We strongly recommended that you apply as soon as possible. Internship positions are selective; students who demonstrate both professionalism and commitment throughout the process are most successful in securing placements.
The placement process involves three video interviews: a screening interview with your Internship Coach, a job placement interview with your study center placement coordinator, and a final interview with your host site supervisor. The host site retains the final decision regarding placements, so it’s important that your interviews reflect your maturity, adaptability, curiosity, and commitment to both your career interests and the host organization. Upon successfully completing your study center placement coordinator interview, CEA guarantees you a placement based on the personal, professional, and cross-cultural goals reflected in your interview. All placements will be secured two weeks prior to arrival.
Upon placement, you’ll automatically be enrolled in your internship course. Prior to departure, you will be asked to also select your preferred courses and take a language placement exam. If you choose to take a Spanish language or elective course at our partner institution, you will take another language placement exam on-site. You will be enrolled into courses based on their availability. It is in your best interest to have multiple alternative courses approved by your home university prior to your departure due to course availabilities. To ensure that you receive credit for the language level you place into, have your home school pre-approve courses at several levels before you leave for Spain. Please consult with your academic advisor at your home university on credit pre-approval guidelines.
The following courses have been confirmed for this term. Please note, the host institution reserves the right to cancel or change courses without prior notification.

Get out and explore! Excursions are offered for most semester, year, and summer programs*. Semester students are typically offered between two to three excursions and summer study students are typically offered between one to two excursions. You'll receive a calendar of excursions during orientation; here are a few day and overnight excursions we've offered in the past.
Explore the colorful fusion of cultures and long, rich history of Córdoba. Once one of Europe’s most important capitals, the city has long been a melting pot of cultural influences where Muslims, Christians, and Jews co-existed peacefully. This small Andalusian city is full of iconic monuments, like the Mezquita, the Great Mosque of Córdoba, and the old Jewish quarter, home to the 1315 synagogue (one of only three left in Spain.) Córdoba has produced many influential philosophers, scientists, and artists, as well as a lively tradition of flamenco dancing.
The northwestern tip of Africa is just 10 miles from Andalusia. Make this short continental crossing to discover the intercultural complexities, unique beauty, and mystery of northern Morocco. You’ll love exploring the whitewashed streets and buzzing activity of life in the medinas, the traditional city centers that are today’s commercial hubs.
Experience centuries of fascinating history as you navigate the cobblestone streets perched atop the seven hills of Lisbon, Portugal. History and tradition come to life as you tour sites like St. George’s Castle and Belem Tower and take in a live Fado musical performance. Contrast this historic charm with the city’s fashionable, cosmopolitan vibe, evident in foodie-worthy restaurants and designer night clubs that attract university students and beautiful people from all over the continent. 21st century architecture and feats of engineering define the 1998 World Exposition sites. You'll love discovering Lisbon's breathtaking sights and enjoying the nearby beach resorts around its coast.
Tarifa & Baelo Claudia
This day trip allows you to experience three distinct and influential cultures as you explore the European continent's gateway to Africa. Highlights of the day include a guided visit to the wonderfully preserved Roman ruins of Baelo Claudia, an opportunity to shop (or window shop) in a medina-style-meets-design-boutique neighborhood, and relax and enjoy one of the most beautiful beaches on the Spain's Atlantic coast.
