Internships for Valencia, Spain
Internships in Valencia are offered during the summer, semester, and yearlong terms. Those interested in doing a summer internship must attend both summer sessions. Summer internships are limited and earn only one credit.
Internships are optional and included in your program fees. They range from 1-3 credits and are counted as part of your academic credit load. Interns earn credit, but no financial compensation. In addition to professional and academic experience, internships are a great way to immerse yourself in the culture, meet locals, and practice your language skills. Working in a non-English speaking environment requires the ability to communicate at an advanced language level.

USAC will attempt to place students in a field related to the student's interest.

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.
