Internships for Alicante, Spain

Due to heightened concerns about student health and safety we are immediately suspending internship placements, volunteer work, and service-learning projects in health care facilities at all USAC program sites for the remainder of the Spring 2020 and Summer 2020 academic terms. We will continue to monitor the situation and make a decision regarding the availability of these placements during the Fall 2020 semester in the coming weeks. If you have any questions, please contact the USAC internship team at internship@usac.edu.

Internships in Alicante are offered during the semester and yearlong terms. Internships are optional and are included in your program fees. They range from 1-3 credits and are counted as part of your credit load. Interns earn credit, but no financial compensation. In addition to professionl and academic experience, internships are a great way to immerse yourself in the culture, meet locals, and practice your language skills. You will be placed in a Spanish-speaking environment, with high exposure to culture and language, and must be able to communicate at an advanced language level.

Past internship placements in Alicante have included:

  • Hotels
  • Tourist Office
  • Travel Agencies
  • Teaching at Local Schools
  • Infant/Preschool
  • Accountancy

  • Museums
  • Movie Studios
  • NGOs
  • International Development
  • Assistance for Physically and Mentally Disabled
  • Tutoring for Disadvantaged Youth

You are encouraged to request any field of interest and the Alicante program will try its best to find a suitable position for you.

Eligibility:

  • Minimum 3.0 GPA

A $200 refundable fee is charged and returned upon successful completion of the internship. Placement is not guaranteed by USAC; rather it will be determined by your application, supporting materials, and an interview with the internship sponsor on site.
