RU Science Internship Programme

Date Released: Fri, 7 April 2017 15:29 +0200

This week we had 30 school learners from 5 different Grahamstown schools joined the Science & Pharmacy Faculties for their first week of the RU Science Internship Programme. The learners were selected through a selection process from the application forms they sent in and were placed across the Science and Pharmacy Faculty as Interns working in the various Departments and/or Research Groups.  All the learners arrived on Monday for an orientation day where they met each other and then went off to their various host departments. The same learners will return for two more weeks later on in the year (July and October) to get more exposure to the fields that they have selected. The point of this programme is to expose learners to different disciplines in Science, it is a learning experience for them where they are encouraged to make the most of the time with the staff and post-graduate students at Rhodes University. Thank-you to all the Departments who participate in this wonderful programme!
