To us in Equipeople it is very important that we do as much as possible in advance of the applicants' arrival to ensure that their work experience in Ireland is  
going to be one of the best periods in their life. We want the trip to go as smoothly as possible and so we have compiled some information to help make that

The Application Process
Equipeople's Role in the Placement

There are some requirements in order for students to qualify for our programmes, and some documents that need to be submitted to support their  
applications. All students must provide a letter from their school/college/university confirming that the period of work experience/internship is either:

• A compulsory part of their agricultural education
• Strongly recommended to be completed during their education
• Strongly recommended within 12 months of graduation to develop the student’s future education or professional career
• Funded through Erasmus+, school/college funding or regional/council funding

The placement the students choose to attend should be relevant to their education in some way, for example:

• Agricultural Science
• Equine Studies
• Animal Keeping
• Veterinary Studies
• Environmental Studies
• Horticulture/Landscaping
• Tourism/Hotel Management
• Childcare i.e. Teaching, Nursing, Pedagogy, Social Care

          Short Term           Long Term
• Minimum 4 weeks, maximum 11 weeks
• Host family provide accommodation and meals
• Minimum 12 weeks, maximum 12 months
• Host family provide accommodation, meals, and weekly pocket
• For every six months the student is entitled to 1 week’s holiday
with pocket money
The minimum age for an individual applicant is 17 years of age. For those participating as part of a group, we can allow 16 year old students, as they will have their class network in Ireland as support. Ideally, these 16 years olds should be closer to 17 years of age.

Any student under the age of 18 years will require parental consent to participate in our programmes.

Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any queries from potential applicants to any of the programmes.
