Interning abroad can be a great alternative to more traditional types of study abroad. They can be shorter, less expensive, easier to work into degree programs and offer both cultural immersion and work experience into one program. Far fewer students participate in international internships, giving you a unique experience to help you stand out from other graduates.
As the capital of the Republic of Ireland, Dublin is one of the liveliest cities in Europe. With one of the youngest populations comprising people from many different parts of Europe and the globe, the city has a full and varied cultural and intellectual life, which brings together the best of traditional Ireland and of modern Europe.
Dublin is particularly fortunate to have many theaters, museums, and galleries throughout the city. Famous for its literary and musical tradition, Ireland’s capital has been home to well-known writers, playwrights, actors, and musicians for many years. A particular feature is the tradition of live music in every conceivable venue, from street artists to the National Concert Hall to the many pubs where traditional Irish music still flourishes. In the literary field, the contribution of native sons has been outstanding, with Jonathan Swift, Oliver Goldsmith, Oscar Wilde, George Bernard Shaw, W.B. Yeats, and Samuel Beckett amongst the most prominent.
Prospective API interns will be happy to know that interning abroad in Dublin places them at the economic center of Ireland. The city was the focal point of Ireland’s rapid growth before the global recession and property crash and is at the heart of the Celtic Tiger’s economic recovery.
Steeped in history with its deeply textured landscape, Dublin and Ireland’s heady mix of culture, music, dance, sport as well as its infamous hospitality, is truly the land of a thousand welcomes and should be at the top of every prospective API intern’s list.
