An Internship provides the perfect opportunities to bridge the gap between studentship and professionalism, which somehow, a lot of students fail to connect while crossing this vital threshold of life.
Instituto Hispánico de Murcia Work Experience programme gives university students the opportunity to experience life in Spain as more than just a tourist or student.
Working and living with Spaniards and other internationals gives you a unique perspective on the “every day” Spain.
If you are a current or about to graduate university student, you can come to Murcia to live and work in our international language school or any other company, restaurant or hotel from 3 up to 6 months while on your summer break from university classes or any time of the year.
We are a designated host company by many international universities and have been welcoming young people from all over the world since 2000 to have the experience of a lifetime as they work and travel in Spain.
