The internship will take place within the network of NCDC institutions. Application is free of charge and there is no tuition attached. Intake is done in three cohorts annually, but the NCDC accepts application round the year. Each cohort will be engaged for a maximum of 8 weeks.

There are limited spaces, therefore candidates are advised to apply early. The NCDC internship is purely a learning exercise and does not translate into a job offer.
