Gain a Global Perspective While Interning in Ireland
Internship Program in Ireland
As a student in the Irish Internship Program you will participate in volunteer work placements in agencies, corporations, and organizations in Dublin, Ireland. This internship course enables you to gain depth and understanding of an international work environment and to develop the personal and professional skills necessary for future career advancement.
Each weekly module provides a learning experience that investigates a specific component of your professional environment as you experience the international internship placement's function and culture.
We have a large network of Homestays throughout Dublin. All our host families are fully vetted by our partners in Ireland and the local police. Regular checks are carried out on the host families and the accommodation itself. So relax and enjoy your home away from home.
Students receive their breakfast in the morning and a dinner in the evening. Host family accommodations include a single room in host family residence.
All host family sites can easily access the city center by the local transport systems. Upon arrival in Ireland, all students will receive transportation from airport to host family or company.
Host families are happy to share their knowledge for a truly immersive experience.
