Why Intern Abroad?

With a global internship, you'll build valuable job skills, such as language proficiency, cultural training, adaptability, and communication. Whatever setting you find yourself in after graduation, you'll be grateful for the variety of hard and soft skills you gained while interning abroad.


The programmes range from 1-3 months and have rolling start dates so you can start anytime! The best time obviously does tend to be over the break between the end of B Trimester and A Trimester. Read through the programme pages for more specific date information.


There is a cost for these internships, however Waikato students receive a partnership discount and are considered for the Waikato OE Travel Award.

When you go an internship, instead of paying tuition fees, you pay a programme fee directly to the internship provider. This fee will vary depending on location, program type and program length.
