All students studying on the Trinity-in-Cape Town program are required to complete an integrated and experiential internship, 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 receive advice and support from the Trinity Cape Town Academic Director, as well as the internship supervisor at the organization who will oversee your progress.
