Default Are there internship opportunities for African students abroad?

I would like to know whether companies abroad hire interns from African countries.

If they do,please what are the requirements and the process?

Thanks!

No. That is the only way one can answer your incredibly vague & unclear question.

Companies hire international students all the time... but they're attending a university in the country the internship is in.

For example... Kenyan student attending a university in the US east coast, say Boston College, could get an internship for a company in the US midwest, say Indianapolis.

I seriously doubt you'd find a situation where a company hires a Kenyan student attending the university in Narobi for an internship in, say, Chicago.

I also don't think this has anything to do with being from Africa, explicitly. I would imagine the same thing holds when considering a Chinese student attending a university in Shanghai or whatever. I'm not a hiring authority... just applying a little common sense to this.

Seriously?

Assuming a 2nd year college student in Africa who's now preparing for Exam P wants to apply for a summer internship overseas.

The question is:"Are there actuarial jobs for college students overseas specifically internship opportunities?"
