INTRA Internships

Attract Top Talent

Do you need support for specific projects or require additional resources at certain times of the year?  Would you like an opportunity to train and evaluate potential future employees?  If the answer is yes, you might consider hiring a DCU INTRA student as a temporary resource without adding a permanent payroll cost.  Our ambitious, energetic students can bring their specialist skills and knowledge to your company and contribute effectively to your business.  They are work-ready and motivated to perform to a high level.  Please read our Employer Guidelines [pdf] if you would like to know more.

Courses with an INTRA Placement

Many undergraduate and some postgraduate courses at DCU require students to complete a mandatory internship which is fully assessed.  The start date and duration of the internship varies from course to course.  Please review the INTRA Calendar [xls] for an overview of the courses, internship dates and recruitment period.
