Ministry, Service, and Internship Opportunities

We believe strongly in the value of internships for students in study abroad who have the academic background and/or serious prior experience. Discuss the possibility of an internship with your home university advisor and write a specific proposal in the field of the internship you desire. Upon your advisor's approval, submit your proposal with your application.

You will be interviewed via SKYPE/telephone to insure that your Spanish is up to what you plan to achieve. If satisfied, ISiS will prepare the internship so that you can begin once in Seville. Professionals and experts in human resources and placement will seriously monitor all internships.
