Our internships in South Africa are particularly suitable for students and graduates, who would like to collect international experience in their field of study.

Most organisations expect a minimum duration of 8 to 12 weeks. Selected projects allow shorter internships of 4 to 6 weeks. Most of our partners offer flexible starting dates as tailor-made designs of our internships are important to us. In some of our school and education projects you need to consider the South African schol holidays, in particular the long summer holidays over Christmas. You can apply any time for an internship in South Africa. If yu would like to apply for a scholarship for your internship you should apply early so you do not miss application deadlines to apply for financial support.
