Abstract: This work studies the effects of international internships on the employability of recent graduates of a public South European university, the type of employment achieved and the relationship with the knowledge and skills acquired during the internships.A survey was conducted during the international internship and a new survey has been administered one year later in order to follow the situation immediately after the internship and after a few years in terms of employability. This survey includes different aspects such as: relationship between theory and current job, type of employment and labour contract, and soft skills used in the current work. The expected results show the relationship between the international internships and the graduate international employability.
