Internship & Career Advice

Scholars will be assisted in finding internships they can complete during the academic break at the end of the year. Most scholars will do their internship after their second year of study.

The internship component of The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program at Makerere University will enable the Scholars to forge links with businesses and NGOs in their home country or in another Sub-Saharan country.

The Makerere University Careers Service will help ensure students are equipped with skills for the working world – including CV writing skills, job search and interview skills, and professional development skills. Scholars will also be supported to obtain jobs and workplace experience through opportunities within colleges at Makerere University.
