Thursday, February 08, 2018

Update: 6:08PM A PARTNERSHIP recently formed between the University of the South Pacific and the International Association of Students in Economic and Commercial Sciences (AIESEC), will push for youth internships and exchange programs for regional students at the university.

A Memorandum of Understanding was signed between the two parties that aims to ensure the availability of internship opportunities for USP students, enabling them to explore the world and enhance their leadership capacity through the exchange and membership programs.
