API at the Universidad Francisco de Vitoria in Madrid

Students who are interested in gaining real-world work experience in Spain are ideally suited for the study abroad internship and service learning options available through API at the Universidad Francisco de Vitoria (UFV).

During the first 4 weeks of the semester, students take an intensive Spanish language course for 20 hours per week. Following this course, students take a course in contemporary Spanish society or cross-cultural communication that meets twice per week for 4 hours per day. The remainder of their time each week is spent working in an internship or service-learning placements.

Spain’s capital since 1561, Madrid is the contemporary capital of Spanish culture, finance, and industry. A large, international and cosmopolitan city, Madrid is a city of possibilities. The energy of Madrid is in its street life and warm people. To study in Madrid is to experience more than a classroom – it is to experience the history of Spain and its people. API gives students the chance to live and learn in this fast-paced capital city.
