The Application Process
Students are required to apply online and include all relevant details about their history, work experience, career aspirations, and internship needs.

We then reach out to our global partners in order to find a perfect match for you after which we schedule you for an interview with your prospective supervisor, who will provide more information about the role, expectations, and the organization. Successful interns are then required to complete their payment, attend the onboarding session and then embark on a transformative and enriching experience.
