INTRA is the name for internships or co-operative education at DCU; it stands for INtegrated TRAining. Many students undertake this compulsory internship, for a specified period, as part of their course. This enables them to apply lessons learned in the lecture theatre to a professional setting. Employers benefit from access to a supply of talented and motivated students who can make an effective contribution to the workplace. It also provides employers with an opportunity to access potential future employees. INTRA has been at the heart of the DCU experience for over 25 years.
INTRA offers an opportunity for employers to connect their businesses with ambitious and energetic students who can bring specialist skills, motivation, energy and new ideas to the work place.
