We derive invariance principles for processes associated with symmetric statistics of arbitrary order. Using a Poisson sample size, such processes can be viewed as functionals of a Poisson Point Process. Properly normalized, these functionals converge in distribution to functionals of a Gaussian random measure associated with the distribution of the observations. We thus obtain a natural description of the limiting process in terms of multiple Wiener integrals. The results are used to derive asymptotic expansions of processes arising from arbitrary square integrable $U$-statistics.
