Our Programs

EUSA organizes short-term work experience opportunities throughout Europe for students enrolled in top-ranked universities. Operating in partnership with educational institutions, our placements are designed to integrate academic courses with professional work experience.

While providing exposure to the professional world, participating organizations enjoy the benefit of hosting bright, well-motivated and flexible students for short-term, unpaid placements.

Are you an organization interested in taking on a student for an unpaid work placement?

Whether your needs are general and ongoing or pertain to specific projects and whether you are a multinational corporation or a small business, chances are we will have enthusiastic students interested in working for you.

Students come from a wide-range of fields including: business; law; sciences; marketing; and arts, to name a few. Our interns are available for 6 to 12 week periods each academic term, including summer.

The Placement Process

Placements are arranged by an experienced team working with each student on an individual basis. The Placement team make a considerable effort to match each student to an appropriate placement and to monitor the students throughout the semester.

  1. We will interview the students by telephone or on their campus in the US before they arrive to ascertain their interests, skills, and experience.
  2. The Placement team will then match them with the most suitable placement based on the requirements and job description each company has provided.
  3. We then send a CV to the company for review, and if approved, an interview is arranged between the student and the prospective employer. No student will be accepted by an employer without this interview procedure.
  4. If the interview is satisfactory to both parties, a starting date can then be arranged.

Please note: If for any reason an employer is unsatisfied with the student - either with their CV or during the interview stage, there is NO obligation to accept that student. Simply let the Placement team know and they will attempt to find a more suitable candidate.

We have three intakes a year with semesters occurring approximately as follows:

  • SPRING:  Mid January - mid April
  • SUMMER:  Mid May - mid August
  • FALL:  Mid September - mid December
