Trip itinerary

The beauty of this trip is that your weekdays will be filled with interning, leaving you evenings and weekends to explore however you please! As a rough idea, here’s what you can expect:

Week 1

Touch down in New Zealand and get ready to start your internship adventure! Choose from a private transfer or public transport to take you to your first night of accommodation. Settle in, make some friends and immerse yourself in the amazing scenery and rich culture your new home has on offer. 

If you haven't already completed your orientation online, head over to your new office and attend the company’s orientation. Meet your new team, get a grand tour of the office and learn a bit more about the company you’ll be interning at and what a typical day will look like.

Now that you’ve had a teaser into your internship and new workspace, you’ll be buzzing to get started! Head in for your first day and ease into your role as an intern abroad. Gain real-world experience in a professional environment and pick up important skills, knowledge and connections along the way.
