What you need to know

The program details

This program is designed to help students expand their Spanish vocabulary, immerse themselves linguistically and professionally in a new culture, and gain practical, on-the-job experience. Students take an intensive Advanced Spanish course during the first four weeks while they intern part-time. During the last four weeks of the program, students focus solely on the internship, completing 100-120 hours of on-site work in total.

While the internship is considered part-time by academic standards, students will feel like a full-time intern during the second half of the program and gain hands-on internship experience. The internship is complemented by academic work, and weekly seminars on topics such as public speaking and leadership.

Students intern in a local company. Projects have included: helping to improve logistics and customer relations; building finance reports in Excel; analyzing competitors; developing marketing plans; auditing local companies; and more.

The internship selection process accounts for each student’s language ability, job skills, background, and professional attitude. Students’ internship placements will be confirmed in advance of traveling. Because local firms make final selections, internships in a particular company are not guaranteed.

CIEE Seville is located in a beautifully renovated palace, originally built in 1725, close to the Royal Alcazar Palace, and a 10-minute walk from the Universidad de Seville. CIEE Seville includes classrooms, a computer room, student services, and the Language Resource Center.

Prior to departure for Seville, all program participants take a CIEE Seville online placement exam (OLPT). Results provide on-site language instructors with additional information about student’s linguistic skills and background. 

Students complete their internship seminar and placement in Spanish. Students agree to speak only Spanish to encourage language and cultural acquisition.
