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.

What are the dates? How much does it cost? How do I apply?
EUSA works in partnership with colleges and universities. Dates, costs, and application process are determined by the university. Complete our “Next Steps” form to see if your school is a EUSA partner and find out how to apply. If your school isn’t a EUSA partner, we’ll send you information about programs who accept applications from outside students.
Do I have to be a Business major?
While some of our partners’ programs are for specific majors, most are open to all majors. You will need to have an appropriate level of French to function effectively in the workplace – talk to your study abroad office to find out what they recommend.
I am an international student. Can I participate?
It is possible as long as you have secured the appropriate visa for France. We are not able to assist with this process beyond providing any documentation required for the French consulate or embassy.
I don’t need credit for my internship. Do I have to do the coursework?
Due to visa and immigration requirements, you must be receiving academic credit in order to participate on the program.

All of our programs are for academic credit and most are eligible for financial aid. Talk to your study abroad office for details. EUSA offers a limited number of scholarships Live, Learn, Intern for students who are underrepresented in study abroad.
I am not a student, can you help me find an internship in Paris?
We can only facilitate internships for students participating in one of our partner institution’s program.
Can I intern with Company Name?
During your Individual Internship Consultation, you can tell us if there’s a particular company you’re interested in. We can’t promise that they will need an intern at the time you are in Paris, or that your skills and development goals are a good match for their needs
We work with thousands of organizations in Europe – ranging from well-known multinational banks to small non-profit organizations. If the specific company you want to work with isn’t a possibility, we’ll still be able to find a great fit for your professional and personal development objectives.
How many credits will I get?
Talk to your study abroad office and academic advisor to find out how your university grants credits for the international internship program.
What is the housing like?
