The Dublin Internship Program is an eight-week summer program that provides students with the opportunity to work in one of the major economic centers in northwestern Europe, administered by Eller in partnership with the Foundation for International Education (FIE).

By participating, students will have the opportunity to gain international internship experience in one of their fields of choice. Students will also gain an appreciation for Irish culture and an international workplace.

You will intern four days a week, Monday-Thursday, full-time, and also take one course, the International Internship Course. The course typically meets one evening a week.


Internship Placement

Students will work with the program provider to professionally revise their resume, prepare for interviews and ultimately obtain an internship in the industry of their choice.

Dublin summer internships are unpaid and placements are made with an emphasis on balancing the needs of the student with those of the organization.

During the spring semester students work with the Internship Placement Coordinator in Dublin regarding the placement process. Final selection will be made in Dublin on the basis of interviews with the FIE internship coordinator and the supervisor at the internship placement site.

Applicants are guaranteed an interview with the Dublin internship coordinator, secured on the basis of interest and qualifications described on the submitted application. Interviews occur during the spring semester, once students have been accepted into the program. Specific placements cannot be guaranteed in advance, but every effort is made to place students in an organization that relates to his or her area of interest, experience and education. An important aspect of this program is flexibility. If you are too narrow in where you would like to work or what you hope to accomplish, you will greatly limit your ability to successfully place you in an internship. During the application process, you’ll choose three industry areas of interest, which gives flexibility in lining up your internship. Relevant academic studies or work experience in the field of the internship for which you are applying is typically required. Some placements may require portfolios or other documentation.


Summer Internship Housing and Transportation

The Dublin Internship Program housing is located in and around the city center of Dublin with easy access to local transportation. FIE provides student housing in central Dublin, in one of several centrally-located apartment-style furnished residences.

Students are typically met at the Dublin airport by FIE staff and then transported into the city on the day of arrival. Dublin is a compact and an eminently walkable city, and most students will walk to their internships and class. If public transportation is needed, FIE staff will work those students to make suitable accommodations.


Orientation and Activities

Upon arrival in Dublin, you’ll have a multi-day orientation that includes important meetings about your housing, class and internship as well as fun activities designed to help you orient to Dublin, such as a local amenities walking tour, a welcome reception and a day trip to a beautiful cliff and coast area in the region. Another day trip is included to an authentic working Irish farm. All students have access to highly subsidized calendar of extracurricular activities in Dublin and beyond.


Academic Credit

Eight week program, where students will intern in a small to mid-size Dublin organization or nonprofit four days a week full-time, Monday through Thursday. They will also take FIE’s International Internship Course. Students will work both online and in class with their peers and a course instructor to reflect upon their internship experience and exchange ideas. 

Upon completion of the program, Eller students will receive 3-6 direct credits for BNAD 393A for the international internship course. All students must complete 3 units; the additional 3 units are optional and include an internship project and presentation. These units can be applied directly towards the Global Business Program or can be used as general elective credit.

The London Internship Program is a eight-week summer program administered by Eller in partnership with the Foundation for International Education (FIE).

It combines an unpaid internship with two courses, British Life and Culture, an International Internship Course and various cultural excursions throughout the city. You will intern 2.5 days a week and be in class 2.5 days a week for the entirety of the program.


Internship Placement

London summer internships are unpaid and placements are made with an emphasis on balancing the needs of the student with those of the organization.

An important aspect of this program is flexibility. London, as the largest city in Europe, and perhaps the most influential city among the world capitals, offers infinite possibilities for prospective interns. If you are too narrow in where you would like to work or what you hope to accomplish, you will greatly limit your ability to successfully place you in an internship. During the application process, you’ll choose three industry areas of interest, which gives flexibility in lining up your internship. Relevant academic studies or work experience in the field of the internship for which you are applying is typically required. Some placements may require portfolios or other documentation.

During the spring semester students work with the Internship Placement Coordinator in London regarding the placement process. Final selection will be made in London on the basis of interviews with the FIE internship coordinator and the supervisor at the internship placement site.

Applicants are guaranteed an interview at a placement site, secured on the basis of interest and qualifications described on the submitted application. On-site interviews normally occur during the first week of the program. Specific placements cannot be guaranteed in advance, but every effort is made to place students in an organization that relates to his or her area of interest, experience and education.


Academics

An important component of the London internship program is the academic portion. The British Life and Cultures course empowers you to develop an understanding of the issues of this rapidly changing nation and the exciting effects this has on British identity, its relationship with Europe and the rest of the world. In addition to the traditional classroom experience, learning will be supplemented with guest speakers and guided visits to places in London of both historical and contemporary significance. The International Internship Course enhances and contextualizes the internship experience. You’ll participate in a variety of seminars designed to help develop your understanding of the U.K. workplace and enable you to make the most of your experience, working with an faculty member and your peers to reflect upon the experience and exchange ideas.

Academic Credit

Students are considered UA students while abroad and are registered for English 260 (3 units) and BNAD 393 Internship credit (3 units).

  • Earn BNAD 393 Internship credit (3 units) that may be applied to the Global Business minor and English 260 (3 units) that may be applied to the Tier Two Humanities General Elective requirement.
  • English 260: Major British Writers (3 units) that may be applied to the Tier Two Humanities General Elective requirement and also be used for the Global Business Program.

Program Administration

  • Arrange the internship placements
  • Assign and maintain student housing
  • Supervise and teach the academic program
  • Provide and support student related activities

Summer Internship Housing

Students live in shared room accommodations in apartments within the Kensington area. FIE assigns the accommodations and their Residence Life Supervisors live in the residences, all of which are within a ten-fifteen minute walk from classes and student services.

Orientation and Activities
