Internship Programmes

An internship abroad is an amazing way for you to learn new skills, improve your language and experience a new culture. The programmes are open to students, graduates and Erasmus participants and can be completed at any time of the year.

Internships are periods of work experience offered by employers to provide you with an opportunity to learn about the working environment, gain experience in your chosen sector and improve your skills. They can last from 4 weeks to 6 months and more.

Internships provide great opportunities to speak directly to people who have experience in the work you aspire to; and their knowledge of the job and working environment will give you a greater understanding of what you need to do to progress.

The Important points

  • Internships are unpaid. 
  • Internships will be matched to your skills, experience and desired sector.
  • You may be interviewed via skype, phone or in person before beginning your internships.
  • Your internship depends on language level, the quality of your C.V. and letter of motivation and relevant studies in relation to your required internship.
  • Your internship can be terminated due to negligence, poor behaviour, dismissal from work or criminal behaviour.
  • Our internships in Budapest are available all year, but we recommend booking at least 2 months before you plan to arrive.

  • Paula

    (Madrid, Spain)

    This experience have been really positive for me. I have learned how to live independently, how to value a lot of things (a job, a weekend, to do the shopping, to save money, to spend money in a responsible way, etc.). I also have demonstrated to myself that I am a professional and that I enjoy teaching a lot. Now I know that I am qualified to be a teacher in a different country with a different language. I recommend this programme for everybody because it is fantastic!

  • Asisa

    (Kronach, Germany)

    First of all, I really love Cork! The people are very nice and friendly. My placement was with a very cool and friendly company as well. I enjoyed the time with my cool colleagues and boss! My work was familiar to me because I translated documents like I am learning in Germany. I would recommend an internship in Cork for every student because it is worth it. You improve your language skills and learn the culture. The Irish accent is also very cool but funny as well! So, I really enjoyed my time here. Thank you Partnership International!

  • Steph

    (Berlin, Germany)

    With my internship, organised by Partnership International, I got to visit many different Irish companies and was involved with introducing international students to them. I was also involved with inductions and orientations for foreign students. My work also included office administration. My colleagues were really nice so the working experience was very good. And I got to see a bit of Ireland while there. I’ve been to the Cliffs of Moher, a whiskey distillery, a falconry and many places more. So, overall it was a great experience and I would totally recommend it!

  • Aneta

    (Czech Republic)

    Ireland is an absolutely nice country, people are very kind and friendly, the nature is beautiful even if the weather is not as good as you’d expect. I lived in the city of Cork. It’s not so big but it’s really nice and you cannot get lost there.

    I got this opportunity thanks to Partnership International. I worked in Cork for a month and I can say it was the best practical training which I ever had.

  • Christian

    (Berlin, Germany)

    So after all, I have to say it was an absolutely great opportunity to get to know a new country/city, people and to make an intercultural experience. I am lucky that Partnership International organised everything so well and that they were hands-on to their students the entire trip. Thanks very much for everything and keep doing what you are doing! It will definitely not be my last time in Ireland and you helped me to open new ways! Cheers!

    I really liked doing an internship in Cork for 3 months. In fact, I’m going to stay here another 3 months (the company where I did the internship hired me!). The city is nice and everybody is very kind, friendly and open-minded. The worst for me, as Spanish, is the weather and the prices. My English is improving a lot and I travelled around this awesome island, so I think as a vital experience it was perfect. I’ve made a great decision taking this internship with Partnership International, the welcome was excellent as was the company where I did my internship.

  • Laura

    (Bordeaux, France)

    My internship has given me the opportunity to learn a lot and to improve my professional skills in a foreign language. It was a great opportunity for me to gain practical skills and work within a professional team. The lessons I learned as an intern are still with me today and I’m thankful to all the team of Partnership International who were a real pleasure to deal with. I would recommend an experience like this to everyone.
