Students are directly involved in the leadership of running an archaeological and heritage site in Ferrycarrig, County Wexford, with fellow interns and the management team.

You’ll be right in the heart of day-to-day operations; digging, rostering, doing logistical planning, site visit coordination, and liaising with the local community in outreach programmes related to the site.

This is an extraordinary opportunity to experience an archaeological site, as well as the ensuing research.

Who is this program for?

Students like you, who want real-life, hands-on experience in Experimental Archeology at one of the oldest sites in Ireland; dating back to 1169.

Why should I intern abroad?

Internships give students hands-on experience and real-world challenges in a supportive environment. In a competitive job market, an overseas placement gives your résumé an international dimension that’s rare among graduates.

Living abroad means you’re learning way beyond the workplace. Past interns report developing personally as well as professionally.

My visit to Ireland completely exceeded my expectations. I have to be honest, initially I imagined I needed to be an outdoor person to enjoy the country! I was definitely wrong. Ireland is a place where I want to be outdoors as much as possible. The imagery is so captivating and its visuals vary across the land. The landscapes are very alluring and simple to hike around.
