Internship program in Spain is one of the best ways to explore what job you might like to choose after university. An internship in Spain will not only build your CV and language skills, it will give you a first hand look at the worlds of work and everyday life in Spain.
During your internship, we're with you every step of the way. You'll have weekly meetings with our internship team from the first week you arrive, to define your area of interest, develop your Spanish CV and practice with you in mock interviews.
We consider giving you the most realistic experience possible an essential part of the program. Entrance requirements are high, admission is competitive, and a high level of classroom and job performance is expected.
The internship program includes the following:
- An Intensive Spanish course at Spanish language schools in Barcelona, Granda, Madrid, Salamanca, Seville, Tenerife and Valencia: A minimum duration of the Spanish course is 4 weeks. To participate in the internship program, you must have an advanced level of Spanish (B2) on completion of this Spanish course.
- The internship placement period for 2 months in your chosen sector in Madrid, Barcelona, Salamanca or Seville.
If you already have a good knowledge of general Spanish and you are more concerned about your ability to keep up with business-specific vocabulary and communication during your internship, you can combine 2 weeks of study in a General Spanish Intensive course with 2 weeks in our Business Spanish Intensive course, and learn business-specific communication during part of your 4-week preparatory course.

The most important factor is Spanish language skills: the more limited the student's language abilities, the flexible s/he will have to be in terms of placements. We try very hard to match the student's educational background, professional experience, and professional plans, to the internship placement. We contact the student with one or more possibilities, and descriptions of those internships, and ask the student for comments and to rank the possibilities in order of preference. This helps us ensure appropriate placement. The interviews can take place during the time the student is studying in Barcelona. All Internship Placements are subject to availability.
