University of the Western CapeFall 2 2017 + Service-Learning (Jul 27, 2017 to Dec 14, 2017)
Catalog Code: ICPEF3217
This program is designed for students that are interested in participating in a service-learning program in addition to their academic semester.
As an ISA student, you can combine courses offered in different faculties and departments as scheduling allows. UWC Faculties include: Arts, Community and Health Sciences, Economic and Management Sciences, Education, Law, and Natural Sciences. The University also houses the UWC-Robben Island Mayibuye Archives, which includes a collection of artifacts, historical documents, photographs, artworks, and audio-visual materials of the apartheid era in South Africa.
In addition to their academic courses, students will have the opportunity to spend 5-10 hours per week at a host organization, gaining valuable international experience. Placements are arranged prior to arrival in the host country and language requirements vary. Visit the ISA Service-Learning website for more information on placement opportunities.
Service-Learning placements are coordinated by ISA and have no affiliation with the university. Students will develop a Portfolio throughout the program, documenting their projects, hours, and program activities. Students can earn 1-6 credits based on the number of contact hours accrued at the host organization and successful completion of the Portfolio. Visit the Academic Credit page of the ISA Service-Learning website for more information.
Semester + Semester Programs Available: Students may participate in the Spring + Fall OR the Fall + Spring sessions of this program by selecting their two semesters of interest when submitting the initial ISA online application. For more information about this option, please contact your Cape Town Site Specialist.
