Volunteer and Work Experience

Students interested in volunteering can find practical help, information and guidance on how to collaborate with humanitarian and non-governmental organizations at the university volunteer work office.

AIFS Resident Director

Edu Padial

Phone: (34) 637 512 056

Hola! My name is Edu and I have been working for AIFS since 2007, when I began coordinating language exchanges for AIFS students in Granada my hometown. From there, I began organizing more activities, weekend trips and even summer programs, which I continue to work on to this day. I studied Tourism and Work Science, an MBA, and then I worked and studied in London which was a great experience.

I love playing sports such as football, going snowboarding, running and so on. Another passion of mine is traveling, so it is a pleasure to work for AIFS, where I get to travel a lot, as well as enjoy all the activities we arrange for students. Each semester is a new experience and I absolutely love hearing about all your adventures!

I look forward to showing you Seville and sharing my language and the Spanish culture with you all.

The Resident Director provides academic advice, introduces you to the community and handles communication with the University.
