Internship Program.

At CIS, full degree-seeking students are required to complete internships which has led us to develop a vast network of more than 100 prestigious national and multinational businesses and corporations. Study Abroad students are encouraged to take advantage of our already well developed internship program to enhance their CV through valuable international work experience.

Our Internship department helps to select the company that best fits students’ goals.  Our internships require participants to be fully integrated into the company, and to perform normal tasks that would be expected of any employee. The experience acquired during this aspect of our educational program is unparalleled and truly enables our students to apply what is learned on our campus in a real-world, professional environment.

This permits study abroad students to gain international work experience and the self-confidence that working in a different language and cultural environment frequently inspires. It increases their integration into Spanish society which provides them with an alternative social environment, increases contact with Spanish people, and thus helps to improve their Spanish and intercultural skills.

Study abroad students have the option to get credit for the internship by signing up for INT 200 (2 credits), which includes tutorials with the Dean of Endicott College, essays analyzing the work experience, and 120 hours of work in a company here in Madrid.

Volunteering.

For students who are eager to directly involve themselves in the local community of Madrid, CIS provides opportunities for them to volunteer in a local NGO, or with our own NGO — Cruzada Por Los Niños. Volunteer placement will depend on each student’s personal interests and abilities. Past students have worked with our NGO Cruzada Por Los Niños and the Real Madrid Foundation Soccer and Achievement Academies they support. Other options include working with underprivileged children in after school programs, teaching English at schools, etc. The experience will give them an opportunity to learn about another reality in Spain and immerse themselves further into Spanish culture.
