Internship

All students studying on the Trinity-in-Cape Town program are required to complete an integrated and experiential internship and an internship seminar, which will be graded and will be the equivalent to 1.0 academic credit.

An internship in an international setting can be very rewarding but demands patience, flexibility and sensitivity. The purpose of the Cape Town internships are to expose students to different neighborhoods and communities in and around Cape Town,  enabling students to investigate a particular interest or career option.  

The emphasis is on field experience, which is complemented by a written paper at the end of the semester, as well as a supervisor’s assessment of the student’s performance.  During the internship process, the student will take part in an internship seminar with the Trinity in Cape Town Academic Director and will be supported by their internship supervisor at the organization.
