You will be based in Hawke’s Bay for your four-week internship. It is a perfect location for this type of program. Hawke's Bay is one of New Zealand's top agricultural, food, and wine regions. It has a significant focus on environmental issues and offers many unique opportunities for visitors to the country.
The types of on-the-ground practical experiences you gain during your internship will provide you with the international exposure and mindset valued by employers and graduate schools. Working side by side with subject matter experts in another country will enhance your knowledge and insights in a way that an internship in your own country cannot.
You and the other interns will live and cook meals together in a backpackers-style hostel located in Napier. The youth hostel provides you with easy access to downtown and the beach. Transportation to and from your internship site is included in the program fee.
Our team will use the information you provide on your Agriculture and Environment Internship Placement Form to match your skills and experiences to the range of opportunities available within Hawke's Bay. Massey has ties to a large variety of wildlife, agricultural, and environmental organisations within the region.
