Internships are a key part of your education. Acquiring experience and putting into practice what you have learned during your degree is the best way to enter the employment market. There are two types of internship: curricular (which are included as part of your program) and extracurricular (which you can do on a voluntary basis).
In order to carry out an internship in a company, you’ll need to have passed 50% of your credits and register before you start the internship. Both the company and a professor on your course will monitor your progress on the internship and provide you with an evaluation at the half-way mark and upon completion.
If you want to gain extra work experience before finalising your university studies, you are welcome to carry out extracurricular internships. You can carry them out in whichever year of your studies you choose, but we remind you that internships are formative and should complement your studies. The more theoretical knowledge you have acquired throughout your degree, the more you will benefit from the internships.
Experience: the key to success for our graduates
At Universidad Europea de Madrid, internships are a fundamental part of your degree, so you will start interning right from day one. In addition, we have agreements in place with the best public and private entities.

Some of our partners include: the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation, UNHCR, the Red Cross, Greenpeace, Repsol, the Vicente Ferrer Foundation, Agencia EFE, UNICEF and BBVA.
During the last year of your studies, you will complete a mandatory internship in public and private institutions such as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the European Union, esglobal, Acción Contra el Hambre, the Helsinki Foundation and World Vision. During this internship, you will put into practice everything you have learned throughout your studies and strengthen skills such as teamwork, leadership and adaptability.
The London School of Economics, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, esglobal, the Elcano Royal Institute, Agencia EFE and UNICEF are just some of the institutions where you could intern. Many of these organisations are also represented on campus as faculty professors, ensuring you learn from individuals with real-world experience.
