INTERNSHIPS, SERVICE LEARNING, VOLUNTEERING
Internships are available in many different fields for students with advanced Spanish speaking skills. For more details, visit this link. Please note that internship applications are due several months before the program start date. For this reason, ISEP recommends applying for an internship at the same time as applying for the exchange.
