Student Internships

Te Pūnaha Matatini is a New Zealand Centre of Research Excellence with researchers and students based all over New Zealand. We coordinate an internship scheme for partner organisations including iwi, Ministries, government departments, and private companies.

Te Pūnaha Matatini Summer Internship Programme 2019-20 – APPLICATIONS NOW CLOSED.

Thank you for the excellent response to our call for applications for the internship programme. We were overwhelmed by the quality of the applications and the commitment of applicants to Aotearoa.

Whilst there is no perfect way to apply for an internship (or job) there were a few common features in the successful applications. All these applications, particularly the cover letter, were clearly written with our programme in mind. They talked specifically about why they thought Te Pūnaha Matatini would be a good organisation to be involved with, they explained why a particular placement appealed to them and what skills they had that suited that placement.   

We look forward to receiving applications from some of you again next year. Have a great summer. Ngā mihi nui.
