Today’s global economy demands graduates with a global perspective. Our Summer Internship Programme for international students enables students to develop practical professional skills and fine-tune their communication skills within a business environment. Part of the thrill of an internship abroad will be discovering the cultural differences that lie between you and your co-workers, and how you relate to each other.

The Summer Internship Programme consists of a two-week academic programme combined with a six-week internship placement based in Dublin. The academic programme enables you to experience education in a leading institution while the internship component offers you the chance to gain valuable insight into a professional arena. The internship team can provide a broad spectrum of intellectually engaging internships in business focused roles. Students are encouraged to be proactive and to perform to their full potential both academically and professionally.

An essential element of the UCD Summer Internship is for students to experience Irish society and culture. This series of excursions is funded and coordinated by the Lochlann Quinn School of Business to enable you to explore and immerse yourself in Irish culture. Attendance at the trips is at your discretion. However, you are encouraged to sign up for the excursions and field trips in Dublin and around Ireland. This will provide you with firsthand experience of the historic and cultural sites that surround you.
