The Office of Experiential Learning expects to provide an option for students interested in obtaining practical knowledge and work experience outside the USA through the creation of an 8 ½ week internship in Madrid, Spain for credit at UCF.
These internships are an excellent opportunity for participants to gain real-life experience within intended career fields while developing and practicing the skills needed to become successful professionals. The internship abroad brings new cultures and places to the student’s experience and provides the opportunity to develop new skills of cross-cultural communication and adaptation.
Participants in this program will register for a minimum of 3 credit hours of internship courses at UCF. The specific course work will be administered through UCF Experiential Learning, unless your college or department requires direct supervision of your program.
Students will be evaluated through both a combination of hands-on working with company placement and by documenting cultural experiences and reflection.
Participants will need to demonstrate language proficiency in Spanish equivalent to the skills achieved at the end of fifth semester college level Spanish prior to acceptance.
Students on this program should plan to arrive by noon on the starting day of the program in order to be in country to transfer to accommodations. Check flights carefully before booking. To arrive by noon on the starting day of this program, flights must depart the USA the day before the start of the program.
