Frequently Asked Questions
Applications must be received before 15th of June 2022. However, because we have limited places in our program, we do recommend that you start your application sooner rather than later to guarantee your spot.
Our Summer Language and Hospitality Course has a duration of 1 month. The programme starts with a welcome reception on the 1st of July, and classes start on the 4th of July and end on the 29th of July. After the course, you will start your internship from the months of August to October. The exact dates of your internship will be confirmed within the first weeks of your course at ESEI.
Is the Internship obligatory and what is the minimum period for taking one?
First of all, we're excited you're considering this program. Taking an internship is not obligatory within the programme, however, we do recommend taking advantage of it to gain experience. The minimum duration of an internship is 3 months, however, if you are unable to stay for the whole period, we can explore possibilities with our partners.
We recommend that you attend all classes. The only reason an absence would be justified is if you are unwell and can provide an official medical note. Remember that any absence will hinder your learning and thus likely jeopardise your results.
Our campus facilities do not include student dorms. However, we do provide a list of student residences close to our campus where you can live as well as student accommodation agencies that help you find your ideal home in Barcelona, with attractive promotional codes specific to our students.

Every year we help students from all over the world get their student visas, so don’t worry! We’ve got your back :)
