Valencia offers internship positions in areas ranging from business and marketing to museums to social services to higher education. Students earn from 6-16 undergraduate academic credits during the internship through their academic department. Internships are generally unpaid, full-time or part-time work assignments. While we cannot guarantee specific placements, FSU Valencia Programs seeks to accommodate every qualified student with an appropriate internship.

How to describe this person I am now? I just know that I'm better, Valencia changed me for good. And this chica, though no longer in España, is the happiest chica in the world.

Being in a foreign country with approximately 50 other students is a great way to ease into the college life. Being so far away forces you to grow up and become independent in a short time.

My college experience has been enhanced by spending it in Spain. Learning a new culture and language while in a small group setting is a big bonus: it feels like I'm a part of a big family.

It is amazing to be able to walk outside and meet people from all over Europe and the world! I am going to be different from other freshmen when I go back to the states, but in a good way.
