We partner with a range of companies from multinational professional services firms to local enterprises, to offer internships across a range of business disciplines. Our partners recognise the high calibre of our students and increasingly consider internship opportunities as a fundamental part of their graduate recruitment strategy.
Our year-long (9-12 month) paid internship programme provides employers with the opportunity to introduce new skills and ideas to their work place. Each year approximately 200 students are accepted onto the Internship Programme.
The internship is an optional programme which is open to penultimate year students on the Bachelor of Commerce and BSc Economics & Finance degrees. Placement on the programme is competitive and only the highest performing students are selected. Successful candidates will have completed 2 years of study before completing their internship. They will remain fully registered students during the internship and complete an academic component in conjunction with a full working week. Following on from the internship, students return to UCD to complete their final year of study.
Students accepted onto the Internship Programme commit to engage fully with workplace experience, including orientation, training, a full working week and normal employment responsibilities.
