Why do an internship or volunteering project abroad?

The number one reason is to have fun!

Students also tend to visit the beautiful beaches that surround Cape Town and Stellenbosch. Furthermore, nightlife in Cape Town and Stellenbosch is absolutely amazing. Cape Town and Stellenbosch is filled with various pubs and clubs where students often hangout just to unwind, dance the night away or simply just to enjoy the music.
