Internships in Europe

Foyle International has a unique opportunity for Northern Irish locals. Under Erasmus+ (KA1: Mobility of Individuals), young people can live and work abroad in Europe, fully funded by the European Union. It is an opportunity to take an internship in the field of hospitality and tourism in a range of destinations across Europe.

Jobs can range from waitering in a bar or restaurant, to working in the office of a travel agency, to working as a beauty therapist in a hotel spa. There is a vast range of jobs available in the field of tourism & hospitality, and you will often be matched to an internship based on your previous experience and skill set.

The internship itself is unpaid but all of your expenses are fully funded under Erasmus+.

Make the most of this opportunity as the UK have now left the European Union and such a unique opportunity may not come around again.

  • Return flights
  • Airport Transfer

We have a range of destinations across Europe and places are limited.




No, not necessarily. Many of the destinations in this project are cities where there is generally quite a good level of English spoken. Regardless, the language barrier in any country where you do not speak the language will be a challenge!

However, if you do have a second language, even at a basic level, it is a great way to improve your language skills. In addition, having a second language will increase your internship opportunities; you will be able to have more interactive job if you can converse easier with the locals.

To apply, you should complete this Expression of Interest form.

You will also need to send us a copy of your CV with a Motivational Letter – outlining the reasons why you want to take part in an Erasmus+ experience (3/4 of a page). Send these to info@foyle.eu
