Housing in Barcelona
Connect-123’s internship program in Barcelona offers several different choices when it comes to housing. We can work together to find your best housing option and then help to arrange your accommodations for you. You can choose to share an apartment with other Connect-123 international volunteers, live with local young professionals or other international students, or get a deeper cultural immersion experience choosing a homestay and living with a local Spanish family. With any of these options, our priority is quality accommodations that will make you feel comfortable and secure during your stay in Barcelona.
Our School of Record partner is University of California Irvine, and in parallel with your internship or volunteer position you are able to enroll in an online course at UCI that will grant you 3 graded transfer credits. The fee for these credits is only $600. Please check with your university if they accept transfer credits or reach out to us for more details. In addition, many students on our programs earn academic credit through their universities. Check with your university to find out if they grant credit for independent study, experiential learning, community service or internships and we’ll then liaise with your university to ensure that your project meets their requirements.
