FIE Dublin internship placements, together with online coursework, discussion, and reflection, form the International Internship Course (IIC).
The internship placement is an ideal opportunity to have an ‘insider’s view’ to Irish life and culture. Pre-departure guidance and on-site support provided are keys to success. Students are individually matched to an appropriate organization based on skills, past experience and field of study. Internship placements are carefully vetted, and student progress is monitored and supported throughout the term. Please note that all internships are unpaid and are for academic credit only.
In order to enhance and contextualize the internship experience, there is an important academic component that runs in conjunction with the placement. Students will work both online and in class with their peers and a course instructor to reflect upon their internship experience and exchange ideas.
