Internships are a key component of your training. Acquiring experience after what you have learnt in your degree is the best way to enter the employment market. There are two types of internships: curricular—which are included in your study plan—and extracurricular—which you can do on a voluntary basis.

In order to complete curricular internships in companies, you will need to have 50% of the credits approved and registered before starting your internship. These internships are monitored by the company and the internship coordinator, and interim and final reports are prepared for evaluation.

If you want to take your work experience to the next level before finishing your university education, you can pursue an extracurricular internship. You can do them in any academic year, but keep in mind that internships are a formative complement to your studies; therefore, the more knowledge you have acquired throughout your studies, the more you will benefit from the internship experience.

Professional Internships

Curricular internships in leading companies. Internships start in the third year of your bachelor’s, either in Spain or abroad. Many of our students opted for internships in destinations such as Switzerland, South Korea, Poland, Germany, Belgium, Costa Rica, etc. The placement of our students in an internship is determined by the Bachelor’s Academic Coordinators and depends on the profile of the student, their academic results and the requirements set by the establishments themselves. In this way, we can guarantee the success of the internship and ensure students are well prepared for their professional career.

  • Andersen Tax & Legal
