FEUZ - Companies and Institutions
The realization of internships for students and graduates at companies and institutions is a case example for the collaborative solutions that arise from the coming together of talent, knowledge, skills and resources in a manner which provides pragmatic solutions to the needs of companies and institutions, of universities and their students, and of society in general.
Cooperating with us in the internship program can greatly assist in the development of young trainees and recent graduates without previous professional experience, which complements formal studies and learned skills, and enables them to acquire the additional skills and abilities needed to face the working world, increasing their employability, and contributing to their ongoing skill and knowledge development.
In addition, this activity provides your company with a highly effective method for selecting people for future openings in the organization, as the company will have at its disposal people who are fully prepared and motivated to perform in accordance with knowledge and skills acquired over the course of their respective research activities.

This international dimension is one of the key pillars of the work FEUZ has developed since its inception. Since 1990, we have been actively managing the exchange for student and university graduate internships within the various labour and youth mobility programs of the European Union.
The internships also enjoy this dual dimension, and our efforts are focused on finding the right solutions for the initiatives that emanate from both areas; that is, educational organizations, and companies and institutions.
There are two ways in which we attempt to meet the needs of these two communities:
- Workplace organizations outside Spanish national territory who wish to accommodate students in or Spanish graduates in internship stays.
- Workplace organizations in Spain who wish to accept students or graduates of foreign countries in internship initiatives.
