What can I expect at Summer School?

When you arrive on the Monday of your Summer School, you will be assigned to a person who works within the specific field in which you’re interested.

If you have specified in your registration form that you would like to be exposed to more than one field, we’ll try our best to organise your week so that you get to be exposed to all of those fields.

During the week, you will also attend various Summer School Sessions. These are group discussions with leaders within our team accountable for specific outcomes.

How can I apply for an internship?

Summer School is not an internship – it is a one-week “work experience” type of programme where you gain light exposure to your intended career.

If you would like to apply for an internship, send your CV and motivation to headstart@immedia.co.za before June of the year in which you graduate (before your very last academic semester).
