Foyle International is an Erasmus+ partner and has participated in mobility programmes for over 20 years. Internships can be funded through ERASMUS+ or they can be funded privately (EU students only).

In the Republic of Ireland, our work internships and KA2 projects are under Foyle Internship Europe Ltd.

What is Erasmus+? 

Programmes can be supplemented with English Language lessons, cultural and social itinerary including tours, excursions and evening entertainment. 

Finding a good job is hard at the best of times – with so many people going to university and rising unemployment across Europe, competition for places is greater than ever before. But there is a way to give yourself an edge over others, and to give yourself the best chance of securing a job and gaining valuable work experience, and that’s by doing a period of internship.
