International Internship Programme
Welcome to the Aga Khan University's International Internship Programme
The UPO’s International Internship Programme are a group of impact-driven programmes focused on equitable knowledge, resource, and experiential exchange between students, faculty, and staff at both AKU and its international partner institutions. The programmes encourage cross-cultural collaboration and have produced fruitful exchanges for all participants in the past and present.
Since 2008 the programme has offered unique and meaningful internship opportunities in 8 countries within East Africa, Central, and South Asia. These students have been placed at 7 agencies of the Aga Khan Development Network namely – Aga Khan University (AKU), Aga Khan Education Services (AKES), University of Central Asia (UCA), Aga Khan Foundation (AKF), Diamond Trust Bank (DTB), Serena, Industrial Promotion Services (IPS).
The programmes aim to provide a critical learning opportunity that goes beyond simple work experience and instead focuses on thinking outside of the box, developing strong leadership skills, being critically reflexive, and learning new ways of doing things in new environments.
