Internship

The expert team of advisors at EZC Study Abroad will work with you to clearly define your objectives for your internship. The internship can be based on your chosen field of study but can also be in a different field if you wish to explore this.

EZC Study Abroad has a number of regular host companies that we work with on an ongoing basis and we also source new host companies based on a student’s requirements.

An EZC Study Abroad advisor on the ground in Ireland will hold regular meetings with you (every 2 weeks) to obtain feedback on your internship progress. Meetings will also be held with your supervisor at the host company.

This is a non-credit based internship but credit may be applied by speaking to your home institution beforehand.
