Volunteering in Obs

The colourful district Observatory is especially for students or interns of interest, because it offers in every department some places to gain some experience. Apart from the fact that you will get to know many new people and build some relationships for lifetime, you get the possibility to familiarise with a different culture and improve your language skills. For example, med students can find their calling in using their theoretical knowledge in practice at the Groote Schuur Hospital. All students, which want to do their internship abroad, are looking for a job and an accommodation in Observatory, because it is the typical student district in Cape Town. Furthermore students that are attending the UCT will prefer Obs because, on the one hand, they want to stay in the neighbourhood of the university. And on the other hand, they can feel there the unique vibe and enjoy an amazing nightlife.
