Study Abroad in Dublin

What to Expect in Dublin

Study abroad in Dublin to begin your journey in the cultural center (and heart) of Ireland. 

Just think, you’ll be studying in Dublin, the City of Literature that’s home to such greats as George Bernard Shaw, Oscar Wilde, William Butler Yeats, and Samuel Beckett. 

Stroll along the River Liffey, visit Dublin Castle, and take in an Irish play at the Abbey Theatre. Enjoy the energetic music scene and lively theatre with your new local and international friends. (Did we mention that the Irish are known for their hospitality?) And when you need to get away, you’ll discover outdoor adventures just a short train or bus ride away. 

No matter your interests, there is something for everyone studying abroad in Dublin. 

Our Dublin study abroad programs and internships have it all, whether you want to hone your craft on our Writers Program, sharpen your theatre skills with Intensive Acting, tap into Dublin’s thriving software and tech industries, or work a full-time internship.
