A critical objective of the University of Johannesburg (UJ) is to educate and equip our students with work experience, as well as provide them with a recognised qualification. Graduate students are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity to apply for graduate internships from various companies in order to acquire working skills that will prepare them for lifelong work opportunities.

UJ therefore encourages its students to apply for available graduate internships for skills development.
