"USIT make the whole thing easy and doable in-between college.

It can be difficult trying to get all the paperwork before you go, but USIT take all the hassle out and keep things smooth. It'll be the best summer of your life for sure!"Áine

"My J1 experience was by far the best thing I have ever done!

The places we explored, the people we met and the activities that we completed were nothing compared to home. I would 100% recommend a visa with USIT, everything was explained clearly and easily."Ciada D

"My J1 experience was better than I ever expected.

It was by far the best summer I have ever had and was such an incredible opportunity. I got to live and work in New York for 3 months. I made friends with my American roommates and worked in Times Square."Doireann M
