Internship as a part of our curriculum in general need not be limited to exploring learning opportunities in our home grounds. The horizon of internship can go beyond our own campuses and universities. In this context, we have reached out to New York University Abu Dhabi (NYUAD) for Summer Internship Program at King’s College.
The Summer Internship has been designed as a part of our international collaborations and is directed towards developing diversity in our educational system and building our capabilities from the knowledge and experience of our interns. For this summer, we have three students from NYUAD with diverse backgrounds, education and interests.
During their six to eight weeks internship at King’s College, our interns will work closely with social enterprises and organizations based on their area of interest and academic specialization. For this summer, sustainable waste management, ageing population and microfinances are the focus areas identified by the interns. The interns will study working mechanisms of social enterprises working to address sustainable waste management, ageing population and financial inclusion in Nepal and impact these enterprises have been able to create in communities across Nepal. Their study and writings will be a valuable addition to our curriculum. Furthermore, the organizations will be able to gain a different perspective on their actions, impact created and room for growth and advancement.
