Why do an Internship in Dublin

International Internship Course Overview

This course combines work-based learning (i.e. the internship itself) together with seminars to provide students with the opportunity to reflect on and analyze their own learning and development in the workplace through dialogue and written work. The seminars enable students to make the most of their internship placements by providing the opportunity for students to work with their faculty and to exchange ideas with their peers.

At the end of this module learners should be able to:

  1. Exhibit a high degree of understanding of the organization in which they were placed and its culture, as well as the sector in which that organization operates.
  2. Describe and reflect on their internship experience and the ways in which they have developed during the semester as well as to be able to engage with intercultural issues that emerged.
  3. Connect readings and key class themes to their work
    experience.
  4. Reflect on their own performance in the workplace with an awareness of intercultural issues that emerged.

 

The Placement

We strongly believe that careful monitoring and individual support are crucial in arranging suitable and rewarding internships. Our Dublin Internships Program Coordinator works with each student individually from admission to the program to match their skills and background with an appropriate organization, providing pre-departure and on-site support during the placement and internship process. Seminars allow for discussion, analysis, and academic reflection throughout your internship experience. Please note that all internships are unpaid and are for academic credit only.

The Seminars

In order to enhance and contextualize the internship experience, students participate in a variety of seminars designed to provide support to develop their understanding of the Dublin workplace and enable them you to make the most of their experience. Students will work with a faculty member and their peers to reflect upon the experience and exchange ideas.

Students will be assessed on:

  • Their ability to engage analytically with the internship experience;
  • Written assignments throughout the term;
  • A presentation and written final report about their development throughout the process.

By the end of the IIC students should be able to:

  • Understand general aspects of the Dublin sector in which they worked and have a high degree of understanding of the organization in which they were placed
  • Describe and reflect on their internship experience and the ways in which they have developed during the semester as well as be able to engage with intercultural issues that emerged
  • Connect readings and key class themes to their work experience.
