Interns will be placed in a range of organisations across Wellington, a capital city renowned for its arts and culture. These organisations will provide you with rich insights into the diverse character of the Wellington community. We will match your skills and what you are capable of providing with the types of support needed by our host organisations. Your work will benefit the host and the communities they serve, as well as providing you with achievements that will bolster your resume or graduate school application when you return home.
All of the interns will stay at a backpacker-style hostel in Wellington. This will allow you to stay together over the four weeks, even though you will be out at separate sites. You will also have access to all of the facilities and support services available at Massey's Wellington campus.
Massey University has strong relationships with many and varied internship host organisations. We will review your Communication and Marketing Internship Placement Form to ensure there is a good match between the kind of organisation where you will want to intern and the hosts that can offer an insightful and productive opportunity for you.
