Office of International Programs
The Dublin Summer Internship Program provides students with a summer experience that will assist in their professional development, as well as introduce them to the international work force with firsthand interaction. Successful candidates are clear about their interests and goals, thoughtfully prepare for their internships in advance of their summer arrival, and are ready to work hard. There are placements available in almost every industry, for almost every academic, and professional interest. There are no placements in hospitals or laboratories of any kind.
Orientation in Dublin: May 31, 2014

Boston College Ireland (BCI) has provided in-country support for BC students studying and interning in Ireland. Drawing upon their ever-growing network in Dublin, BCI staff connects students to diverse opportunities that range from innovative local businesses to global names in finance, communications, or sports management. Students work directly with the Office of International Programs (OIP) and BCI staff to identify the right individual placements based on skills, interests, and goals.
Housing and Meals
Students live on the University College Dublin (UCD) campus in one of their newest dorm spaces. UCD is located about 15 min by bus from the heart of Dublin and the BCI office, located on St. Stephan’s Green. Housing is suite-style, where groups of BC students share kitchen and living space, and have their own bedrooms. As part of the program fee, BC students are given a bus pass that can be used all over Dublin for the duration of their placement. Meals are not included, but there is a cafeteria and convenience store on the UCD campus, as well as a number of local restaurants.
Scholarships & Grants
Students are eligible for the McGillycuddy-Logue Travel Grant through the OIP. Eligibility and application information can be found on the OIP scholarship website.
While there is no coursework component to the Dublin Internship Program, BC students may contact and work with directly with faculty and their degree program dean’s office to plan a concurrent independent study.
Students are responsible for making their own travel arrangements to and from Dublin, as well as making their way from the airport to the orientation location.
The Office of International Programs reserves the right to update, change, or cancel any BC Summer program without notice due to unexpected events abroad, curriculum, or enrollment issues.
