Summer Spanish Language and Information Technology Internship Program in Seville, Spain

Seville, Spain

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Now you can learn Spanish while performing a six week summer internship in the IT field in Seville, Spain! This is a new program and NO knowledge of Spanish is required. Why? Because the developers we work with can also speak English. GlobalEd provides work immersion experiences relevant to your academic background and personal interests combined with Spanish language classes and professional development training where you will learn to increase your marketability, work better in teams and become a more effective leader. Obtaining up to 6 transferrable credits for this program (3 credits for Spanish and 3 credits for the internship) is possible through two academic institutions that we work with. The Escuela Universitaria Superior de Andalucia (EUSA) is a branch institution of the University of Seville and collaborates to GlobalEd to recognize the academic component of the internship during our summer programs awarded the equivalent of 3 credits on a graded transcript. The Centro de Lenguas e Intercambio Cultural (CLIC) is an language center accredited by the Instituto Cervantes and provides intensive Spanish language training in weekly increments. Transcripting fees may apply.
