Housing: Madrid is a large European city with most residents living in apartments, and many of the homes being over 100 years old. To ensure interns can experience "living like the locals," we include housing in student apartments located near main areas, or close to public transport lines. Interns can expect to live in a shared bedroom in a shared apartment with other participants on the Global Experiences program, or other students attending language or study programs in the city. The apartments will have a shared kitchen and the necessary amenities, including Wi-Fi. All participants take a roommate questionnaire to help our team assess the right housing match for you. If you have any special needs, please mention this to a staff member at your time of application and we will discuss accommodation options available.
