Study Abroad and Intern in Ireland!

Offered All Fall, Spring, & Summer Terms

 

Ireland is a beautiful country brimming with breathtaking scenery, music, and a rich and complex history. The Warrington College of Business Administration’s semester-long study abroad program in Dublin offers an experience unlike any other. Students have the opportunity to live and work in the capital of Ireland, while completing courses for their UF degree. Dublin is a center for domestic and international business and students will have the opportunity to intern in enterprises that range from start-ups to multinational organizations. This program is ideal for UF students pursuing a business degree or business minor, or students interested in completing general education courses or upper division electives in a beautiful European city. Non-UF business students enrolled in an SUS (State University System) institution may also apply.

The City: Dublin, Ireland

As the capital and largest city in Ireland, the city of Dublin offers the amenities of a culturally rich city. However, a small population of 1.5 million, gives Dublin the welcoming atmosphere of a small town. The citizens of Dublin are renowned for their friendliness, and they are also young: One in twelve Dubliners is a student. As a result the city is abuzz with activity and visitors will be enthralled by the numerous restaurants, art galleries, museums, theaters, shops and music venues.

The School: CAPA and Griffith College

CAPA International Education is assisting UF in coordinating the Dublin program. CAPA is an international education organization committed to empowering student learning in urban environments. Their collaborative and personalized approach to study abroad has made CAPA a trusted global education leader since 1972. Established in 1974 by Diarmuid Hegarty, with campuses in Dublin, Cork and Limerick, Griffith College is the largest independent higher education institution in Ireland with a student population of around 7,000 students from over 77 countries. The campus spans seven acres located within a mile of St. Stephen’s Green Park in central Dublin. The college and housing facilities are only a short walk from the River Liffey, and restaurants and museums.
