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 with 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 direct credits for BNAD 393A for the international internship course. All students must complete the 3 unit course. These units can be applied directly towards the Global Business Program or can be used as general elective credit.

FIE offers $1,000 scholarships for this program. The summer scholarship application deadline is February 15th.

The Online Virtual Internship is an eight-week summer program administered by FIE.

This program offers online hands-on work experience in London, England or Dublin, Ireland. 

Internship Placement

The online 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 and being open minded. 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 be placed in an online internship. During the application process, you’ll select an area of interest (Marketing, Advertising, Business Administration, Video Editing, Communication, Non-Profit, etc.).

During the spring semester students work with the Internship Placement Coordinator in London or Dublin regarding the placement process. Final selection will be made on the basis of virtual interviews with an FIE Internship Coordinator. Specific placements cannot be guaranteed, but every effort is made to place students in an organization that relates to his or her area of interest, experience, and education.

Program Considerations

Interns can expect to work 20-25 hours each week. You can request to be placed with another intern if you wish, and FIE will do their best to accommodate this request. 

Due to data protection regulations, security considerations, and company preferences, some industry areas are not available for online internships, including: accounting, finance, human resources management, and information systems. 

If you decide to enroll in an FIE Online Summer course, you will be charged additional fees. Please contact Lauren Findlow if you are interested in completing any coursework through FIE. *Please note that the FIE International Internship Course will not transfer to the UA.*

Program Administration

The program is administered by FIE, Eller's long-time partner in London and Dublin. The FIE staff will assist in:

  • Arranging the online internship placement
  • Facilitating an online orientation and organizing networking opportunities with other virtual interns
  • FIE Internship Mentor will provide feedback on applicant's Resume (CV) and Personal Statement

Scholarships
