Student Internships

Te Pūnaha Matatini Summer Internship Programme 2019-20

Applications open mid-July 2019. 

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.

In 2018, we had over 160 students apply, of whom 29 were successful and placed at 11 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 previous interns has been very positive and you can read more about their experiences.
