Why study an internship abroad?
An internship is a perfect complement to your studies and in some cases, it’s a necessary part of your degree or course.

And why not choose to do it in Spain?
Here are our top reasons why studying an internship in Spain can make a big difference, not only professionally but personally too!
Hands on experience
Undoubtedly one of the best reasons to do an internship is to gain practical experience in your field. If you do have a career path in mind and you already have some experience in your own country, then why not see how this field operates in Spain? It can broaden your horizons and definitely make a difference to your education and global awareness!
Boost your CV
With an international internship to your name, employers will take note and it can set you apart from the crowd. It definitely shows you are unafraid to move out of your comfort zone and try something new. What’s more, you’ll have better employment opportunities if businesses are looking for global progression or looking for somebody with more to offer!
Working abroad brings with it the opportunity to meet a lot of people, from many countries. Valencia in particular is a city with a big international network when it comes to business.
