Program Information:

Intern in New Zealand lets you gain practical internship experience while immersing yourself in the Kiwis’ friendly workplace and lively, modern Pacifica culture. During your time abroad, you will work in New Zealand with an individual, organization, or company and be exposed to a harmonious blend of people from diverse backgrounds, cultures, and skill sets.

Here are some things to expect while on this unique program:
  • A custom internship in New Zealand  – We know you’re not traveling all the way to New Zealand to pour coffee and sharpen pencils. So don’t worry. Our internships are customized, meaning we take into account your career aspirations, hobbies, interests, and skills.
  • The most spectacular, diverse landscape on the planet – A 3-hour drive will take you to pristine beaches or deciduous rain forests or mountain glaciers—just choose a direction!  There’s a reason why New Zealand’s landscapes are featured in movies such as Lord of the Rings.
  • Living in one of the world’s adventure capitals – Adventure and adrenaline-pumping sports were practically invented in New Zealand. You can bungee jump with the world’s original bungee company, tandem skydive over the ocean, or learn to surf, ski, or whitewater kayak.
