Internship abroad in Dublin

Home > Expat Guides > Europe > Ireland > Dublin

Internship in Ireland (also traineeship, or secondment) is often necessary to complete degrees for a student who wants to highlight their skills and get a first experience at work! To seek an internship abroad is also a unique experience, in terms of language as well as for learning a new culture.

The obvious method of finding a secondment abroad is to contact companies with international subsidiaries and which can send you abroad for an internship directly from your country. Some large international companies organise selections with tests and interviews to recruit interns.

EU programme Leonardo da Vinci

The Leonardo da Vinci Community vocational training action programme, introduced in 1994, promotes projects based on co-operation between the various players in vocational training - training bodies, vocational schools, universities, businesses, chambers of commerce, etc. Community funds for the first phase of the programme amounted to € 800 million between 1995 and 2001, and 125 000 people received a grant for a work-related stay abroad. The program is pertinent to:

  • young people under the age of 28 years provides an experience from a minimum of three weeks to a maximum of nine months according to the level of training;
  • young people under 28 years old with a professional title: it is possible to carry out a training in a company (for a period of between three and twelve months) in the working market of an other European State;
  • to young university student : it is possible to work for some months (minimal three, maximum twelve) in a company of an other European State.
