Hey, we’re USIT

The work and travel experts

Founded in 1950-something in the halls of Trinity College and UCD, our student forefathers knew one thing. That the way to explore and experience more – was to earn while you did it. We’ve been creating life-shaping work and travel experiences ever since. Whether you want to fund your summer in the US at camp or on a J1, bankroll your gap year with a working holiday, or use your degree to get ahead on a professional internship – USIT opens up a world of opportunities.
