Best internship ever

Doing an internship in South Africa with Magister was amazing. Nicky and his team are very nice, welcoming and friendly, I didn't feel lonely once. They organize events quiet often so I met a lot of new people that I consider now as friends. They also help you a lot with practical matters such as sim cards, transfer from the airport and how things work in Cape Town.
It was the best experience of all my life so don't hesitate, choose Cape Town and Magister if you want to live a truly unique experience !

Yes, I recommend this program
