Oxbridge Academic Programs is currently looking for Program Assistants and Activities Directors for the Academia de Barcelona summer program, which is held in the Les Corts neighborhood of Barcelona in JULY 2019.

Qualifications and Experience:
We are looking for undergraduates or young graduate students with extensive knowledge and experience of Barcelona as local university students. All applicants should be in at least their second year of university studies. The characteristics desired are a combination of positive attitude, character, camaraderie, a sense of fun and the enthusiasm and initiative to get things done.

Applicants should be local university students and deeply familiar with Barcelona. They should be comfortable speaking in English.

Job Description:

Program Assistants:
Working as a Program Assistant is as varied as it is rewarding. Hours of work vary but Program Assistants generally work 8 hour shifts daily over the course of the program, and are based in the Program Office. Work in the Program Office involves dealing with students, parents, fellow members of staff, and program guests, and ensuring that the program runs smoothly in the broadest sense.
PAs are generally ‘around’ for most of the time, contributing to the atmosphere of the Program Office and the program as a whole, available in case of emergency, and – as residential staff members – they dine in Hall/the residence and are a positive, engaged presence on the program. PAs are also involved with the Activities program, working with Activities Directors.

Activities Directors:
Activities Directors are responsible for designing, publicising, implementing and supervising an Activities program that is optional for program participants, but means that students are never left unoccupied outside of class. This can include everything from running sports tournaments and museum tours to organizing dances and arranging local guest speakers; the only real limitations are your imagination and a budget. The activities program must take full advantage of the city.
Like Program Assistants, Activities Directors are generally ‘around’ for most of the day, either in the Program Office or supervising and leading Activities. ADs generally spend mornings planning activities and afternoons and evenings leading and supervising them, with support from Program Assistants and other members of staff. In practice, the hours are quite long but relatively flexible and the experience extremely rewarding. As residential staff members, ADs dine in Hall/the residence and are a positive, engaged presence on the program. A successful Activities Program is vital to creating a happy student body.

Program Details
Please review our program dates online (, and be aware that administrative staff arrive in residence one week prior to students arriving and remain for two days after they leave. We offer competitive salaries commensurate with experience. Accommodation, breakfast and dinner each day are provided in addition to the salary.

NOTE: If interested in both positions, applicants are very welcome to apply to work as a Program Assistant AND Activities Director – but please indicate a preference if you have one.

To apply, please email a CV and a cover letter to:
