Graduate Internship

Graduate unemployment was identified under the SHESRA project as an emerging security concern in Africa that needed immediate redress. One of the key recommendations from the project was to facilitate graduate employability through internships.

With financial support from the Swedish International Development Agency (Sida) the AAU launched its Graduate Internship Programme in 2014. The internship is between twelve (12) and twenty four (24) weeks, with preference for post-graduate students who have no practical work experience. The AAU Graduate Internship Programme, currently entering its third year, aims to build the employable skills of beneficiary students before they graduate from their institutions. It is opened to all fields of study in higher education but the applicants should be students from AAU member institutions.

A General Report on the Internship Programme is available.

End of Intership Reports have also been received from the students for publication.
