Thirteen students of the Cameroon-based Pan African University Institute for Governance, Humanities and Social Sciences (PAUGHSS), have arrived at the African Union Commission Headquarters in Addis Ababa, on a month-long internship.The cohort, comprising six students enrolled on the Master in Conference Interpreting program and seven on the Master in Translation course, is the pioneer batch of student interpreters and translators of the PAU Masters in Conference Interpreting and Translation.

As a partial fulfillment of the requirements for graduation, the students are supposed to complete an internship that enables them to gain career-related work experience. The African Union Commission has a Directorate of Conference Management and Publicationswhere the students will receive practical training in translation, conference and public service interpreting.

The placement is important in fulfilling an important requirement of the students’ academic program, and in encouraging both current and future students to appreciate the relevance and prospects of enrolling into the Pan African University.
