Explore New Zealand this summer

Group at top.jpg

Traverse the country and work alongside Kiwis

Travel through some of the planet's most spectacular scenery, immerse yourself in Kiwi culture, and see parts of New Zealand open only to locals, all while earning university credit over your summer break.  The National Expedition and Internship will take you across the North and South Islands and place you in an internship where you’ll work on real-world problems relevant to your degree.

Our six-week study abroad program is worth 6-8 U.S. semester credits, 15 ECTS, or 30 CATS. The key components of this program, which is unlike any other in New Zealand, are a two-week national expedition starting in May or June followed by a four-week internship.

Overseas experience can shape your career

Even if you never plan on living outside your home country, having international experience can make an impressive difference in your resume or graduate school application. Businesses and companies look for applicants with a global mindset to engage with their culturally diverse employees and overseas clients. This foreign internship will set you apart from the masses as you work to advance your career.

Multiple options for a range of majors
