Spain is an abundance of culture, delicious food, fun and of course, that sunny Spanish personality! The locals are friendly and welcoming, the lifestyle a fantastic balance of go-getting combined with a love to relax and enjoy life. Those are just a few of the reasons why students relish the opportunity to work and study in Spain. Not to mention the abundant good weather, the white, sandy beaches and the vibrant, atmospheric night-life, particularly in cities like Salamanca.


You could embark on the opportunity of a lifetime with an Erasmus+ or Turing Scheme work and study placement in Salamanca. Simply submit an application to your country’s National Agency and you could even obtain a grant towards your stay. Our work and study placements in Salamanca start every first Monday during the summer months. The package includes all airport transfers and a full list of brilliant cultural activities, where you’ll meet like-minded students just like you, from all over Europe and make lifelong friendships with memories you’ll take with you forever. Plus gain an excellent experience that will give you an advantage over others when it comes to your future employment.

Accommodation is in a modern international student residence or student flat, so you’ll be with other students just like you – there’s no time to be lonely! Your days will begin with a Spanish language course in the morning. Then, you’ll have a few hours free to explore the wonders of Salamanca before going into the office in the afternoon (Monday to Thursday). The language school is ideally located in the pedestrianised centre of Salamanca, just five minutes walk from the Plaza Mayor. Your afternoon internship will also take place in the school’s marketing department.

During your Erasmus+ or Turing Scheme work placement, you’ll be expected to help with day-to-day business, work with the students and marketing team and organise welcome parties along with several sports‘ tasks. The internship will be a combination of Spanish and English and when you complete your time in Salamanca, you’ll receive an internship certificate as well as a course certificate: Curso Intensive de Espanol. Both of these will be invaluable for your CV.

If you’re business minded, a team-player with excellent creative and social skills, can speak advanced English with Spanish and you have a strong desire to work and study in Spain then this could well be for you! Remember, application deadline is two months before the start of the programme so hurry and get email an application together with your CV and photograph to


For more inspiration, here are a couple excerpts from two of our interns on their experience in Salamanca:

During my Internship in Salamanca, I’ve gained new experiences in the realms of marketing and tourism. I’ve enjoyed working life and I learnt that every person had to fulfill tasks which actually fitted their personal interests and strengths. Moreover, I improved both my English and Spanish. I can only recommend a placement abroad and if I could do it all again, I would! (Nina)

I really enjoyed my time in Salamanca. It was a great experience that allowed me to learn Spanish at the same time as completing an exciting internship and to fully immerse myself in Spanish culture. The tasks were varied and interesting and also left a lot of room for creativity, which I particularly liked. I also found the teamwork to be very positive and constructive. Accommodation in a student apartment developed into a fun coexistence with friends. Even if I'm looking forward to going home a little bit, I'm sure I'll miss the funny gang and that the words "mucho gusto" will come over my lips in Innsbruck! (Claudia)
