Barcelona summer internships are unpaid and placements are made with an emphasis on balancing the needs of the student with those of the organization. Students will work approximately 25-30 hours per week, and are required to complete the 3-unit Internship Seminar course. Not all organizations in Barcelona have returned to a fully staffed office five days per week. Please note that your internship schedule may be hybrid, with some time spent working remotely. 

Note: Accounting and Finance internships will require candidates to have completed multiple upper division accounting and/or finance courses. Business Management, Marketing, and Economics internships do not have any pre-requisite requirements.

Summer Internship Housing and Transportation

The Barcelona Summer Internship program housing is scattered throughout the city, and located around the city center of Barcelona. The student apartments include: a shared full kitchen, shared bathroom, internet access, a washer only, and fans. There are typically two students per room and up to seven students per apartment. Students will be living with the other program participants and are able to request to live with a specific roommate. 

Travel between students' housing and the academic Study Center is fast and fluid, thanks to the public transport and motorways network. The average commute time is 30-40 minutes.

Orientation and Activities

Upon arrival in Barcelona, you’ll have an orientation that includes important meetings about your housing, health and safety, the academic component of the program, and your internship placement. Additional activities designed to help you orient to the city will include a city tour, weekend day trips, and cultural activities.

Academic Credit

Students are automatically enrolled in a 3-unit CEA Internship Seminar course.

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.

In this eight-week program, students will intern with a small to mid-size Dublin organization or nonprofit four days per week (Monday-Thursday), full-time, for approximately 32 hours each week. Many Irish companies have not returned to a fully staffed office five days per week. Please note that your internship schedule may be hybrid, with some time spent working remotely. 

Internship Placement

Students will work with the program provider to professionally revise their resume and ultimately obtain an internship in the industry of their choice. During the application process, you will select three industry areas of interest. 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.

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

Students are not informed of their placement until it is confirmed, and notification timelines may vary per student. The earliest that a student will be notified of their placement is one week prior to departure, and the latest that a student will be notified is upon arrival in Dublin.

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 a modern centrally-located apartment-style furnished residence with your own bedroom and bathroom.

Students are met at the Dublin airport by FIE staff and then transported into the city on the day of arrival, as long as they arrive by early afternoon at the latest. If arriving before or after the day of arrival, FIE will advise on different airport transportation options available. Dublin is a compact and an eminently walkable city, however, depending on the location of your placement, you may need to travel on foot, by bus, train, tram, or a combination thereof. If your placement is located further than a 30-minute walk from your residence, you will be provided with a transportation card from FIE. 

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, scheduled later in the program. All students have access to a highly subsidized calendar of extracurricular activities in Dublin and beyond.

Academic Credit

In addition to your internship placement, students will also take FIE’s International Internship Course (IIC). Students will work both online and in class with their peers and a course instructor to reflect upon their internship experience and exchange ideas. In addition, students will work independently to complete a number of written assignments and their performance in the workplace will be evaluated by their designated site supervisor.

Upon completion of the program, Eller students will receive three units of BNAD 393A credit for the international internship course. These units can be applied directly towards the Global Business Program minor or can be used as general elective credit.
