The Internship allows students to work with a variety of organisations and NGOs concerned with International Affairs. The attachment to these will in some cases include working with them at their offices, but the majority will be project-based. Included will be some 'virtual' internships and attachment with organisations in Europe, Asia and the Americas (including Human Rights bodies, international think-tanks, international affairs organisations, NGOs in the humanitarian area). These will be on the basis of students finalising a project with the organisations concerned, and then maintaining contact via Skype and e-mail. A local supervisor will be in place as a contact point and adviser on the project. In addition to the project itself, there will also be some face-to-face seminars on cognate areas of international affairs, report-writing and how to conduct negotiations in the international sphere. To be eligible for the course, students must be enrolled in the Bachelor of International Relations or have very strong results in courses dealing with international affairs. A minimum GPA of 5.0 will be required.
