apartment
Do not get in cars with strangers or go to stranger’s houses. Never walk home alone late at night.

Carry with you at all times the CEA emergency card and use these resources:
