Why intern in Dublin?
While Dublin is the beloved home to a quarter of Ireland’s population, this European capital city flaunts the familial atmosphere of an enormous village. Much of this aura can be attributed to the famously friendly locals and the historical energy that the city exudes. Exploring the cobble-stoned city is like walking through a 3D textbook, with British colonial architecture at every turn and the Easter Rising shrapnel holes still staining the walls.
Wander the cobbled streets and be inspired by the hometown of Oscar Wilde and Nobel laureates William Butler Yeats and Samuel Beckett. With a track record like this, it seems only fair that UNESCO awarded it City of Literature. Meander in the Medieval Quarter and marvel at Dublin Castle. Stand in awe of the architecture in the Georgian district or head down to Silicon Docks to check out the modern art in the tech quarter. Be entertained by the buskers, day or night, on Grafton Street, right in the heart of the city. Whatever your hobbies, Dublin has a district tailored to you.
Dublin is a quaint capital. It proudly wears its history like a badge on a sash, displaying its war wounds as a symbol of the country’s strength and resilience. Its colonial past merely fuels its endeavor for greatness on the global stage today. Buzzing with the energy of revolution, Dublin is the catalyst for your career.
You may earn academic credit for your internship in one of two ways:
1. Through your home institution. Work with your academic advisor at your home institution to understand requirements to earn internship credit. We have flexible internship options to help you accommodate your university’s requirements.
2. If your school or major will not grant credit directly, ask if you can transfer credit from another university. The Intern Group provides a transcript option through their partner Florida A&M University for a small additional fee. Ask your advisor for a list of requirements and eligibility.
