Virtual architecture internships are available across some of Valencia’s top architect studios, contributing to projects in contemporary architecture, restoration, new builds, homes and offices, urban planning, sport complexes, construction research, magazine publications, architecture conferences, and many more.

Interns collaborate with local architects in roles that vary based on your skills, experience and interests. You can assist on projects with tasks such as:

  • Technical drawing
  • Furniture design
  • 3D images
  • Plan modifications
  • Obtaining certifications
  • Data collection
  • Making design proposals
  • Health and safety reporting
  • Construction project management
  • Collaborating with clients
  • Conducting research for upcoming publications

Interns will also have the opportunity to utilize design software such as ArchiCAD, AutoCAD and Revit. Prior experience is not required, but will be helpful and will enhance the scope of the tasks that you can contribute to.

This internship is conducted in English, or in Spanish by agreement with your internship supervisor. Online Spanish language lessons can be arranged in conjunction with your remote internship if you’d like to further develop your language skills.

In all cases, interns should expect that the initial phase of their remote internship will focus on gaining some introductory knowledge. You may start by gaining an understanding or overview of what you can build upon, develop, learn, and contribute. Ensure that you ask questions and provide feedback during the introductory period, so that your supervisor understands how you’re progressing. This will help them to better understand important details, such as how quickly you learn, what you find challenging, what you find interesting, etc.

Understand and expect that individual internship experiences vary. Therefore, if you’re at a more introductory level, you should reasonably expect a more introductory internship. Likewise, if you’re interning for a shorter duration, you will have a different experience from someone who is interning for a longer duration. Placement preferences are considered but always subject to availability.
