Student Internships

Te Pūnaha Matatini Summer Internship Programme 2018-19

Applications are now closed. The timeline for responses is available here. Most partner organisations have completed their interviews and decisions will be made by 19th October. Successful candidates will have received an offer by the end of this week. Due to the large volume of applications received, our responses to enquiries during this time may be slow.

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, the defence forces and private companies. In 2017, over 80 students applied and we placed over 20 students at 7 partner organisations. Most of our interns were placed in small teams of 3 students rather than as individuals. Students were from all over New Zealand, predominantly studying STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) based subjects. The feedback from last summer’s interns was very positive and you can read all about their experiences here.
