Intern in the heart of the European Union without a language barrier.
Scholarships up to €1000 are available
Learn International is proud to partner with Irish College Leuven, a prestigious and long-standing college in the heart of Belgium. The College’s commitment to the student experience, exceptional placements and strong ties to the Irish community are all in line with Learn International’s values.
Irish College Leuven offers unique placement opportunities to students a stone’s throw away from one of the world’s most powerful political capitals – Brussels. Given Leuven’s proximity to the EU Parliament, as well as leading European headquarters and research facilities, it has a particular strength in Political Science and High Tech IT placements.
As all of the internships are through English, this is a unique opportunity for you to be based in the heart of multilingual Europe and intern without a language barrier.
Our placements are currently based in Leuven, Belgium, however some may find you spending some of your time in Brussels. A lot of time and care will be spent matching your skills and goals to a customised placement just for you.
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.
Airfare, materials for placement, visa and associated costs, mandatory health insurance, some meals and spending money aren’t included.
