Our Summer Internships in Spain program provides a unique opportunity to live and gain professional experience in the beautiful coastal city of La Coruña, Spain! You’ll find yourself fully immersed in the Spanish language and culture as you’ll both live and work with Spanish speakers daily.
Requirements/Necessary Skills for Recruitment:
We place participants in an internship which is relevant to their major and in line with their learning objectives. All interns earn academic credit from the Universidade Da Coruña for their internship and take a Spanish language course (intermediate or higher) or Business Spanish to take in addition to their internship during a 5 or 10 week stay over the Summer. Internships are usually Monday-Friday in the morning hours while classes are given Mon-Wednesday in the afternoons. Click Here to Apply Nowfor the summer internships in Spain program.
Why La Coruña? La Coruña is a breathtaking coastal city in the lush region of Galicia offering beautiful beaches, delicious tapas bars, fresh seafood, and great nightlife! It’s also one of the best cities in Spain to learn Spanish as it allows for complete immersion in the Spanish language. Beyond our group, it’s very unlikely that you’ll run into other Americans or native English speakers. In more touristy Spanish cities, there are many English speakers which can make learning Spanish more difficult. If you’re looking for the best place to improve your Spanish while enjoying lively Spanish life, on a budget, La Coruña is the city to choose. Don’t take it from us, read about what our former students say about our Summer Internships in Spain! Christina from BIOLA and Hans from Loyola Marymount.
