  • Overview

    The Internship Program in Educational Centres is aimed at university students and professionals interested in broadening their studies through professional internships in a wide range of educational centres.

    Student participation in the Internship Program in educational centres has a double objective: to learn how the Spanish educational institution works, benefiting from interaction with the teaching teams and the centre’s pupils, and the centres benefit from the collaboration and involvement of these interns in the classes taught in the corresponding foreign language.

    Before starting the internship, students will attend a 10-hour seminar where they will learn about general aspects of the Spanish educational system (educational levels, special needs teaching, types of centres, bilingual program, etc.) whilst receiving a small training session on designing activities which they can then use during their internship.

    - 30% of the final grade is assessed from the students’ attention, participation and attendance in the group seminars and individual interviews. The idea is to motivate the student to think, develop arguments, discuss their ideas with their fellow interns and the teacher and also, to use and practice the Spanish language.
    - 30% of the final grade is obtained from the outside tutor’s report on the work carried out at the educational institution.
    The remaining 40% will depend on the results obtained in the project students must present in writing and orally at the end of the course.
