Summer 2014 Ireland Internship Program Review

This summer a group of UT Dallas students traveled to Dublin, Ireland to work in internships. The Career Center offered this 8-week internship program through a partnership with the Education Abroad office and Connect-123. Students from all over campus worked at a wide range of internship locations, including a hospital, a law office, and an electric bike company. This program allowed the students to get great professional experience related to their fields, all while experiencing Irish culture. Plus, they earned academic credit for the internships through internship courses at UT Dallas!
