Program Overview

Program Description:
AIDE Abroad’s international internships in Spain offer participants the opportunity to gain experience and develop employability skills in a global context. Furthermore, participants may be eligible to receive academic credit for their international internship with AIDE Abroad. AIDE Abroad believes that this access to experiential learning develops intercultural competence, as well as tolerance and understanding of circumstances and societies that are different from our own. Our aim is to build a worldwide community of global citizens who will be part of an ongoing intercultural conversation. Welcome aboard, and we hope that you enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime experience. Participants are placed in an internship that is customized according to their field of study, professional experience, and Spanish language skills.

Our international internships in Spain provide currently-enrolled university students and recent graduates the chance to gain valuable professional experience in a country that displays its European modernity against the backdrop of a rich history and varied culture. Founded in 1180, historic San Sebastian is located on the Atlantic Coast of Spain’s Basque Country. Situated on the Bay of Biscay, the city offers examples of architecture from the last thousand years and a contrasting landscape of beaches and mountains.
