WSU Student Instructions to Apply to this Program
Dublin, the cultural center and heart of Ireland, is a vibrant city well-known for its education, the arts, administration, economy, and industry. Our program guarantees an internship placement to help you develop professional skills that will jump-start your résumé and make you more attractive to employers in today's competitive job market. IES Abroad's unpaid, academic internships have placed Dublin students at companies and organizations like O'Brien Press, Kate Bowe PR, the Abbey Theatre Costumes Department, and the Lorraine Brennan Talent Agency, while also showing students the sights and sounds of Ireland.
Before you depart, we work with you to fine-tune your résumé, perfect your cover letter, hone your networking and interview skills, as well as prepare you for working in a new cultural environment. You'll be guaranteed a placement at a local business or organization, where you'll work for at least 32 hours a week. You also will enroll in a required 1- or 6-credit academic internship seminar with other IES Abroad interns, where you'll learn about a variety of local business settings and opportunities.
With IES Abroad's dedicated staff and international connections, you can be sure that you'll find an internship that meets your goals. You'll learn, and learn to stand out.

Your journey begins in the cultural center (and the heart) of Ireland: Dublin. Just think, you'll be studying in the City of Literature that's home to such literary greats as George Bernard Shaw, Oscar Wilde, William Butler Yeats, and Samuel Beckett! Stroll around Dublin to see how the historic architecture blends with modern design. Enjoy the energetic music scene and lively theatre. And when you need to get away, you'll discover outdoor adventures just a short train or bus ride away.
We strive to make sure you feel safe, cared for, and at home while you’re away from home. Whether it’s the orientation program that makes you feel prepared, your housing that is well-located and comfortable, the cultural events that make it easy and fun to meet other international and local students, or the field trips and walking tours that take you to places tourists don’t usually see—we’re all about our student service. Learn more about the day-to-day studying abroad on this program. From field trips to housing, it’s all on IES Abroad’s website.
