New Zealand is a country unlike any other. With warm, peaceful islands in the north, majestic, rugged mountains in the south and any number of variations in between, it is truly a diverse country. The nation is comprised of two main islands, the North Island and the South Island, as well as several smaller islands, all of which are home to singular wildlife, varied cultures and friendly people. The striking landscapes that have inspired filmmakers have also captured the imaginations of tourist, backpackers, adventure seekers and students. Interning in New Zealand offers you opportunities to explore beautiful landscapes, enjoy the friendly hospitality of the New Zealanders, or “Kiwis,” and experience a unique country and culture.
Why Intern in New Zealand?
New Zealand offers an emerging global market, a growing global interest, state-of-the-art research, amazing environmental industry, and insight into Pacific and Maori culture. Throughout the North and South Island, New Zealand has many opportunities in Agriculture, Animal, and Veterinary Science; Arts and Humanities; Business and Marketing; Environmental Studies, Hospitality and Tourism; and Sports Management and Exercise Science. While interns in almost any field can intern in New Zealand, those with an interest in the above industries are especially encouraged to consider New Zealand. Engineering placements in New Zealand are highly competitive. Prospective engineering participants are encouraged to be open to other locations.
Interns are placed throughout New Zealand; in large cities, suburbs, and in smaller towns on both islands to give you the chance to discover new adventures and challenges in one of the world’s most unique countries. Participants should be open to living and working in the location where the most suitable placement is found in order for the participant to gain the best career-building experience available and complete their personal and professional goals during their internship abroad.
