Known as “the city of sails,” Auckland is the most populous city of New Zealand and offers interns a wide variety of placement industries. Interns will get a flavor of this vibrant city while building their professional development through project-based internship projects.
Interns will work remotely with a team based in Auckland and will have frequent engagement with their supervisor and working teams. Interns will also interact frequently with our internship provider, Global Academic Ventures.
