About EUSA internships

Gain real world experience, make your resume stand out from the pack and learn about a foreign culture with an international internship! EUSA is a not-for-profit international education organization that implements academically-directed internship programs on behalf of colleges and universities. With more than 35 years of experience, EUSA has placed over 25,000 students in internships across all industries in Europe.
 
EUSA placement teams take the time through individual internship consultation meetings to understand your personal, academic, and professional needs and match you with the customized internship that gives you the best opportunity to achieve your goals. EUSA carefully screens and monitors the companies and organizations we work with through regular contact - including in-person visits and student assessments.
 
EUSA continues to support you throughout your internship - from prompting you to reflect on your developing skills to helping you resolve specific challenges.
 
Where can I intern abroad?
 
London, England
London is a multicultural city that attracts people from around the world yet retains its distinctive "Britishness."
 
Heading to your internship each day on the Tube or a red double-decker bus, you'll live like a Londoner, experiencing this modern capital of business, finance, art, and science firsthand. Going beyond the usual tourist experience, you'll learn to recognize and appreciate subtle cultural and linguistic differences.
 
You will live in modern student residences in safe, centrally located parts of London.  All bedrooms are shared with between two and four students, with communal kitchen and social spaces
 
Dublin, Ireland
Dublin is a charming, small city that prides itself on looking outward to Europe and the wider world.
 
You'll be interning anywhere from a small non-profit to a multinational corporation - when you aren't exploring the city or Ireland's famous countryside. Experience authentic Irish culture - such as subtle differences in language and timekeeping - in ways only possible through living and working in Ireland.
 
You will live in modern student residences in safe, well-located areas of Dublin.  You will have your own bedroom with a shared common area and kitchen.
 
Madrid, Spain
Become a madrileño - taking the Metro to your internship, and sitting at the cafés in La Latina, and joining everyone when you go de marcha at night and experience Madrid’s vibrant nightlife.
 
Madrid attracts people from across Spain, Europe, and the world. There are a lot of adopted madrileños or gatos (cats), as they are called in Madrid, so you’ll be in good company as you explore your new surroundings and develop your language skills.
 
In order to have a fully immersive language experience, you will live with carefully screened Spanish families. A small number of students in Madrid live in international student residences, but this is determined by the university, not the individual student.
 
Paris, France
Paris is the most visited city in the world, but you’ll go beyond a tourist experience.
Your language skills will grow as you converse with your homestay family, maître de stage (internship supervisor), and colleagues.
 
You can still discover the city’s famous monuments, old quarters, cafés, and cabarets...at the same time that you integrate into Parisian life by grocery shopping, commuting to your stage (internship) by métro or bus, living with neighbours from all over the world.
 
In order to have a fully immersive language experience, you will live with carefully screened French families.
 
Prague, Czech Republic
Interning in Prague's modern, English-speaking business and cultural community, you'll develop a unique insight into the life of one of the most beautiful, historic cities in Europe.
 
You'll learn a bit of the language as you live and work alongside Czechs, but the large international community in Prague means that you'll manage in English while honing your intercultural communication skills.
 
Prague has a vibrant cultural scene and nightlife, but you may do like the Czechs and take every opportunity to head to the country for time outdoors and a chance to fully experience authentic the culture, food, and drink.
 
You will live in modern student residences or apartments in safe, centrally located parts of Prague.  All bedrooms are shared with between two and four students, with communal kitchen and social spaces.
 
When does this program take place?

8.5 -10 weeks in summer depending on location and option selected.  Consult the study abroad office for dates.

Do I need a specific major?
EUSA internships are multi-disciplinary across all colleges and departments. Most majors are available but please consult with our staff in advance to confirm. 
Students must work with their academic department faculty and register for their academic discipline’s “internship” course to ensure receiving academic credit. All placements are unpaid. You are able to intern legally because these are unpaid placements for which you are receiving credit at your home institution.
 
You have a great deal of control in directing the placement process and ensuring that EUSA makes the right placement. Once you have been accepted EUSA will reach out to schedule your Individual Consultation Meeting. It's important to keep in mind that the time for you to exercise this control is during the earlier part of the process, in your discussions and correspondence with an EUSA placement manager and even before, as you prepare for this meeting. The best way to prepare is to think about the following questions:

•What previous experience do you have that makes you a suitable candidate?
•What types of tasks & responsibilities do you expect to have in your internship?
•What is your main goal for the internship?
•What specific skills are you hoping to develop?
•What are your future career goals and how does this internship relate to them?
•What kind of credits do you need for this internship?
 
EUSA takes this information very seriously. They will not let you request a type of placement which they do not feel is a realistic possibility and they also expect you not to agree to a type of placement which you are not willing to undertake, but they DO expect you to have at least three areas of interest and three professional competencies students want to work on while interning. After your meeting, EUSA will send you an email to follow up on your discussion and confirm that they have understood your preferences, goals, and academic credit requirements. If you do not believe that the placement manager has understood these, it's essential that you notify them immediately, as once a placement has been arranged for you, you cannot change it.

Passports
U.S. and non-U.S. citizens need a valid passport both to enter other countries and to return to the United States. If you already have a passport, make sure it is valid until at least six months after your return date. If you must apply for or renew a passport, APPLY EARLY, since a minimum of four to six weeks is usually required for processing. During peak travel seasons, more processing time is required. A passport (or evidence of an application submission/renewal) will be required for your application to the program.
