Service Learning and Internships

Service Learning

The International College of Seville recognizes the interest many students have in reaching out to the wider community by participating in social service.  For this reason our College has established agreements with a number of Non-Governmental Organizations in Seville.  Through these agreements, ICS students may collaborate with the following organizations during their stay in Seville:

  • Working at a children’s ward at local public hospitals.
  • Helping at local senior centers
  • Teaching English to children in an underprivileged neighborhood.
  • Helping and teaching English to young girls at a local private school.

Different NGOs have been contacted and an informative session is organized at the ICS during the first week of classes.  Students are given detailed information as to what each Organization expects of its volunteers, and are given a weekly schedule. Students are required to write a four-page report on their experience and the NGOs are required to give a Certificate of Compliance for each student.

Internships available through the ICS:

In addition to Service Learning, the ICS offers its students a unique opportunity to gain professional experience during their Study-Abroad through a number of private corporations and public institutions.  Opportunities are available at the following businesses:

In all cases ICS selects qualified students only. There is a mandatory orientation session for all interested students. The orientation is cultural and “institutional” so that students enter into this experience with the proper mindset and attitude. Some of the settings are quite sensitive. Topics included are dress, behavior, absence, tardiness, workplace culture, harassment issues, etc. Students have to fill out an application form and bring in a resume or CV. Personal interviews may be required in some cases before final acceptance.

For those students wishing to continue their travels abroad, here is an opportunity of employment. With AuPairnet24.com you can discover new countries, learn new languages and enjoy board and lodging for free. Click on the link to see how.
