First time abroad

10/10

I found out about Stint Ireland from a former classmate that had partaken in their intern program. I checked out their website and was immediately drawn to the gap year program. I was about done with school and had no idea what job I wanted. I didn't have the chance to study abroad while in school, so I knew that I was at a perfect time in my life to move and work for a year. And it was the best experience of my life. I had a million and one different questions throughout the visa process and the Stint team was incredibly helpful the entire time. It was comforting to know that I could stay in a Stint house upon my arrival and get to meet others that were going through the same adventure as me. The Stint team helped make my transition from America to Ireland seamless and the time flew by so quickly, I could barely believe it was time for me to leave after nearly a full year.

A Place for Growth

9/10

My experience with Stint Ireland was wonderful. They were excellent in helping me find an internship as well as several communities to join once I arrived in Dublin. I grew a great deal professionally through my internship and then personally through my friendships with my housemates in a Stint house. This is a experience that can change your life not just by giving you memories of traveling but also through providing opportunities in which you can grow in many different aspects. In the workplace I learned how I could succeed in the world of marketing without prior experience while in the Stint house I learned how I needed to reevaluate how I could be a better friend to those around me. The lessons I learned while I was a part of Stint were invaluable to me in my personal and professional development and I will always look back fondly on those two months.

How can this program be improved?

It could be nice to have more house visits from the Stint staffers to facilitate interaction between the interns/gap-years and staffers. This could also encourage more open dialogue regarding how the interns/gap-years are doing. I saw that sometimes just making the trek to the Stint office during a work day was enough to discourage interns/gap-years from being fully honest with how they were doing.

Stint: Ireland

10/10

Stint was a really great program to be a part of! I loved travelling on the weekends and making new friends in the house, at work, and on the tours. The program was also really great about offering support if you were feeling homesick or having any problems with anything. While I was there my house had a bit of a problem with some of the people who were living there. Upon hearing about it, Stint immediately took action and were nice enough to send us cupcakes! Even gluten free for a fellow celiac housemate. Very thoughtful program, and it was super fun to live and immerse oneself in the culture!

Stint for the win!

10/10

If you're thinking of doing a gap year I highly recommend Stint if you want the process to go stress free! Having never been to Europe before, it was so nice to have everything planned out for me and to know that I had a welcoming community waiting for me. Stint is always there if you have any questions and they're super helpful when it comes to finding a job, doing taxes and making friends. They always plan really fun weekend adventures and some weekday events to meet everyone and explore Ireland. Having Dublin as a base, I was also able to explore so many other countries because of cheap flights and Stint was always there with suggestions. This past year has helped me find some direction in life and I've met some lifelong friends. I was so sad to leave but I hope to come back to Ireland soon! I really recommend Stint if you want a life changing year!

Highly Recommend This Program!

9/10

I have always been in love with all things Irish and when this opportunity became available, I immediately jumped on it and I am so glad I did. I spent two months interning with Mendicity, which is a non-profit organization that helps the homeless in Dublin. I am truly grateful for the opportunity to spend time with those people, learning from them and hearing their stories. I love the work that the organization is doing and I would love to go back and visit someday.
I could not have asked for a better program than Stint for my internship. The team is full of great people who were extremely helpful and attentive to anything I needed during my stay. They planned fun activities for us to get to know the other Stinters and to explore Ireland in our free time. I made some great friends through those trips and activities that I still talk to today. I truly appreciate the Stint team's support and help, not only during my two months in Ireland, but also in the months leading up to and after my stay. Their team honestly made Dublin feel like a second home to me and I can't wait to go back and visit someday.

How can this program be improved?

It was a bit costly overall, but I think the entire experience was well worth the money spent.
