We strongly recommended that you apply as soon as possible. Internship positions are selective; students who demonstrate both professionalism and commitment throughout the process are most successful in securing placements.
The internship placement process involves three video interviews: a screening interview with your Internship Coach, a job placement interview with your study center placement coordinator, and a final interview with your host site supervisor. The host site retains the final decision regarding placements, so it’s important that your interviews reflect your maturity, adaptability, curiosity, and commitment to both your career interests and the host organization. Upon successfully completing your study center placement coordinator interview, CEA guarantees you a placement based on the personal, professional, and cross-cultural goals reflected in your interview. All placements will be secured two weeks prior to arrival.
Upon placement, you’ll automatically be enrolled in your internship course. Prior to departure, you will be asked to also select your preferred elective courses. You will be enrolled into courses based on their availability. It is in your best interest to have multiple alternative courses approved by your home university prior to your departure due to course availabilities. Please consult with your academic advisor at your home university on credit pre-approval guidelines.
The host institution has offered the following courses in the past. Please note that course listings may not be finalized until the start of the term; we’ll post an updated list when the host institution finalizes its offerings.

Get out and explore! Excursions are offered for most semester, year, and summer programs*. Semester students are typically offered between two to three excursions and summer study students are typically offered between one to two excursions. You'll receive a calendar of excursions during orientation; here are a few day and overnight excursions we've offered in the past.
Galway, Connemara, and the Aran Islands
Relax as a private bus takes you and your fellow students across Ireland, from east to west, to the Cliffs of Moher, a spectacular vista of coastline and dramatic rock face. You’ll continue to Galway, the country’s fourth largest city and considered by many to be the cultural capital of Ireland. Enjoy the spectacular sunset over Galway Bay as you discover Galway’s charmingly narrow pedestrian streets. The next day, you’ll depart for Connemara, home to beautiful and rugged landscapes where the Gaelic language is still spoken. We’ll take a ferry to the Aran Islands, where you’ll experience a link with a time long passed. Explore Dun Aengus, a fort that dates back to the Iron Age, before returning to Galway to experience live traditional music in local pubs.
Kerry is known as “The Kingdom” for good reason. Home to some of the most magnificent scenery in Ireland, from the gorgeous Killarney National Park to the jaw-dropping beauty of the Dingle Peninsula, we’ll venture off the typical bus tour routes so you can experience these places in a unique fashion, such as an early morning horse ride through the park and a (gentle) bike ride to Muckross House and Abbey. You’ll learn about the park’s flora and fauna, as well as the lives of the Kerry Chieftains that once resided there. No introduction to Kerry would be complete without a visit to Fungi the Dolphin; local fishermen will take you out to sea to meet Dingle’s biggest celebrity and learn about his Atlantic home. Enjoy a tasty lunch under the canopy of trees at Torc Waterfall and mingle with locals while experiencing the nightlife of Killarney town. The trip to Kerry offers a delicious combination of action, history and nature that is sure to leave you spellbound.
Glendalough and Powerscourt Gardens
During this day trip, a private bus takes you to County Wicklow and Glendalough, the site of an old Irish monastery founded by St Kevin. Explore this scenic setting in the Wicklow Mountains in a valley between two lakes (“Gleann da loch”) and take a tour of the site. This classic example of an Irish monastery dates back to a golden era when Ireland was referred to as the “island of saints and scholars.” On the way back to Dublin via the coast road, we’ll stop at Bray, one of Ireland’s favorite seaside resorts.
Travel north by private coach to Belfast, the capital of Northern Ireland. Once battered by the “Troubles” between Catholics and Protestants, since 1998’s Good Friday Agreement, Belfast enjoys the hustle and bustle of any major city with its shops, bars, and restaurants full of life and activity. As a reminder of the past, we’ll visit “Loyalist” and “Republican” quarters of the city to view colorful murals that depict the bitterness of a divided community.
