Vacation Work (non-bursar)

Please Note:  Sasol occasionally provides a limited number of opportunities to obtain practical work experience (vacation work), related to their field of study, to non-Sasol bursary students. These opportunities will be availed to students in most of the regular/general engineering study disciplines who can provide proof that the vacation work is required by the particular University for graduation purposes.

Applicants must be South African citizens and available/willing to complete vacation work from 05 to 23 December 2022 as well as 02 to 27 January (both periods included).

Vacation work is not equivalent to so-called “experiential training” required for completion of a diploma or in some cases the previously B.Tech. degrees.  These opportunities are for so-called vacation work and not for P1 and P2 experiential training.

Please complete the on-line application before 23:55 on 14 October 2022. NB. No late applications or applications via a different route will be considered. (Proof that vacation work is required by the University for Graduation purposes must be attached to the application.)

Students who, in terms of their University curriculum, must do vacation work in order to comply with the requirements for graduation purposes.  

Only current 2nd, 3rd and 4th students, studying towards a B. Engineering / B.Sc. Engineering degree a standard South African University (not a University of Technology) in the following study disciplines may apply for vacation work:

  • Chemical
  • Civil
