Internships

An internship gives you the real-world experience you want, in the industry you love, within the supportive environment you need. In a competitive job market, an overseas placement gives your résumé an international dimension that’s rare among graduates.

Scholarships up to €1000 available

Finding the right placement

Your internship is built around you and for you. So we’ll match your placement to your field of study, interests and goals.  No cookie-cutter programme here.

We pair students with a small or medium firm in Ireland that supports and challenges them in equal measure. The placement will allow you to work with inspiring professionals, bring your academic knowledge to life, and further your career goals.

What will I learn?

Our internships revolve around learning. Past students describe it like a sandbox: the chance to hone skills, develop new ones, and build confidence, through experimentation and getting out of your comfort zone.

We can provide certified work hours, placement assessments and feedback to satisfy your university’s requirements for academic credit.

Internships also include the mentoring, support and learning goals that are often absent from graduate jobs.

What's Included:

  • Guaranteed internship placement
  • Accommodation
  • Application, résumé, cover letter and interview guidance
  • Excursions and social activities
  • Robust virtual orientation prior to starting the placement
  • Online learning portal
  • Cultural highlights, guest lectures and virtual events throughout the programme
  • 24/7 in-country support
  • Up to €150 stipend towards a professional development course of your choosing

  • Optional airport transfer
  • Academic credit through our School of Record or your home university (extra fee)
