The application period for the school year 2016-2017 is now closed.  Our offices are currently reviewing documents associated to already submitted applications.  Please note that we will not be able to review applications that have not been submitted online before the deadline of April 5th (5:59 pm Eastern). 


Typically, the assignment process starts in mid-May and lasts for approximately two weeks.  We will post up-to-date information on this website as soon as the assignments begin. 


There is no longer a 35-year-old age limit requirement for Madrid.  If your application has already been admitted, you are over 35, and would like to include Madrid as one of your preferred regions, please contact your regional advisor (see "Education Office contacts in the USA and Canada" below).

IMPORTANT NOTICE: During the campaign for the Language Assistants Program 2015-2016, we discovered fraudulent online application forms that forge the corporate identity of the Spanish Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport for unlawful purposes. These false application forms send you to a website containing a form that asks for bank information for you to make payment for registration in the program, flights, etc.

The Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport reminds candidates that registration in the program is FREE and WE WILL NEVER ASK FOR OR REQUIRE ANY FINANCIAL INFORMATION ABOUT BANK CARDS AND/OR ACCESS CODES NOR WILL WE DEMAND ANY PAYMENT through electronic mail or any other means.



Participants in our programs are eligible to receive discounted airfare through Iberia. If you are interested, please use this link to buy your tickets.
