Travel opens up a whole world of opportunities for study and work abroad.
The J-1 Summer Work and Travel Programme is one of these opportunities which allow full-time third level students to enter the US on a J-1 Exchange Visitor Visa. This programme allows you to travel to the USA and work there legally for up to four months starting from the dates printed on your Certificate of Eligibility (form DS-2019) and ending no later than 15th September 2016. After your Certificate of Eligibility (DS-2019) expires you may stay in the US but only as a tourist for a maximum of 30 days.
All students travelling on the J1 programme MUST have an approved seasonal job before they can take part on the programme
