The Study Abroad Center partners with EUSA, an internationally recognized academic internship provider, to provide internship placements in Dublin, Ireland. Participants will be guaranteed an 8-week (200+ hours) internship in an area of their concentration and housing at University College Dublin.
Students are placed mostly with small and medium-sized firms where they are able to contribute and develop field-specific skills. Interns will have 8-hour workdays between Monday-Thursday with Fridays and weekends off. In the summer of 2017, interns from Iowa State with the following majors were placed at a wide range of organizations:
Liberal Arts & Sciences: Criminal Justice, Political Science, Statistics, Biology, Biochemistry, English, Technical Communication, Environmental Science, Sociology, Economics, Psychology, Journalism, Advertising Business: Supply Chain Management, Management Design: Graphic Design
Additional opportunities exist within: Human Science (Event Management, Hospitality Management, Food Science, Child, Adult & Family Services) Design (Community and Regional Planning) Business (Marketing, Finance, International Business) Liberal Arts & Sciences (every major)
If you do not see your major listed, contact firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about options.
After applying you will have an internship consultation with a member of the EUSA Placement Team via Skype or in person at ISU. During this consultation your goals and expectations along with your preferences and previous work experience will be covered in order to determine your placement. Check out EUSA - Preparation for a Successful Placement for more detailed information on the process.
Dublin is the capital of the Republic of Ireland and is known for its Irish charm, rich history, and friendly pubs. Today, Dublin is rapidly transforming into a major cosmopolitan destination as businesses and students flock there and art scenes flourish.
HOUSING and TRANSPORTATION
Your housing accommodation will be in a student residence with a shared living space and kitchen. EUSA places students in housing on the University College Dublin campus. Although you are going for a career experience, you won't miss out on the student experience and community that goes with living on a university campus. You’ll have a network of Iowa State students living near you as well as EUSA’s expertise and support. Dublin has an extensive public transportation system of buses, trams, and trains. You can get anywhere you need to go using a Leap Card. Trains and buses are great ways of sight-seeing around Ireland during your free time.
Students can use this program to fulfill a required internship for their major, as an independent study, or choose to do the program without academic credit.
