Lisbon is the capital city of Portugal, and is one of the most charismatic and vibrant cities in Europe. Lisbon has become a hub for creativity, culture and commerce, and is known to be one of the world’s most liveable cities. Absolute Internship’s Lisbon internships are offered on a first-come-first-served basis as part of our award-winning program.
As the oldest city in Western Europe, Lisbon manages to blend its ancient heritage with striking modernism and progressive thinking. A patchwork of distinct and colourful city districts, from the rustic Alfama to the colourful Baixa, Lisbon offers a buzzing lifestyle with sandy beaches only a short train journey away.
With cobbled alleyways, ancient ruins and white-domed cathedrals, Lisbon is a vision of European culture. The sardines, custard tarts and emotional guitar music are not to be missed either!

We work with both small and large companies with established internship programs. Unfortunately, we can’t provide a list of companies that we work with due to confidentiality reasons.
Joining one of our Lisbon internships, you will reside in high quality student housing, centrally located in the heart of the city. Transport connections are just a short walk away. Living and socialising alongside other students from all over the world will be a fun and memorable part of your summer experience with Absolute Internship.
You will need to purchase your own flights and international insurance. Additionally, you will be required to cover any food, drinks and personal shopping expenses accrued throughout the summer.
Work-based learning is regarded as an educational opportunity, and more often than not visa specifications require that Lisbon internships be unpaid.
Nevertheless, in rare cases, interns can and do receive renumeration.
Our placement team will not make this a priority when searching for your internship and we therefore recommend that you assume your internship will be unpaid.
Flights are not included in the price but we can help suggest flights for you in advance.
We will help organise group lessons for participants who want to learn Portuguese. This is not included in the price. Please speak to the Absolute Internship team before arrival in order to arrange your language lessons.
