INTERNSHIP

Eligibility

Minimum GPA: 2.0

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.

All interns will participate in the International Work Culture Seminars. Designed to help students succeed in their internship but also prepare for their future career, seminar topics will vary and cover soft skills, employer hiring practices, improving professional communication skills, building a professional social media profile, and adapting to work environments. Guest speakers and career-focused field trips and activities will be an important part of the experience.
