University Partners | Africa Internship Academy

University Partners

In order to make our programs more accessible to students, Africa Internship Academy strives to build relationships with Senior High Schools and universities across Africa. Higher Educational Institutions which partner with our program can take advantage of our expertise and local knowledge.
We have long standing relationships with Business Communities and facilitators (both local and international) thus Internship needs as part of Higher Education academic requirements can be smoothly run by AIA.

Academic Credit

Many universities in Africa require that students complete an Internship module (Work Integrated Learning) as part of their degree course in order to graduate. We are expertly familiar with Work Integrated Learning techniques. We assist students who go through Africa Internship Academy to meet and exceed these requirements and have an additional edge over their peers.
