Internship Opportunities
Posted 3 years ago

The purpose of the AUC Internship is to provide graduate students with a chance to gain exposure to the work of the AUC in the hopes that some will be interested in returning to the AUC for a career after completing their studies. It is somewhat designed to complement development-oriented studies with practical experience in various aspects of multilateral technical cooperation.

The main objectives of the OAU were, inter alia, to rid  the continent of the remaining vestiges of colonization and apartheid; to  promote unity and solidarity among African States; to coordinate and intensify  cooperation for development; to safeguard the sovereignty and territorial  integrity of Member States and to promote international cooperation within the  framework of the United Nations.
