The Language Policy Service contributes to the internationalisation of the University of Valencia through various initiatives aimed at promoting multilingualism among members of the university community.

Among these initiatives are the language and culture workshops, in which a native speaker of a non-official language at the University of Valencia leads a group of staff and students interested in learning about the language and culture in question, with Catalan as a support language.

The objectives of each workshop are to promote knowledge of the language and culture of the workshop, the values of multilingualism and the status of Catalan as a language of academic activity.

If you are a native speaker of a language other than Catalan and Spanish and have a sufficient command of Catalan, you can participate in this paid internship programme to promote your language and culture within the University.

To be eligible for these internships, you must:

  • Be a bachelor's or master's degree student at the University of Valencia (also Erasmus and other mobility programmes).

  • Have a sufficient command of Catalan and undertake to use this language as an auxiliary and support language in the workshops and for any other task related to the internship.
  • Be registered in the Voluntariat Lingüístic (language volunteering) programme.
  • In the case of extracurricular placements, you must have passed at least 50% of the credits of the degree in which you are enrolled. In the case of curricular placements, the minimum percentage is that established, if applicable, by the degree course you are taking.
  • Have the approval of a lecturer at the University of Valencia who is willing to act as academic tutor for the work placement.
  • Comply with the additional requirements established, if applicable, by the faculty or school where you are studying or by the Fundació Universitat-Empresa ADEIT.
