Internships in Galway are available for university students and graduates, and young professionals. This internship program provides you the opportunity to be involved in one of Ireland's captivating and dynamic cities, all the while having the support of a well-established and trusted international organization. 

Along with your fellow interns on the program, you will also connect with local professionals in your career field at your internship placement. As with most small cities, the working atmosphere can be a little more informal than other places, although it depends on the type of workplace. Galway workplaces offer a welcoming and inclusive culture where most colleagues socialize and eat meals together, which helps interns acclimate to their new team and get to spend time learning about the local Irish culture. 



Complete a full-time internship abroad and lay the groundwork for your future career! Work in a global environment and learn about your field from a cross-cultural perspective.   

ISEP and our partners at Global Experiences work with you to find an internship placement that matches your career aspirations, educational background and location preferences. During the application process, you will conduct a brief phone call with an ISEP Advisor to learn about your goals for interning abroad. If accepted, you will be guaranteed an internship in your desired career field and location.   

In the months leading up to the term abroad, you will be matched with potential employers and interview with them directly to learn more about each other. If everything goes well, the internship is finalized. You will know your internship placement and role before you depart to your host country.  



Completing a 12-week internship with a film production company in Dublin, Ireland has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life both personally and professionally. I would absolutely recommend the experience of going abroad.
