Research practice and internships

Completing a research, practical or professional internship is an integral and compulsory part of the MA programme African Studies and is recommended for all students with a focus on Africa.

Practical training can either be research-based, independent field work, archival research or working practicals. The Centre for African Studies offers field trips to Africa on a regular basis. Students who wish to complete their internship with a company, governmental organisation or NGO are expected to organise their internships themselves. However, the Centre can assist students in planning and undertaking these internships.

The internship reports of our students can be accessed at the executive office of the ZASB. Please indicate the reference number.
