In the spirit of supporting student mobility between the Nordic and Southern African regions, SANORD Central Office (SCO), located at the University of Western Cape in Cape Town, South Africa, offers internship opportunities to students from Nordic institutions. Interns are an important part of everyday functioning of the office. They are particularly responsible for the SCO’s communication channels. In the future SANORD hopes to be able to facilitate internship exchanges between its member institutions as well. Plans for such arrangements are underway.
The SANORD Central Office internships were started in 2013. There are two internships available for one calendar year, each usually a duration of 4-6 months. The interns assist the SCO in the daily administrative tasks, in organizing events, and the SCO communication channels (web portal, newsletter, social media channels). Depending on their area of study and individual skills and interests, the interns may also carry out other projects aimed at improving the SCO’s operations as well as SANORD as a whole.
