“I highly recommend Barcelona SAE for a personally tailored virtual internship experience. I was able to interview with multiple companies before picking one within an industry that I was interested in, and I worked on a variety of projects and enjoyed weekly coffee chats with the staff.”

“The most valuable thing that I learned in Barcelona is to not be afraid to do things you’ve never done before. My main goal studying abroad through Barcelona SAE was to push myself outside my comfort zone. It was difficult at first, but I definitely learned a lot about myself and grew as a person by trying out so many new things that I ended up enjoying so much!”

“I think Barcelona was the perfect city to study abroad in and I am very grateful for Barcelona SAE. I felt that the program was very organized and loved all of the included activities. I would especially recommend a homestay because I had a great experience. I absolutely loved the staff, all the activities, the classes...everything!”
