Whether you want to gain experience drafting a press release for a public relations firm, work in event management or financial services, or explore non-profit management, the Arcadia Dublin Internship consists of much more than mere observation or filing paperwork. As a Dublin intern, you are likely to have access to senior management and decision makers. This is a city of boutique firms, giant multinational organizations, and start-ups, plus a young, talented, well-educated, multi-cultural talent pool, and you will be part of it. In addition to the new content for your resume, this will be one of the most significant learning experiences of your life. 

Beyond the internship course, you will enroll in three electives. In addition to courses offered at Arcadia's Dublin Center, courses in business, psychology, economics, film, cultural and media studies are available through Dublin Business School (DBS), Ireland's largest independent third level institution. While our internship program is not for the timid and will require good time management skills, the chance to work and study in Dublin provides a one-of-a-kind study abroad experience. Your internship course includes:

I had some incredible once-in-a-lifetime experiences, but settling into a routine in Dublin was equally special. By the time I left, Dublin felt like a different kind of home, and I know when I go back I'll still be able to find my way around. ”
