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.

Over the 2021-22 summer period we had an intern working with Te Hiku Media. Te Hiku is a charitable media organisation, collectively belonging to the Far North iwi of Ngāti Kuri, Te Aupouri, Ngai Takoto, Te Rārawa and Ngāti Kahu. The station is an iwi communications hub for iwi radio, online TV and media services. Māori language revitalisation is a core focus of Te Hiku Media, as is archiving and training.

If you are from an organisation that is interested in collaborating with us on future internships, get in touch at
