Agriculture and Environment Expedition & Internship
Massey University - Palmerston NorthSummer 1 2017 (May 27, 2017 to Jul 8, 2017)
Catalog Code: IPNU1317
Massey University offers a summer program exclusively to study abroad students. This program combines an ecologically-focused two-week tour of the North and South Islands with a four-week internship in agriculture, agribusiness, environmental science, and wildlife management.
The National Expedition travels around the North and South Islands, giving students the chance to experience parts of New Zealand they may never have seen otherwise. Spend two weeks discovering the untouched natural beauty of New Zealand's glaciers, volcanoes, rain forests, rivers, lakes, mountains, and beaches, all while meeting other study abroad students as well as locals.
For the environmental sciences internship, head to Napier, a city on the eastern side of the North Island, and spend a month interning with government agencies, non-profit groups, wildlife sanctuaries, wineries, or any number of other possibilities. Put your skills to use in the beautiful Hawkes Bay region and learn more about New Zealand's unique environments, fantastic culture, and friendly people. At the end of the internship, head south to Massey's Palmerston North campus for a few days of regrouping, recollecting, and celebrating your time in New Zealand.
