Each year, the College of Europe accepts students who wish to study at post-graduate level at its campuses in Bruges, Belgium or Natolin, Poland. The College offers a number of European-focused postgraduate programmes taught through English and French in an international environment that offers students a chance to experience broad linguistic and cultural diversity.

These scholarships offer an excellent opportunity for Irish students and graduates who are interested in working in Europe to develop their knowledge and skills and to have a unique study abroad experience.
Students interested in applying for a position in the College of Europe should visit the College’s website at www.coleurope.eu and select the Masters programme which they would like to undertake.

Links to Employer Websites We have added a new section to the website which will allow you to link directly to websites of many Irish and international employers. You will find it in the Jobs section under Links to Graduate Employers. This section will be updated on a regular basis so you should check it from time to time.
The website of the Irish Immigration Centre in Boston is a valuable source of information on all sorts of topics relating to working and living in the USA. It provides up to date information on the various categories of visa as well as details on employment opportunities. Of particular interest is the FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) section. The website address is: http://www.iicenter.org/
The Jobweb website is an excellent starting point for accessing useful information and contacts in the USA. This website has a stream dedicated to students and provides advice and information on all aspects of the job search, including a list of useful Job Search sites. It can be accessed at: http://www.jobweb.com
Another useful website with information on how to find an internship in the USA is the CIEE website. http://www.councilexchanges.org/jobsusa/. CIEE is the Council on International Educational Exchange - the organisation which sponsors the J1 visa programmes which enable many thousands of Irish students to travel to the USA each summer. This organisation also sponsors the J Internship visa for students undertaking a Cooperative Education placement in the USA. This visa can also be used by graduates in the first year after completing full-time education, providing they have an offer of an internship from a US employer and they can provide some evidence of their intention to return to Ireland when the visa expires. CIEE work in partnership with USIT NOW in promoting international work programmes.
The USIT website is another very useful source of information on all their services to students. Visit their website at: http://www.usitnow.ie and select 'USA Work and Travel' for details of the US programmes.
