SAIIE is proudly partnered with the EUSA University which is affiliated to the University of Sevilla, to offer an internship program for those who are studying abroad with us. This program has been carefully designed with the objective to prepare our students for their future after university.  

Our students will be completely immersed in a Spanish working environment, which will aid in developing new working skills, cultural intelligence, networking and lastly, improve their Spanish. 

Through the internship program students will complete a total of 12 credits in a semester.

Option 1
As part of this program as well, our students who choose the 6 credit Internship, will need to take a Business course at EUSA and a Spanish Language course at SAIIE.

Option 2
For those who choose the 3 credit Internship, will need to take two Business courses at EUSA and a Spanish Language course at SAIIE.

The Spanish Language course is designed to help and improve the student's Spanish that will be used during their internship.
