Work and travel experts

Over 1 million happy travellers

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.

USA this way

All class of '23 grads

Graduated and wondering what's next? The bridge between college and your career - put your CV on the map with our 1-year Grad USA program. You must enter the USA within 12 months of your grad cert. So, if you have an Oct grad cert date, you must book by the end of July to give yourself enough time to get through the application process.

Early birds

€50 off J1 2025

J1 summer '25 bookings are open! And we're celebrating with some sweet summer savings. Lock in our 2024 J1 prices + an extra €50 off when you book before the 28 August.

Cool jobs

(Parents - back in the room). Video interviews for 4-6 month winter and ski jobs are taking place between now and August with positions going fast, so get your skates on.
