Dublin Programs


    OVERVIEWDublin Programs

Dublin is consistently ranked one of the best cities in the world for study abroad – and it’s no wonder why. Ireland’s capital is edgy, sophisticated and fast growing, all while maintaining its quirky, historic charm.

While Dublin may still be better known for its ancient pubs and famous Guinness Storehouse than as a hub for technology startups, things are changing quickly as Internet heavyweights including Google, Facebook and Twitter have set up shop next to scrappy newcomers such as SumUPDogpatch Labs and Dropbox in an area of the city known as the Silicon Docks. For students more interested in old lit than high tech, it doesn’t get much better than Dublin. In a single afternoon, a person can walk in the footsteps of giants like Beckett, Joyce and Wilde at the Writer's Museum before delving into their famous tomes housed in the massive National Library.

The city has a charming big-village feel and there’s always something to do no matter what your interest. If you fancy a run you can visit Phoenix Park, for some fresh sea air just jump on a 30-minute train to Howth, for the culture vultures the Chester Beatty Library, the famous Abbey Theatre or the National Museum are just some of the museums and theatres available, for sports fanatics a trip to Croke Park is in order to watch Ireland’s national sports, Gaelic Football and Hurling and for the shopaholics Grafton Street and Henry street will have everything you’re after.

Programs in Dublin are direct-enrollment options at one of three universities:

  • Dublin Business School (semester, internship and summer program options)
  • University College Dublin (semester and academic year options)
  • Trinity College Dublin (semester and academic year options)

While enrolled at your institution of choice, the professional staff at the FIE Dublin office offer a wide variety of resources including housing, health and safety support and extra-curricular activities. Immerse yourself in Dublin and the Irish way of life.
