About

Global Experiences provides you the chance to immerse yourself in Irish culture, and gain valuable professional experience in your approved career field. We work with you, and all our interns, one-on-one to place you in a tailored internship. During your time abroad, you’ll learn essential career skills from industry professionals.

I would do it all over again!

I loved my whole experience in Dublin with GE! The application process was dedicated to finding out my interests, personality, and goals to find an internship that was perfect for me. I loved my internship and the amazing people I got to work with! The GE leaders in Dublin took great care of us if we ever had any questions or problems, and they held several events throughout the program to help us discover new events/places in Dublin and around Ireland. Living in Ardcairn House was also great - the staff were friendly, you're walking distance from city centre, and you get your own room! The GE team, the amazing new friends I made in my program, and my internship truly made me feel welcomed and I can honestly call Dublin my second home. I would definitely recommend GE and studying abroad in Dublin to anyone who loves culture, adventure, nature, and maybe a drink or two!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Travel! Dublin is great, but Ireland's countryside is absolutely stunning. You're also just a quick (and cheap!) flight away from seeing the rest of Europe, so budget/plan to visit other countries because 3 months flies by so fast!

Dublin Internship

I absolutely loved my experience and wish I could do it all over again every day since returning back to the States. From the people to the complete immersion, I felt like a "Dubliner" by the end of my internship. I still am fortunate enough to keep in contact with some of my colleagues I worked with over the summer. I built friendships that will last a lifetime. I am grateful to have had this experience! In and out of the office, I learned a lot about Ireland, in general, and about myself. Yes, it was the summer but I did not mind getting up and going into work. I was always greeted with a friendly "Hiya" and felt like I belonged. The other girls in the program also made my experience so special and fun. We grabbed drinks after work and traveled together on the weekends. I loved every minute! Thanks a million, Global Experiences!

Business Administration Intern in Dublin

I had the best experience I could have had in Dublin. I felt right at home in the city. It was also a great location to travel around Europe on the weekend as our group did this Spring. Lara and Peter (the global experiences team in Dublin) are always there if there are any questions or concerns. I was a business administration intern at a company with sustainability values which fit right in with my interests. This program helped me to grow as a person very much. Working in a a different country is an experience that helped me to learn a lot about myself. The housing just changed for this program as well and we all really liked it. The people that I met in this program were also amazing. If you have this opportunity, I would go for it! It was truly one of the best three months of my life.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
Meeting all new people was definitely the most nerve-racking but they all ended up being great.

Amazing Experience

For spending three months abroad I could not be more pleased with choosing Dublin! It was an amazing city with access to many tours to visit all of Ireland. Along with having many adventures to take on in Ireland, it allowed amazing access to visit other European countries for decent prices. Some of the places I visited which I got to go for a decent price were: London, Paris, Spain, and Rome. Which were all also short flights from the Dublin airport being a pretty central location for being able to visit the other countries. The internship was such an inspiring and educational experience! I truly learned a lot and could not have asked for a better internship, co-workers or supervisors. The events provided by global experience were also wonderful! They really helped to meet everyone else in the program and really helped me to settle in! The coordinators were also very helpful and were always there for anyone, even if it was just to talk.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
One thing I would change would be to work as much as I possibly could have before going away, to have more money as well as, to have a set plan on how to budget my money. Also, to take into consideration the amount of money I would have spent traveling to different countries and to have planned how many and what countries I would go to before going abroad to help with the budgeting.

Government Internship: Abigail Brown

I had the opportunity to intern with the Fianna Fail party in Dublin, Ireland for the spring semester of my sophomore year of college. At first, I was nervous being so far away from home and leaving everything I had known behind to start new for three months, but honestly it was the best decision of my life. I wish I could go back and tell myself to not get nervous and to get excited for the best three months of your life. Even if you are the slightest bit hesitant about GE just take the jump and do it. I am so grateful and glad that I had this opportunity and went for it and could not recommend this program enough. Everything about this program was perfect: our housing was amazing, my internship was perfect, and the city of Dublin Ireland was fantastic. I truly will remember this trip for a lifetime and would not be where I am without them that is for sure.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
Meeting my supervisor for the first time, but now he and I are very close and the amount that he has helped me for school and my career path has made me so grateful for him.

An unforgettable experience!

Participating in this program was the best decision I have made in my academic career. Getting real work experience while exploring a new country (plus a few others on weekends) was an experience I could not pass up. The internship that Global Experiences placed me with was a great fit and I feel it has solidified the career path that I wish to take. The trips that were planned for us through GE were so much fun and they housing accommodation they placed us in was wonderful! The Global Experiences staff, specifically Sara, Lara, and Peter, were so helpful from the very first step of application all the way through the end of my internship. My fellow GE interns have become my second family, and the great city of Dublin has become my second home and I highly encourage anyone considering this program to go for it!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Budget your money as much as you can before arrive and throughout the trip, as well.

Solicitor's Firm Internship

My three months in Dublin with Global Experiences were some of the best of my life. This internship gave me the chance to learn so much more about myself and be able to grow and be so much more independent. Working in a foreign country gives you an experience truly unlike any other and has the chance to open up so many opportunities for you. I loved learning all about Dublin and Ireland and seeing all it had to offer while also getting the chance to develop new professional skills and learn about a future career path for myself. It was a one of a kind experience and I'm so glad I got to experience it. Global Experiences made everything so easy and problem free and Lara is awesome about being there for the interns just enough where you still feel independent but have a friend if you need one. I am so grateful for my time in Dublin and with Global Experiences.

What would you improve about this program?
I did not love the housing as it was very separated and did not give us much chance to hang out in groups or be social while at Griffith. I would also recommend that instead of giving us a 7 day unlimited leap card at the beginning we would just be issued a refillable one with money on it instead.

Psychology Intern Experience

My experience was very unique and surprising for me. I got to work for an organization assisting the lives of a disadvantaged ethnitcy I had no awareness of. The cultural experience was probably intensified for me because I got an insight on so much more history with my placement. Being immersed in a different culture was already enough to contribute to my professional and personal growth but being exposed to this type of internship allowed me to always think on my toes and assess my strengths and weaknesses. The social activities provided by GE was probably one of my greatest highlights however, from the scenery to the social events I felt like I made a new home in Dublin. The location coordinator was always there when and if I needed her and she always made the events fun and included some extras that pertained to our interests. I even considered living abroad for a longer period and she directed me to the ways how. I felt completely safe in this program but not like I had a baby sitter. Would definitely recommend this program to anyone and even considering it again for myself.

What would you improve about this program?
Instead of a visitors leap card purchase an actual leap card with credit on it.

Marketing / Communications Intern

This has been one of the best experiences of my life. The amount of valuable job experience I gained from my host company is more than I would have ever imagined. The company that I was matched with was exactly what I was looking for. My co-workers were great and I was given real responsibility within the company not just typical "intern tasks". I enjoyed going to work each day and then getting to explore the most amazing places every weekend. Ireland is full of beautiful scenery and living in Dublin was ideal as we were close to great restaurants, bars, and shopping. We received just the right amount of support from GE as I always felt supported but never babysat. They also did an incredible job on roommate matching! my roommate and I were always together and had a blast the whole time. This has seriously been the opportunity and adventure of a lifetime and I would recommend it to anybody and everybody!

What would you improve about this program?
Griffith college was not an ideal place to live for 3 months. Especially being a recent college graduate, it felt like I was really taking a step backwards living in a dorm.

Market Research Internship Dublin

I had a wonderful time in Dublin, the GE staff did an amazing job and placing me in the exact internship that I was looking for, and the staff was great at helping us all settle into life in Ireland. It was great to have the staff so accessible, and they had a bunch of fun events to help us enjoy Ireland. Dublin is a very lively city, and it was fun to just walk around and pop into different restaurants, and shops and exploring the city. This experience was one that I will take with me the rest of my life, and that is largely because the staff was able to give me great internship placement, as well as matching me up with others in the housing that I could get along with. The friends I made there I feel are people I will keep in contact with, and have fun with for years to come. It was truly and experience unlike anything I have ever gone through before. I would recommend the study abroad program from GE to anyone that is looking for some great learning experiences as well as a lot of fun.

What would you improve about this program?
The only suggestion that I have for the program would be to extend the check out day. We finished our internship of a Friday afternoon, and had to check out of the accommodations on Saturday morning, I would have liked to have a little more time to pack and maybe have one last day to hang out with, and say goodbye to all the people in the group. It just seemed a little rushed, we had to run home after the last day and frantically pack before needing to leave the next day.

Obtained A Better Sense of Myself

I came here to improve my resume within music production; however, I ended up leaving this experience with a much more understanding of myself and more wisdom about life. This opportunity and my placement specifically has led me in the right direction to develop myself and improve upon the way i approach things in life. I am very grateful for this opportunity and will use the knowledge that I have gained to the betterment of myself and my love ones around me. Please note that everyone experience will not be like mines, but I would advise everyone to come with an open mind and be willing to do what you wasn't expecting to do. You'll never know what you will get out of it!

What would you improve about this program?
Have the jobs/positions directly geared towards participant's interest.

First Internship Abroad Experience

This was a once in a life-time experience! I would do this internship experience with GE 100 more times if I could. The staff are very welcoming and kind! They are extremely responsive to any issues we may have. Furthermore, my internship placement was spot on with what I wanted! This experience will greatly augment my career aspirations. If you are torn between a few programs just stop now and chose this program!! Cheers!

What would you improve about this program?
This program can be improved be giving a small summary and average cost of all the possible expenses outside of the program. Traveling to my internship was a cost that I forgot to put in my budget.

Research Assistant Intern

I interned at UCD as a research assistant intern over the summer in Dublin, Ireland. This was one of the best experiences that I have had in both my educational and professional careers thus far! My placement allowed me to network with other academics, work on several studies, and refine my skills working in academia. I can honestly say that this helped me decide my future, and it greatly assisted me in preparing me for my PhD.

What would you improve about this program?
Some of the roommate situations were not spectacular, and rooming arrangements should be better considered.

Social Service Intern in Dublin

Global experiences exceeded all of my expectations. My goal before starting this program was to have a better idea of what I want to do with my future. I knew I wanted to study abroad before entering college, and I was so happy when I found out that I can get internship experience in the field I was interested at the same time. Global Experiences helped with every step of the process from the very beginning and until the end. They were always available to help with any problem whether it was about the internship or the location. I cannot thank GE enough for this once in a lifetime experience.

What would you improve about this program?
The one thing I wish could be adjusted was the cost of the program. I understand this is hard to do, but I feel if the price went down more people would be able to participate in this amazing opportunity.

Would Do it Again if Given the Opprotunity

This semester was the only good time for me to study abroad, and my time in Dublin has given me the chance to live and experience a different culture and lifestyle, from the people I met and connected with to the amazing historical places within the city itself. My favorite memories were seeing the Book of Kells, where I got to learn about the history of its making and being able to explore Trinity College's Old Library; go and take pictures of the Cliffs of Moher and explore Belfast, and took part in a two day festival for Chinese New Year at the Irish Emigration Museum.
For future participants, I would check if the housing accommodation lets you barrow bedding items and like as I did not know about my accommodation offering that until my final day. I would also recommend using the tram luas alongside the public buses as the former gets you to places more quickly and easier to understand compared to the buses, but using both the luas and buses can help you get around Dublin (though keep an eye on how much money your spending on them). I would also recommend in exploring the city as much as you can, especially by joining groups of your interest or just going out to the bars and nightclubs.
