Program Overview

Join the growing digital workforce in Cape Town, where both locals and expats are flocking to meet the growing demand for web development and IT professionals. South Africa is certainly riding the digital wave and in some sense is both ahead of and just behind the web development and IT curve, providing plenty of opportunities for students and recent graduates to contribute to a variety of projects. Depending on your skills and interests, you might find yourself working within devoted technology companies or in a web development or IT capacity within a devoted department of a larger corporation. Duties may include website development and design, software development, database management, tech support, network infrastructure, and so much more. Head to Cape Town, South Africa for an insightful exchange of skills with a customized web or IT internship through World Internships!

About Your Accomodation

Apartment

An apartment shared with other interns in the city means you’ll be shopping for and preparing your own meals, and sharing cleaning duties and communal living spaces. World Internships can arrange safe and secure apartment housing for you within a reasonable commute time to your internship site.

Independent Housing

Independent housing allows you to opt out of our arranged accommodation options (and the associated fees) and find your own. This option works best when you have friends or family members living in your destination, or a strong housing lead that you feel comfortable pursuing.
