How It Works – Program Process

Now that you’ve decided to go abroad, let’s talk about next steps.

Internship Abroad

Step 1: Do Your Research

Check out our program locations, dates and pricesinternship fields, and FAQ for eligibility. Read reviews on both our Intern Abroad and Study Abroad programs from past candidates on GoAbroad or GoOverseas. Call (our favorite) or contact us with any questions you might have. You can also contact us via TwitterInstagramLinkedIn, or Facebook.

Step 2: Apply Online

Complete our straightforward online application form. There is no fee to apply.

Step 3: Application Review & Confirmation

We will review your application right away. Suitable candidates will conduct a phone or Skype interview, then you’ll receive a confirmation email and a Letter of Acceptance. At this time, a $250 USD confirmation fee is required to hold your spot.  The whole application process is usually completed within 10 business days. Once a candidate is confirmed, we guarantee their placement abroad.

Step 4: We build your Program

Each Adelante Abroad candidate is assessed and handled at a case by case basis. The candidate’s age, field of study, past work experience, current skill set, program length, and language level are all taken into account. We send your file to our directors in the program city you have chosen, and they begin to build your individual program: a guaranteed, contracted internship placement, or university matriculation if you are doing a study abroad program, then housing, classes, and airport pickup confirmation.

Step 5: You do Your Part

While we set up your program, now’s the perfect time to purchase plane tickets to your program destination. Continue to research your new city; polish any crowdfunding options you are using or submit required data to any scholarship entities. Ramp up your Spanish by self-study if needed.  With our assistance, sort any Visa appointments and documents, if required (for programs longer than 3 months.) Then start packing!

Some programs include dorm-style living, on campus. Homestay options are available in some program cities, where you can live with a host family and enjoy 2 meals a day and weekly laundry service. 

  • Spanish Language Course

    Two or three weeks of intensive Spanish language class and orientation is included in your program (for our Spanish speaking destinations, of course). For the Study Abroad programs, two (Summer Abroad) to five (Semester Abroad) courses are included in the economical price.

University processes vary, and Adelante is accustomed to helping students navigate the various requirements to secure credit for their contacted hours in their internship. Study Abroad programs provide fully transferable, signed & sealed transcripts upon successful completion.
