My host parents are patient when it comes to holding conversations which has really paid off in relation to my Spanish; we talk politics, culture, and just simply joke around during delicious homemade meals, they've really become apart of my family in my eyes and I love calling their place my home.

Internships for Alicante, Spain

USAC internships are rich resources for your academic and professional development particularly in your study abroad setting. USAC internships are considered courses and count as part of your credit load. They can be time-consuming, but are very worthwhile. Students are placed in a Spanish-speaking environment, with high exposure to culture and language, and must be able to communicate at an advanced language level. Interns earn credits but no financial compensation. The schedule and the number of work hours will be determined by the schedule of USAC courses. Internship opportunities fall into broad categories; USAC will attempt to place students in a field related to the student’s interest. Example placements include:

  • Hotels
  • Tourist Office
  • Travel Agencies
  • Teaching at Local Schools
  • Infant/Preschool
  • Accountancy
  • Libraries
  • Marketing
  • Museums
  • Movie Studios
  • NGOs
  • International Development
  • Assistance for Physically and Mentally Disabled
  • Tutoring for Disadvantaged Youth
  • Gyms
  • Local Businesses
You are encouraged to request any field of interest and the Alicante program will try its best to find a suitable position for you.

Eligibility—registration in Track IV, enrollment in the Alicante program, a minimum GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, and junior standing at the time of the internship. USAC organizes the internships in close cooperation with the University of Alicante; the university charges 200 EUR for this service and for insurance. However, if the internship is related to teaching in a local school, this fee will not be charged
