The Global Internship Program is a unique
program that gives students the opportunity to earn academic course credit
while gaining practical internship experience in their field of interest.
Berkeley Summer Sessions works in coordination with
European Study Abroad (EUSA) and Academic Internship Council (AIC) to provide
students with comprehensive academic internship programs and support in various
locations around the world. With decades of placement history and strong
employer networks, EUSA and AIC bring expertise and experience to its
Rather than undergoing a time consuming search on their
own, our team works with students to find connections with firms that will support
their career goals in various locations. We offer placement services in Dublin,
Madrid, and Singapore which combine the benefits of our domestic internship
program with international experience. In addition, participants will receive
comprehensive support from Summer Sessions' professional staff that includes
one-on-one career advising, interview preparation, resume review,
prepared-to-work seminars, and other placement services.
Participation in an internship is supported by enrollment
in a ten-week UC Berkeley online internship course, as well as a local culture
course designed to acclimate participants to the city they will be interning
at. Though the Bay Area site does not have a related culture course, we
encourage participants interning at this location to take an additional course
related to the field in which they are placed to help them further integrate
their professional experience with their academic skills and goals.
Intern along the River Liffey
in Ireland's capital, while learning about the history and culture of Ireland.
Known as the Silicon Valley of Europe, Dublin has a lot to offer in the way of
internships, and placements are available in a large range of industry sectors.
As the center of Irish industry, the city has a very cosmopolitan and
international workforce. Half the population is under the age of 30, and the
city is considered to be very modern and outward looking. Although Dublin is a
large city, it is easy to navigate and students find Dubliners to be very warm
and welcoming. You will be able to take advantage of a wealth of resources at
University College Dublin, where you will be living and taking your on-site
Irish History course.
The Dublin Internship Program offers internships in almost
any field. Once you have been admitted to the program, you will meet with our
team to talk about your interests and background based on which we will find
you an internship in Dublin. We can't promise to find you an internship at a
specific firm or organization, but we do promise to find you an internship that
corresponds to your specific interests and background.
