Study Abroad & Intern inDublin


Make Dublin Your Classroom

Dublin is a young, creative, coastal city that is celebrated for its friendly people, where it's easy to stroll from its charming medieval quarter—through art-filled neighborhoods, markets, and parks—to the Docklands, where tech company headquarters thrive in “Europe’s Silicon Valley”. History and technology buffs, literature, music and theater enthusiasts, and avid tea drinkers will feel at home living, studying, and interning abroad here.

CAPA Dublin students study at Griffith College which has an intimate campus setting and incredibly diverse student body. Students on our direct enroll program study just outside of the city at Maynooth University, which recently won an “Outstanding International Student Satisfaction Award”.

CAPA supported me from the moment I applied to the moment I arrived in Ireland. CAPA made me feel safe and kept me engaged and informed while I was in Dublin.
