Intern in Madrid

The most developed International Internship Program Adelante Abroad offers is based in Madrid.  We have over 250 participating companies.  Our apartments are in excellent condition, clean and centrally located in safe neighborhoods, walking distance to either a Metro station and / or multiple bus stops. 

Adelante staff actually really care about how your program progresses (your Adelante Intern Advisor, Don Antonio Pallares, an ex-Professor of Economics and, a lifetime ago, an ex-Real Madrid Soccer player, will actually offer to be your “abuelo” if you need that while you live out your experience with us in Madrid!)

The reasons to become an Adelante candidate are numerous and are listed below.  Additionally, here are two detailed websites to tell you more about our favorite city on earth: Urban Travel Blog and What Madrid.

This is what makes our program different and better:

  • Compare prices. Apples to apples, our International Internship programs – in ALL cities, not just Madrid - are the most economical you are going to find.
  • 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!

  • Academic credit can be received for this Program.

  • 2 weeks of intensive Spanish language classes are included in the fee

  • Lodging is included. Live like a Spaniard in a shared apartment with other Adelante candidates/international students or elect to live with Spanish roommates.

  • Come with a friend and live together during your time in Madrid.

  • You will be met at the airport when you arrive in Madrid, and taken directly to your apartment.

  • 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.

  • The participating companies we work with represent a wide variety of Sectors from Human Resources to Marketing to Teaching English to European Union consultants, and more. We are also happy to approach a specific company and create a new Sector on your behalf.

  • 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.

  • Madrid is Madrid - the capital and literal heart of Spain. There are hundreds of websites to find out more about this fascinating city, see above for two recommended websites to get you started.

  • 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.
