Internship in New Zealand

New Zealand is one of the top countries in the world to live and work in and makes a great destination for an internship too. Here you will find information on the internship programs we coordinate in New Zealand.

Information on NZ Internships

With its solid economy and good quality of life, New Zealand has everything to offer to you if you enjoy living in a small but friendly country famous for its beautiful lakes, rivers, and snow-capped mountains.

Interning with a company in New Zealand will help you get work experience and build skills that make you more attractive to your future employers. We have a good number of host companies, small and large, in New Zealand. Based in different cities in the North and the South Islands, our host companies operate in various industries. Your NZ internship will be relevant to your degree.


New Zealand Internships That Complement Your Degree

Your internship in New Zealand will relate to your degree. Business, engineering and technology are popular internship industries. Having said that, CareerDC organises internship programs in more than 25 internship industries.


Your New Zealand internship will be tailored for you. When you enrol in the internship program, CareerDC’s internship consultants will organise an internship placement for you with a suitable host company in your preferred location in New Zealand. We’ll ensure your work experience placement meets your internship needs and your degree’s requirements.

Cities Popular With NZ Interns

Auckland and Wellington in the North Island and Christchurch in the South Island are the top three cities for NZ interns. It’s unsurprising as they are the three largest cities in the country.

  • Auckland
  • Christchurch
  • Dunedin
  • Hamilton
  • Queenstown
  • Wellington

Whether you are interested in doing an internship in any of the cities listed above, or another destination in New Zealand, get in touch with the CareerDC team to discuss a customised internship program.

New Zealand Internships: What It’s About

The internships coordinated by CareerDC are work experience placements. They are usually 12 weeks long, although the duration of the internship can be customised for your particular needs.

The internship gives you, as the intern, hands-on exposure to the industry relevant to your degree. The internship would typically offer you the first opportunity to gain professional experience in a real work environment.

The internship placements can be coordinated for both domestic and international students in New Zealand. They can be done in person, on-site, or as a remote internship.

To get inspired and to find out how other students have benefited from our internship porgrams in the past, have a look at our previous interns’ testimonials.

Internship in New Zealand for International Students

  • The internship programs facilitated by CareerDC are for both local and international students in New Zealand.

  • Securing an internship opportunity can be more difficult for international students as they would not have the same support network as domestic students.

  • That’s where CareerDC can help. We assist international students in getting internships with host companies in New Zealand.

  • If you are an international student outside of New Zealand, contact our team to find out if an internship program can be organised for you.
