Our interns learn so much at their internship sites as well as throughout their travels in the beautiful countries of New Zealand and Australia!
Scroll over the pictures below and find out what a few of them have to say below.
"With coming to New Zealand, I was able to learn a lot about diversity. The kiwi culture and their wonderful hospitality was amazing! I came because New Zealand is culturally diverse and I was quite impressed with how the education system functions here." - Dakshin from India, completed his School Management Internship in Auckland, New Zealand
"The experience has been great. My workplace has excellent workplace culture. I was really lucky to be working with them while the put on their annual conference which was really a world class event. I've learnt a lot about what goes on behind the scenes of not-for-profits. How important marketing & communications are to an organisation that needs to maintain an irregular income that comes through corporate sponsorship buy in. - Molly from Australia, completed her Social Enterprise/Marketing & Communications Internship in Wellington, New Zealand
"In general the whole experience is definitely something I will look back to for the rest of my life. In the beginning it was quite hard for me to get used to the idea of being away from everyone for such a big distance. It was such an amazing experience, where I've learned so many things. I never thought I would go to the other side of the world and live there for five months. It is funny how your life can change when you decide to get out of your comfort zone." - Kikiann from The Netherlands, completed her Forensic Science Internship in Canberra, Australia
"It has been an overall amazing experience being at my placement. Being a recent uni grad it was amazing being able to have this opportunity to be able to put my knowledge into work and get a feel for what I hope to be doing in the future. Being here has given me the time and resources necessary to be able to complete my applications to graduate school and build up my resume." - Samantha from the USA, completed her Psychology Internship in Sydney, Australia
"A piece of advice I have for future interns is to buy/hire a camper-van or car, make sure you got enough travel time, don't be afraid about your English if your not a native speaker and make sure you will enjoy your time!" -Tim from The Netherlands, completed his Agriculture Internship in Hamilton, New Zealand
"I was able to work on a project which an intern before me started. I can have my own ideas incorporated and I can train my designing skills with a lot of resources in the company. My favorite parts of my internship were to learn many new things about New Zealand work life and to improve my skills in different sections of my subject of study." - Tobias from Germany, completed his Engineering Internship in Christchurch, New Zealand
"I think the most important thing I’ve learnt really with being in a different country is having to be really independent for yourself. Also with learning about the culture and understanding different things while being here in Sydney!" - Elliot Smith from the UK, completed his Business Studies Internship in Sydney, Australia
"At my internship, I was under the role as a research student. My main responsibility was to conduct a project that involves investigating the possibility of a stem cell population within port-wine stains, which are type of congenital birthmark. My favorite part of my internship was how much I was able to learn!" - Jazmean from the USA, completed her Biomedical Engineering Internship in Wellington, New Zealand
