Frequently Asked Questions

Intern in Barcelona

Barcelona gets all the glory: capital European city on the beach; famous for cutting edge art, impossible architecture and Las Ramblas; and for a while there, home to the Best Restaurant on the Planet - El Bulli (think we are kidding? Check out this case study about the place from Harvard Business School) So, you get the picture - a Diva of a city and a place very used to being #1. 

The International Internship Program Adelante Abroad provides in this city has been running for over 10 years now.  It is a strong program base, and it is quite different from any of our other programs precisely for the reasons mentioned above. The candidates who will do the best in this program are independent, solution-oriented and looking for less hand-holding. Our experienced, professional Adelante Director for this program was born and raised in Barcelona, a true “Barceloni”.  

This is what makes Adelante's program better and different:

  1. Compare prices. Apples to apples, our International Internship programs - in ALL cities, not just Barcelona - are the most economical you are going to find.
  2. The amount of time you choose to intern is flexible, with program lengths ranging from 1 to 6 months, all begin the first Monday of the month, year round. Or take advantage of our mid-May start date to beat the summer crowds!

  3. Academic credit can be received for this Program.  
  4. 2 weeks of intensive Spanish language classes are included in the fee
  5. Lodging is included. Candidates have their own room in an apartment living with a Spanish owner; often times Adelante will rent more than one room. This is NOT a "home stay" or family living situation, rather a single person rents 1-3 rooms to us in the most sought after neighborhoods in Barcelona.
  6. Come with a friend and live together during your adventure in Barcelona.
  7. You will be met at the airport when you arrive in Spain, and taken directly to your apartment.
  8. Internships are for 4 hours each day in either a local, Spanish-owned company or a larger, international corporation with offices in Spain, whichever best fits your goals for this program. You will gain real, international work experience to add to your resume.
  9. The participating companies we work with represents sectors including tourism, teaching English, graphic design, social media, non-profit work, hospitality, sports and marketing. We are also happy to approach a specific company and create a new Sector on your behalf.
  10. Some excursions are included during your intensive Spanish coursework. We also organize events each month, which you are welcome to participate in -- some have a small fee, others are free. This program is meant to be 50% work experience and 50% cultural / language acquisition and immersion. To that effect, we help cultivate the cultural side of the program for you by organizing these events.
  11. Aahhh, Barcelona – so many websites, so little time. Start here: and here:
  12. English speaking (only if they have to – you are now in Spain!) Adelante staff on-site full-time, available to you for support and as an excellent resource for the duration of your program.
