Internships/PCT

THIS SITE IS CURRENTLY UNDER REVISION

StudyUSA Higher Education Consultants Ltd. (StudyUSA) together with CIEE, a U.S. leader in educational exchange, and partnering with International Internships LLC, offer Internships and Professional Career Training (PCT) Programs  to students interested in working short-term in the U.S. These two programs are essentially the same but the PCT program requires some work experience whereas the INT program is for students in university or those who have recently graduated.  The Internship program can be placed or self-places.  Please note that for Placed programs, applicants pay a placement fee.

What is the INTERNSHIP (INT) Program?

The Internship (INT) program gives you the opportunity work in the United States for up to fourteen months and is for students who are still studying or who have just graduated. StudyUSA is the official representative of CIEE, the largest educational exchange organization in the United States, and it is through CIEE that we are able to offer this program in Cyprus. To read about CIEE and these programs in detail, please visit their www.ciee.org/intern.

a. Self-placed:  Currently under CIEE, Internships offered are only for Self-Placed Students, meaning students must find their own jobs and then apply to us for sponsorship. 

If you would like to try to locate your own internship, please read CIEE’s suggestions on how to secure an internship at: https://www.ciee.org/in-the-usa/research-training/intern-professional-training/for-interns/find-internship . CIEE also keeps a list of available internships on their website http://available-internships.ciee.org/. We have had students secure internships through these suggestions so please do not be discouraged! We have also had students secure job placements through their universities in Cyprus so please also speak to your professors.

b. Placed: Students who do not have job offers and need assistance in securing an internship would apply as Placed students. Our cooperation with International Internship LLC has enabled us to help you find jobs in almost all areas of work in the United States, except Engineering and medical related jobs.  Only jobs in the hospitality fields are paid jobs, the rest are unpaid.  In this case, StudyUSA, together Internship International would locate an appropriate internship opportunity for the student. The cost of this program includes the INT Program Fee plus a Placement Fee of $1,700.
