Mundo Antiguo has a Spanish school and volunteer organization in Cusco. But we also have our own internship agency called Mundo Antiguo Internship in Cusco. Mundo Antiguo Internship in Cusco is an internship agency, offering mediation for placements for students from all over the world.

In Peru it can be challenging to find a quality internship position. There are not too many placements available for foreign students as there are not too many international organizations here, especially in the Cusco region. Making a quality selection of companies and positions is something you can only do once you are here, visiting the companies and organizations, and talking to the people that would guide you as your coordinator. In most cases that is impossible to do if you are not here in Cusco and if you don´t have an extensive local network of contacts.

This is why you will need someone to do this for you. Mundo Antiguo Internship in Cusco provides the services to find you the perfect internship in Peru. And once you are here in Cusco, we will still help you and coordinate your internship program.


We offer internship placements from 4 to 52 weeks. All placements are fully or at least for a big part in Spanish. If you don´t speak any Spanish, a placement in Cusco will not be possible. You will need an intermediate Spanish level for almost all internship positions. If you are still basic, a Spanish course to prepare yourself is absolutely necessary. If you can´t communicate well, your placement won´t be the success we all hope it will be.

We have placements available in the following areas:

  • communication and marketing placements
  • management and organization
  • tourism in Cusco
  • education and sports internships
  • social work
  • psychology placements
  • medical and physiotherapy

Cost of the placement

Of course you look for an affordable internship placement in Peru. Students are always looking for quality placements and there is a strong competition on the Peruvian market among Peruvian students to obtain a good internship position. Due to this strong competition, organizations that offer good placements very rarely give a compensation for expenses let alone a salary. So that will be the situation for you as well.

Besides that, foreigners can´t do any work with remuneration or compensation in Peru without a work permit. But work permits are expensive and normally they don´t even provide a permit for an internship as you will not meet the requirements (like a minimum 1 year contract). So making any money during your placement is not an option in Peru. This can make your placement in Peru quite expensive as you have an international flight, cost of accommodation during your placement, food, transport and other expenses. This is something we can´t prevent. But we can make it as affordable as possible for you!

Mundo Antiguo Internship in Cusco has two options: the first one is paying a (reasonable) mediation fee for your internship placement. This mediation fee is $300 USD. You only pay this if we find a suitable internship for you and after your university has approved the placement. If you only want the placement and no accommodation or Spanish preparation course, this would be the best option for you. The other option is our complete internship program.

We have 2 options:

– $300 internship mediation fee
– Complete internship program

Internship program in Cusco

Most international students want to have a complete internship program, where we arrange the complete organization of your stay. Mundo Antiguo Internship in Cusco offers internship programs with an internship placement, accommodation and a Spanish course to prepare yourself for your internship period in Cusco.

We offer a program where you start with learning Spanish for a week, a 20 hours individual course. This is an intensive preparation course to start off well at your internship. During this week, you stay at a local guest family in Cusco to immerse yourself even better. If you are still basic in Spanish, this preparation period will be longer, depending on your Spanish level and the level that is needed at your placement.

After the preparation course your internship placement starts. During the period of the internship (from 4 to 52 weeks), you will stay in a shared apartment with other international students. The costs depend on the length of your placement and thus accommodation, so we can´t give you the exact costs of the internship program. Please let us make a calculation for you. What we can tell you for sure is that taking the internship program in Cusco, you won´t pay any mediation fee for your placement, so you will save $300! Besides that, you can participate in all the free activities and services that the Spanish school of Mundo Antiguo offers the students.
