Barcelona Summer Program

I was a part of the Barcelona SAE Summer Program in 2017 and thoroughly enjoyed my experience. The staff were always willing to help and were easily available to visit in their offices during the day. They answered emails quickly and helped me when needed. They also sent out a Cultural Agenda every week with different local events and experiences that were a helpful way to plan for your weekend. We downloaded the TeamUp App which is how we could sign up to participate in events and activities put on by the Barcelona SAE staff. It was a great experience and I am glad I chose this program!

Career & Life Shaping Experience

My BSAE customized internship experience lead to my first job after graduation because of my internship with a Spanish entrepreneur at a coworking space in the 12 week customized internship program. I landed a position as a marketing specialist for an international property group with property throughout Argentina due to my Barcelona experience. Not only did this program provide me real world, career focused experience and skills, it also deepened my appreciation for the culture of Barcelona and Spain as a whole. The included cultural activities and trips give you an insider view of the city and culture. The professional and friendly staff make your transition seamless while providing local insight on Barcelona living. I would highly recommend this program to anyone and everyone, Barcelona is a life-changing city!

Life changing experience with SAE!

I gave everything on this a 10/10 because this program was seamless from start to finish and one of the best experiences of my life! That being said, going abroad is what you make of it. If you're ready to step out of your comfort zone and immerse yourself in a new culture you'll have the time of your life.

I was placed as a Social Media Marketing and Promotions intern for the company, YouBarcelona. It aligned with my career goals, my co workers were welcoming and the was an amazing cultural experience. Of course, there were challenging times but it was all SO worth it!

I lived with a house mom and two students who were studying abroad. We were seriously like one big happy familia! Living with Conchita (my house mom) gave me the opportunity to improve my Spanish skills and enjoy delicious home cooked meals, true to Barcelona! It was also nice having a parental figure around. Even though I was 23 and had lived away from home for years, having Conchita around gave me a sense of security and family when I was so far from home. It's also nice living with a local so they can help you with logistical things in the city which can be overwhelming sometimes. They also know all the best spots!

The actually SAE program was great too. All the employees made sure we were comfortable and set up with everything we needed from start to finish.They also offer various cultural activities for you to partake in which is a fun way to meet other people in your program while getting more immersed in the Barcelona culture.

I loved Barcelona so much, I plan on moving back next spring!

Stylin' in Barca

I had a great time, easily one of the best experiences of my whole life. I enjoy doing things on my own a lot, and SAE was very good with allowing me to do that. I joined on a few group activities, which I'll say were extremely fun, dinners, segway tours, etc. The staff at SAE were all really sweet and helpful. They encouraged me to join them in their group activities, but weren't forceful. Like I said, being someone that enjoys their alone time exploring, I was very appreciative of them being okay with me doing my own exploring. Barcelona is so rich. So rich in culture, in architecture, in nature...in shopping. It has it all. The people are absolutely great. My host family included a lady who cooked deliciously and was always up for great conversation and tips on exploring the city. I'm dying to return to the city that taught me so much about what the world has to offer and what I have to offer the world. In regards to the school, IED is a ton of fun. For someone who has a huge interest in fashion, it was equal parts informative and educational, as it was entertaining. The professors were very knowledgeable and while I did learn a lot, many times I didn't feel like I was going to school. I had to walk almost a mile in the Barcelona heat to get to school (usually getting up at 8am) and never wanted to complain about it. The streets of Barcelona are filled with pastry shops that capture your senses, so walking anywhere is totally okay when you know you can stop to get a chocolate croissant along the way. I'd do this experience over and over again.

Immersed In Culture

From the moment you arrive in Barcelona you get a taste of the thriving culture. The first week in Barcelona you go on a trip with SAB to eat decadent Spanish food and a trip to the beach. The summer I spent living in Spain was on of the best summers of my life and I have friends and memories that I will cherish forever. I urge anyone considering this program to definitely apply, you will not regret it!
