Volunteer lecturing

We arrange and manage teaching assignments at our established partner institutes of higher education in Namibia, South Africa and Zambia. These generally last a minimum of two to three weeks plus travel days and are carefully targeted to making a significant and visible contribution to mid- and long-term development in Southern Africa.

If you are interested in volunteer lecturing, please contact us by E-Mail or Phone +41 41 710 99 16.


Host families

To ensure that our interns feel at home during their stay in Switzerland, we are looking for host families in suburban Aarau, Bern, Fribourg and Zurich. The internships last between two and three months and usually take place between February and October.

Are you interested in becoming a B360 host family? Please see our flyer for more information or contact us by Email or phone No. +41 41 710 99 16.


Pro Bono

In order to operate professionally and effectively we depend on professionals and partners willing to volunteer services, e.g. in the areas of accounting, communication, film or photo. Would you like to support us?

If you are interested, please contact us by E-Mail or Phone +41 41 710 99 16.



A key part of the 360° approach is the B360 internship program for Southern African students in European companies. We set up internships for the top students from our partner universities lasting three months. These offer a stimulating learning opportunity for both the interns and their host colleagues.

If you are interested in becoming an internship partner company, please contact us by E-Mail or Phone +41 41 710 99 16.



Are you a student at one of our partner universities (Namibia University of Science and Technology, University of Zambia, Tertiary School in Business Administration South Africa) interested in applying for an internship? Please keep an eye on the notice board, intranet or ask the international relations officer in your faculty about internship opportunities.



B360 has a pool of experts in the fields of Business Management, Civil Engineering, Communication, Economics, E-Learning, Finance and Accounting, Food Safety, Human Resources, Journalism, Marketing, Mechanical Engineering, Media Technology, Logistics, Occupational Health and Safety, Risk Management, SME Development. Additional disciplines are continually being added to meet specific local requirements.

These professionals, with proven experience in lecturing and training at an international level, share their subject-matter and business-based knowledge and expertise with students, lecturers and school management at our partner universities in Southern Africa.

Tailor-made assignments can take the form of lectures and case studies within the normal teaching syllabus, workshops, seminars, practical training and one-on-one coaching sessions.

The students gain immediate advantages from the knowledge of the B360 experts and the interaction with them. Co-teaching and collaboration between the experts and faculties then bring extra sustainability thanks to durable knowledge transfer and valuable exchange of experience, integrating inputs from the ‘real world’.
