Put your knowledge to work! Our internship program provides a unique opportunity to not only practice a high-register Spanish in a professional setting, but also to gain first-hand experience of the Spanish labor atmosphere. You will acquire working experience in a field related to your area of study or interest. By carefully selecting the institutions where you will be placed, together with a close on-site supervision and evaluation, we ensure that you will have a matchless experience.
Internships are typically offered during both semesters to qualified students.
Like all other GRIIS courses, internships are graded and accredited by the Centro de Lenguas Modernas of the University of Granada. Grades will be obtained based on: the on-site work performance (40%); academic paper (30%); and meetings with the director, regular attendance at the internship and other relevant issues (30%). Students are responsible for obtaining prior approval of the internship plan from their Home Institutions in order to ensure transfer of credits.
Internships in a variety of fields such as education, law, politics, international relations, health care, and other fields are possible. We will make every effort to accomodate the needs of students of interested in areas not listed above.

GRIIS programs are targeted to highly motivated students and designed to reach the goal of academic excellence. All studies are therefore rigorous and demanding, but we provide the adequate atmosphere to ensure your success and to make your stay in Spain a truly enjoyable learning experience. Daily supervision and guidance by GRIIS staff, individual tutoring classes, weekly small meetings and living with select families are key elements of the program. We expect hard work from students, but leave everything else in our hands. Please, click on the links above for individual program descriptions.
