Program Overview

Program Description:

Recently named as the most entrepreneurial city in South Africa, Cape Town is the perfect place for your summer internship abroad. With IES Internships, you are guaranteed an unpaid, 8-week internship placement of up to 40 hours per week in a business or organization that suits your career goals. Build a global network of professional contacts and gain real-world experience all while exploring everything that Cape Town has to offer.

While in Cape Town, you’ll live other IES Abroad interns in shared apartments or houses, well-located in central Cape Town. You’ll also enroll in our required 3- or 6-credit internship seminar where you’ll discuss cultural issues in the workplace. On the weekends, join IES Abroad-organized field trips that take you beyond the city to discover the culture and traditions of South Africa. Travel along the south-eastern coast line, explore the Cango Cave system, and visit an ostrich farm. All of this – and more – awaits you in Cape Town.

Founded in 1950, IES Abroad is a global, not-for-profit study abroad organization with 125+ academic programs in Africa, Asia Pacific, Europe, and Latin America. To learn more about what we offer visit our website.

But there’s more to Cape Town than its beauty—its dynamic society is ever-changing and growing, and you can witness it first-hand. Immerse yourself in the African culture and explore one of the most diverse environments in the world.
