Study and Internship in Sevilla!

I studied abroad with CEA CAPA in Sevilla, Spain during the Fall 2023 semester and had an incredible experience. I participated in a study and internship program and highly recommend it to other students, especially business students who are interested in working internationally in the future. The CEA CAPA team worked to make sure I found an internship that fit me and checked in throughout my program to see my progress. Their team is dedicated and genuinely cares about their students. I definitely recommend CEA CAPA if you are looking for a great program to study abroad with!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
I recommend being open to anything and just going with the flow. Of course it's good to have plans and goals for your program but sometimes the best experiences are the ones that come up unexpectedly. Approach every day with an open mind and you'll have a great time!
Pros
  • International experience
  • Connecting with new people
  • Exploring other cultures
Cons
  • Homesickness
  • Not enough time in the day
  • Finding friends as a solo traveler

CEA Capa Seville

The CEA Capa internship program in Sevilla, Spain was a wonderful experience in personal growth, academic and professional experiences, and cultural immersion. Through my time with CEA, I took one class on global communication which was an eye opening view on how to approach cultural differences in a variety of setting. I also had an internship in which I got let into the stress free atmosphere of the Spanish workplace. CEA also organized events to highlight an area of Sevilla's culture. My host mom was the sweetest (so was the cat) and engages me and my roommate in cultural conversations and showed us her favorite places in Sevilla (we ate at her favorite restaurant 6 times). It was a great program and I great way to experience life in Sevilla. Everyone was kind, warm, accommodating, and excited to share Sevilla with us.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
The most nerve-racking moments was when I went to meet my internship supervisor in person for the first time. It was a thirty-five minute walk on the hottest day so far and I was so nervous mostly about what to wear. I wanted to make a good first impression to start our relationship on the right foot. I knew that Spain was a more relaxed environment than the U.S.'s strict hierarchal workplaces and kept thinking about how warm people had been to me so far and not to stress. To my surprise, when I showed up, my supervisor was wearing an ACDC tshirt and a baseball cap. We had a laugh about it and the friendly nature of your 'boss' was very surprising but very comforting.
Pros
  • Cultural immersion
  • Professional internship experience
  • Helpful and caring staff

Seville, Spain

Studying abroad with CEA CAPA in Spain was such an amazing experience. From the beginning of enrolling in the program, I felt such a support system from CEA. They worked with me from before I even arrived and had me prepared by the summer came. Once I arrived, they walked me through every step of adjusting. They had scheduled excursions for us throughout the country and events in the city that really helped us immerse in the culture. I would recommend studying abroad in Seville, Spain to anyone and especially with CEA CAPA

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
My most nerve racking moment was getting on the plane in the first place. I knew nobody going into this trip, but dont let that discourage you from taking this step. There was so many opportunities to meet people on my trip since the first day and CEA puts an emphasize on building a community.

Unforgettable and Special Life Milestone

Seville, Spain, is a captivating city that has a charming blend of rich history, vibrant nightlife, and a warm community. Tapa places are at every corner, and so are shoe stores and ice cream places. While Seville's heat in the summer is mind boggling, the cultural tradition of siestas help avoid the heat. A truly exceptional destination for those seeking a transformative international program. The memories you make will last you a life time and the friends you will make from all walks of life!!!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Don't hold back on opportunities or the chance to make memories! It is easy for us to be shy or grow outside our shell because we are not in our comfortable environment, but this is a chance to be a new version of yourself who tries new things out. You will naturally be more confidence when you commute by yourself, explore the city, and look for excursions.
Pros
  • walkable city, low cab fares
  • warm community, good night life
  • rich history
Cons
  • beyond hot in summer
  • not too many diverse restaurants
  • few fun group day time activities

Life Changing Emotional Rollercoaster

I did not want to Study Abroad. I am a person that likes to feel comfortable. Living in another country for 3 months, with a new language, and all new people to say that was uncomfortable would be an understatement. However, I was not alone in these feelings. Everyone came with an open mind, CEA was extremely helpful and available in a time of need, and my program got very close very quickly. I learned that it's totally normal to have those feelings of discomfort and you're not alone. I ended up having the most incredible time!

Pros
  • Very Accommodating
  • Very Available
  • Wanted us to experience as much of the culture as possible
Cons
  • I am a vegan- eating was a bit difficult
  • was not a huge fan of my housing situation
  • N/A

Summer '22 Internship in Seville

My experience with CEA was unique in the fact that I pursued the opportunity to study/intern abroad the summer after my senior year. The CEA staff was unbelievably helpful from the moment I applied, to the moment I stepped foot in Spain. They guided me through changing program locations & ensured that I was prepared predeparture. Not only that, but I had onsite staff abroad eager to help with any obstacles that arose. I concluded my internship with greater confidence in many aspects of my life, professional & personal. I would recommend CEA 10/10 for anyone looking to step outside their comfort zone & challenge themselves to learn in an unfamiliar environment.

Pros
  • Friendly locals & safe area
  • Everything within walking distance
  • Amazing cuisine fit for vegetarians & omnivores
Cons
  • Insanely hot during the summer session, but manageable

My dream internship

I could not have asked for a better internship placement. It is exactly in the industry that I want and gave me really valuable insight into non-profit work. The staff I worked under were incredibly kind and patient. They had no problem helping me navigate through my tasks and cultural misunderstandings. I learned so much more than technical skills. My on-site staff at CEA (my coordinator Caro and professor Kevin) were so helpful and helped me keep going even when the semester got really hard. It was really interesting to see how culture impacts the work environment. Everyone was very flexible with my schedule so that I could work, attend classes and travel on my weekends. I also enjoyed the excursions CEA took us on in southern Spain and in Morrocco.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
I would have fewer expectations about my host city coming in.

Unforgettable Internship Experience in Seville

My name is Amanda and I’m a Global Communications student at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee studying in Sevilla, Spain for the Fall 2017 semester. I’ve always had an interest in the entertainment industry and in particular, media like film and television. CEA helped me to secure the internship of a lifetime and I'm so grateful.

My internship was at an audiovisual production company in Sevilla, Indalo y Media, and it has turned out to be an invaluable experience for me. Indalo y Media partners with Canal Sur to produce well-known Spanish TV shows such as “La Tarde Aqui y Ahora”, the one that I primarily work on. My colleagues were all very sweet and loved to joke around and laugh with each other, even in a high stakes setting like filming a live production. It wasn't a highly formal work environment, though there were levels of hierarchy and everyone knew one another’s role, it felt like a tight-knit community.

As an intern there, I mainly assisted with the production crew and my duties change according to the daily production needs. What remained constant, however, is that I helped move set pieces when needed during live filming, arrange the set, assist in creating gifts for the audience and invited guests, help unload donated food, and made sure to provide the audience and crew members with water.

Overall, I feel that I have learned so many valuable skills from this international internship experience that I will be able to carry with me wherever I go and will serve me in any context. After living outside of my comfort zone for four months in a foreign country and foreign workplace, my confidence has grown immensely. I know that I have what it takes to adapt, learn, be humble, ask questions, and thrive in an unfamiliar setting. I didn’t quit when I faced challenges or when things got difficult – I persevered. I know that I have a lot of offer and feel confident in my ability to meet and surpass expectations in a future internship in the United States.

Through my internship I have learned to be flexible, adaptable, think in a globally-minded manner, improve my Spanish comprehension and oral skills, to be prepared to work in a multicultural setting, and to embrace and represent company values. I have learned the importance of taking initiative and finding my own sense of internal motivation. It was a big challenge to see other Spanish interns be able to understand and perform at a higher level than me, building trust faster, developing relationships, handling tasks with more proficiency. It was hard on my self-esteem at first, but then I remembered that it was I who had put myself in another culture, willing to challenge my sense of comfort and sense of humility. I know that if they had come to the United States to do what I do, they would be struggling just as much if not more.

I built a stronger sense of self-confidence, the ability to achieve consensus with a group of people, tolerance for ambiguity, a deeper sense empathy for second language learners and those travel to foreign countries to live and work, communicative awareness, and higher respect for others. Despite cultural differences, potential language barriers and geographical distance, I have learned that people all around the world are generally the same – we all experience the same emotions, fears, insecurities, and sense of belonging. With the little exposure to foreign elements and people that many of my coworkers had, they welcomed me with open arms and warm hearts and I am very grateful.

None of this would've been possible without the help of Caro, the Internship Coordinator, and all the other staff at CEA.

What would you improve about this program?
Intercambio exchange program can be improved upon as well as the academic partnership with UPO which as a university is not very organized.
