International Internships

Like Study Abroad, International Internships are an opportunity to spend a semester overseas. Interning abroad will introduce you to the challenges of a career, assist you in the transition between college life and the work environment, and help you build self-confidence and self-awareness.

You’ll develop broad competencies by applying learned concepts to professional practice, and strengthen personal development by living and working in a foreign environment. You’ll meet new friends, travel to exciting places and make memories that will last a lifetime.

We sponsor full-time internship programs in Dublin, London, Madrid and Paris, the cost of which is roughly equivalent to spending a semester-in residence at Stonehill. Generally, all financial aid is applicable to a semester abroad.

Dublin Internship Program

An internship in Dublin will give you the chance to work with internationally recognized companies while experiencing the welcoming warmth of a small city. Because of Ireland’s relatively small population, you might find yourself getting a byline in the Sunday Tribune, or working for the Green Party.
