About Educational Programmes Abroad

Educational Programmes Abroad (EPA) was incorporated in 1972 to assist students in finding academic internships overseas. EPA is committed to equipping future workers with the global experience they need in the 21st century. The company itself is relatively small, with only 12 full-time employees, and has been placing American students all around Europe since 1975.

EPA’s internship program is designed to provide work experience in a realistically challenging environment, while giving students an international perspective. Interns get the opportunity to become intimately involved in an organization or system related to their field of academic study or career interest. In the fall and spring semester programs, students take two classes along with their internships.


Open to full-time college juniors and seniors with at least a 3.0 GPA. Non-U.S. citizens are eligible.
