Applicants will receive instructions for completing an on-line registration with EUSA after acceptance by KU where you will upload your resume and answer questions pertaining to your areas of interest for your internship. A sample resume provided by EUSA can be found here. KU Career Services is also an excellent resource for assistance with creating a resume.
Applicants will participate in an on-campus informal placement meeting with a member of the EUSA Dublin Placement Team, in March. EUSA will speak with you about your goals, expectations, preferences, priorities, experience, and any credit requirements. They will then use this information to find a suitable placement for you.
A background check will be required for students seeking internships in the healthcare field and/or working with vulnerable populations. If you fall into this category, please see the Background Check Instructions Required Reading in your JayhawksAbroad account.

Haley N Ford, Summer 2015 Participant
Ireland is an insanely beautiful country and the people are incredibly nice.
Mitchell Joseph Reinig, Summer 2017 Participant
The most rewarding aspect, in my opinion, was the day to day interaction with people from Ireland and from other schools around the United States. It made it very easy to gain new perspectives on the world and to experience life in a way very different than what I was used to.
Ronnie Gayle Blackburn, Summer 2012 Participant
I learned that I really do have the capability to make big things happen for myself, if I just take the first step.
