An internship gives you the real-world experience you want, in the industry you love, within the supportive environment you need.
Scholarships up to €1000 available
In a country as rich to explore as Ireland, your learning will go way beyond the workplace. All of our interns find themselves developing personally as well as professionally.
Learn more more about each placement category by selecting from the list below. If you don’t see your major or industry on the list, don’t worry. We don’t list every placement that we have because many are filled faster than we can write them up, but we can facilitate almost every area of study and interest. Contact us with what you’re looking for and we’ll get right back to you.
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.
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.
You tell us if there’s a town or a city you prefer to live in. We’ll match you with a local family that’ll give you a home-away-from-home. Living with a family is one of the most enjoyable parts of the experiences, as students say it immerses them in Irish life, culture, customs and cooking.

We’re small, which helps us keep our fees competitive despite the fully customised programme we offer each student.
There’s an application fee of €95 and a participant commitment fee of €500 that are both non-refundable. Airfare, materials for placement, mandatory health insurance, lunches and spending money aren’t included.
The application deadline is based on when you’re available to intern.
Applications must be received at least 12 weeks before your intended start date. Available start dates or 2019 are listed:
We’re delighted to offer three scholarships a year of up to €1000 per student, which are deducted from the final payment.
Scholarship applications can be submitted as part of the general internship application. You must have a 3.0 GPA to apply. The scholarship section has two parts: a one-page essay about how the placement will contribute to your academic and career goals, and a choice of how you might record your internship experience (with a blog and Instagram photos or video blog). All scholarship recipients will be required to fill out a testimonial during their placement. Details about how to complete this testimonial will be provided to you once you are in-country.
