Our Intern in Barcelona program lets you gain relevant, career-oriented experience while enjoying the best of Europe: cultural immersion, proximity to a coastline of white sand beaches, and an exciting, cosmopolitan city that never sleeps.
Your internship in Barcelona offers both professional development and the chance to soak up all that Barcelona has to offer. Our internships are customized to match your interests; internships last a minimum of 6 weeks, but we encourage you to stay as long as you can.
Pristine white-sand beaches – Barcelona’s beaches and boardwalks are a main attraction. The city enjoys a Mediterranean climate whose mild winters and hot summers make a visit to the beach perfect any time of the year.
Live and work in Barcelona: life in the cultural capital of the Mediterranean – The café culture, boutiques, tapas restaurants, and world-famous nightlife are enough to keep you busy for a semester. Barcelona is home to more UNESCO World Heritage sites than any other city in Europe. Imagine the architectural and cultural splendor of a city with 2,000 years of history! Numerous museums, churches, cathedrals, and concert halls, plus the influential modern art of Antonio Gaudi, Joan Miro, Pablo Picasso, and Mies Van der Rohe, make Barcelona an aesthetically appealing destination for visitors from all over the world.
