Our partner in Ireland is a university office that serves more than 2,400 international students, helping them to integrate into the academic culture at the university. The office provides information on application processes, university matters, accommodation, and many other topics before students arrive. After arrival, the office actively supports them through advising and social events during their stay. Interns accepted for a placement will fully integrate into the day-to-day life of the office and join in assisting international students.
The university is one of the four universities that make up the National University of Ireland. Founded in 1845, it educates undergraduates and graduate students in a broad range of academic disciplines. Well known worldwide for its excellence as a teaching and research institution, it attracts students from around the world.
Interns will gain broad experience in working with international students, including arrival programming, adjusting to University, and leading excursions. They will gain first-hand experience of working with academic and administrative departments within a university setting. Interns can be involved in projects relating to incoming students, student life, publicity and marketing of IEO services, and working with UCC international alumni. This internship allows students the chance to develop and hone communication and organizational skills in an international context. Some example tasks include:
