Consultancy projects and internships

Yes, and we would encourage that.

These credit-bearing research internships are usually located in museums, research institutes or other universities. Students focus on particular projects and work with colleagues in those institutions. They may be aligned with the thesis workshop in which the student is enrolled. More details and examples of the previous Consultancy Projects can be found here.

These consultancy projects have groups of three or four students working together on particular issues or research projects with mostly small-scale, third sector or public organisations in Barcelona. They take place either in January (before the second semester) or in June (at the end of the second semester). We strongly advise that at least one person in each group can speak Spanish. More details and examples of the previous Consultancy Projects can be found here.

All of our universities have internship support offices that you can access. Please refer to a dedicated part of our  website for details on some of the opportunities. We do not advise that you undertake any internships in the first semester.
