    Study and unpaid internship opportunity for EU students

    Do you want to improve your English and your employability skills at the same time? NCG Dublin has many years’ experience in organising successful local work experience programmes for young people under the Erasmus+ programme so we know how to arrange and successfully monitor internships for our students.

    Why choose Work Experience?

    At NCG Dublin we offer the Work Experience Programme for our European students who would like to have the opportunity to gain valuable experience in a working environment and gain the relevant knowledge and skills needed for a job while practising English they learned in the classroom.

    Work Experience is a chance to spend time in Ireland studying English and doing an unpaid professional or vocational placement in a local company. Internships provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate their ability to apply classroom knowledge and to strengthen their professional work skills.

    Students will gain first-hand knowledge of an organization and an industry and will acquire valuable job skills which will enhance their CV. Internships are also an excellent way of networking and developing contacts and professional references.
