The road to corporate world doesn’t always have to begin at a University level, earlier students get exposed to the world of Business, better are the chances for them to be a successful business leader.

The number of days and elements of the program can be customised to suit academic requirements and the program is tailor made for a student’s learning and development in a global work environment.

The applicants take up practical volunteering work with international NGO’s in Mauritius which contributes towards United Nations Sustainable Development goals to develop a broader perspective towards various sections of the society. The key learning for a future leader is to understand the societal impact that one can co-create and the contribution one can make, it also helps develop a sense of Humanity & Empathy which plays a vital role in a success of a student.
We at PAX believe that “you grow and become a better person when you travel to learn abroad” and going to a whole new country’s which hosts internationals as much as its country population every year, it’s only fair that a student’s gets to see Mauritius & Singapore - all its Beauty and Glory.

When is the application deadline?
An ideal applicant must apply 3 months prior to when you actually want to go. The more time our team have in our hands, the better the organisations we will be able to confirm you with for your learning and development in your interest. We do have limited seats and more applicants, so the sooner you apply, the better your odds.
Do I need to know the local language?
No, you do not need to know the local language! We always find organizations that are comfortable with conversing in a global language (English in particular) so that it’s easier for the intern as well as the organization to discuss, mentor and implement the project ideas with your assigned roles and responsibilities.
What organizations do you partner with?
We keep in mind that this should be a learning experience for the intern. So, we always find organizations which can mentor our interns in the societal and corporate elements and provide an enriching experience. From big corporations to start-ups, NGOs contributing to United Nations Sustainable Development Goals whichever supports your learning aspirations better is available from our end!
What type of accommodations will be offered?
We always provide students with fully furnished places to stay so that it’s easier for them to be comfortably adapt into. Our policy is to not keep more than 2 interns in one room, if you would like to take a single occupancy room, you need to inform us during the screening call. From the air conditioner to kitchen essentials you’ll need for all your meals in a day, we take care of everything! We place students in Flic En Flac which is the most beautiful as well as visited beach in Mauritius along and accommodation is generally 3-10 minutes walking distance from white sand beach. In Singapore we keep our students at Paya Lebar from where super markets are 300-400 metres distance and bus stops and metro is in the radium of 700 metres.
Are these internships paid?
No, we do not provide paid internships upto 3 months or shoter duration. For more than 3 months or longer duration we do offer in many cases paid internship. The reason being that is twofold:
One, we provide learning experiences, we want you to go to companies that are willing to help you out and mentor you! Secondly, our objective is deliver this experience to maximum students and best support them with learning in their field of interest and keeping any stipend in place limits our team to achieve our vision for the students. However, we do have students that get stipends at the end of their internship period if the company really likes their work! If a company offers you any stipend or a gift you should humbly accept but should not opt for a pre-mindset of getting a stipend/gift by the end of internship.
Work-based learning is regarded as an educational opportunity, and more enriching & value driven experiences as international internships, the same is applied for Mauritius and Singapore work ecosystem by our team for you.
Nevertheless, in cases, some interns can and do receive remuneration while other students do receive in-kind rewards and recognitions from their respective organizations of internships depending upon their performance, etc.
However, our team does not make payment of stipend a priority when finalizing internship in the domain of student's element of interest and we therefore recommend that you assume the internships of students will be unpaid for 3 months or shorter duration.
Is there a minimum age to attend corporate internships?
Yes, you need to be at least 14+ years old or a university student.
I would like to book my own flights is there a provision to customise the package?
We can customise each and element we provide in our internship, in-case you would like to book your own flights, or book your own accommodation and manage your own meals, we would readily support you in doing that. In-case you want to customise/make any changes you may let our team know in the beginning during the screening call so that we could take a special note of the same.
