About the Location

Ireland is the third largest island in Europe. Dublin, the capital and largest city, is an ancient city and offers a variety of cultural, educational, and social activities. Though Dublin is a large, rapidly growing city, the Old Dublin charm is present everywhere.


Academics

Located in the heart of the city just a few minutes’ stroll from St. Stephens Green, Grafton Street and the Temple Bar district, Dublin Business School enjoys a strong reputation for its student-centered approach to teaching and a high level of academic innovation not. DBS offers a broad range of courses across the curriculum, including business, communications, economics, and psychology.  DBS enrolls more than 9,000 students at its campus in the center of Dublin.

The semester program at DBS is offered in partnership with the Foundation for International Education (FIE).  All FIE students take a foundation Irish Life and Cultures course. The course includes visits to museums and historic sites in Dublin, as well as two weekend excursions outside Dublin.  Students enroll in 3-4 additional elective courses at DBS. 

Internship Course

Students have the option to enroll in a credit-bearing internship as one of their electives. The work environments available to FIE interns cater to almost every major and include the various business sectors, not-for-profit, political, public sector and creative organizations.  Consult the Dublin Internship Placement Areas page for more detailed information about the range of placements available.

Different internships will have different working hours and expectations, but students can broadly expect to be in internship placements for approximately 24 hours a week. Most placements are for three full days a week, each week, every week, from approximately 9 AM to 5 PM each day. An internship offers an unprecedented amount of professional and personal development and is a fantastic way to integrate fully into another country.You will make valuable connections and friends that will enrich your time in Ireland. An internship is however, a serious commitment and you should take it as such.  Students enroll in a graded, credit-bearing internship course alongside their placement.

Additional information about course equivalents for this program is available on the Course Planning Registration for Study Abroad and Study USA page.

Irish literature. My experiences in Dublin provided insight to the stories we read in class. Tours around Dublin, daily encounters, and Irish Life and Culture helped me better understand the complexity of Irish identity in the 1920s (a major theme in Irish literature).
