Internships
 

Internships

Our highly individualized placement process supports students at every stage of the internship: from identifying goals, to matching them with a high quality internship, to recognizing opportunities to develop new skills, and articulating the value of their experience.

Internships are the core of every EUSA program, and our core expertise. We place over 1500 students every year in academic internships spanning a wide variety of industries.

How We Manage Internships

EUSA works closely with your institution to coordinate all aspects of your customized program. To ensure the effective management of the placements, EUSA:

  • engages each student in a dialogue to help them articulate their professional goals and interests
  • offers support on your campus, including webinars, workshops,
  • and predeparture orientations to prepare students to make the most of the internship experience
  • provides accessible support and advice throughout the internship
  • requires students to participate in reflective activities to encourage
  • the connection of experiential learning to theoretical concepts and
  • personal development
  • actively seeks feedback throughout the program from you and your students
  • obtains internship supervisors’ and students’ written evaluations
  • shares program assessments with you
EUSA sets the standard in terms of customized internship programming. Their staff stays current with trends in international education, realizes that study abroad and ‘employability’ can truly go hand in hand. From a personal standpoint, they are easy to work with, extremely personable and are always welcome on our campus.

Program Management

Program Management

Our caring and professional local teams support students throughout their study abroad experience: from regular predeparture communication, to comprehensive orientations upon arrival, to providing assistance with problems small and large - including 24-hour emergency response.

EUSA gathers feedback at regular touchpoints in order to address concerns as quickly as possible, and provides detailed program assessments to our partners.

My program directors became more like good friends to me, along with everyone else at EUSA. They were so helpful in terms of making sure everyone was doing ok not just with classes and our internships, but personally.

Cultural Excursions

Our excursions and social programming enhance students' cultural understanding. You can offer your students a chance to see famous historical sites such as the palace of Versailles or Kutná Hora, as well as participatory cultural activities like learning the fundamentals of hurling at a Gaelic games club in Dublin or cooking authentic Spanish food in Madrid.

The Partnership Model

How We Support Our Partners

Universities have different needs and individual students are looking for a distinctive experience. Partnering with EUSA means you can design a program based on the particular needs of your student body, departmental goals, and university initiatives.

  • program development
  • supporting the institutional approval and review process
  • advising and recruitment support (e.g. webinars and campus visits) 
  • regular cooperation and collaboration with our local teams during the program
  • providing written assessments and evaluations from students and internship supervisors 
EUSA is fantastic to work with!
We highly recommend EUSA because they provide exceptional service to our staff and students. They listen to students’ needs and match them with the best internship placements. Our students continuously have positive reviews when they return and this has helped us grow our internship program.

What Our Partners Say
EUSA is a solid provider. I feel like my students are safe and well cared for and getting a high-quality experience.
— King’s College
We have been partners with EUSA for over 10 years, and in that time EUSA has met every obstacle our students have presented them. Their placement process is the most transparent of all of our partners, which the students truly appreciate. Not every student has been happy with their placement, but the local EUSA staff is able to work with the students, helping them trouble-shoot any office problems, as well as making them aware of why it was they were placed in a certain position. It truly has been a wonderful relationship.
— University of Southern California
Berkeley has been partnering with EUSA for the past 10 years. We started with a program in London, and now work with them in multiple cities worldwide. The level of customer service we receive as a university partner, the care shown in the student advising and placement process is incredible - they have helped us to grow a very successful program over the years to hundreds of students in internships each summer. I have complete confidence putting our students in their hands.
— The University of California, Berkeley
I have worked with EUSA at three different universities. I have always been pleased with the quality of the placements and the support received by EUSA staff. EUSA has been quick to respond to any questions or concerns, and our students have overwhelmingly enjoyed their placements, both in terms of the experiential aspect and the professional opportunities and skills they gain through participation.
