"I don't think this would have been possible without the help and patience of the "Spain Internship" team. Thank you!"
I was accepted and forwarded to the 3rd party soon after. I had a brief phone call with the third party and they accepted me. Through all this time a guy called José was helping me. I am very thankful to José because not only did he allow me to email in Spanish (and my Spanish isn't very good!) but he was very understanding of the issues going on with my university and did not rush me at all to speed up the process. This was good because it allowed me to feel calm and confident about everything that was going on with my placement. Finally after a lengthy process, in March 2013 my university finally accepted the placement.
I don't think this would have been possible without the help and patience of the "Spain Internship" team. Thank you!
