The New Zealand National Expedition Program, organized by the Massey University School of Communication, Journalism and Marketing; Deadline 15 Mar 2019
New Zealand National Expedition and Internship Program
Massey University’s National Expedition and Internship Program is open to undergraduate students from any university wishing to study, travel, and intern in New Zealand for 6 weeks in June-July 2019. The program is organised by the ACEJMC-accredited School of Communication, Journalism and Marketing, and it begins with the two week ‘Image and Identity Tour’ which takes students across both Islands to delve into how successful the brands and images of the tourism industry are at capturing the attention of people new to the country and culture.
The tour finishes in the capital city of Wellington where students stay to complete a four week internship working on real world problems relevant to their degrees in Journalism, Media Studies, Public Relations, Advertising, Marketing, Communication, or related areas.
Exploration of some of the planet’s most spectacular scenery, immersion in Kiwi culture, and engagement with key industry players are all integrated with academic coursework that is worth 6-8 U.S. semester credits. In-country transport, accommodation, and tuition are all included in the program fee, and you can learn more about the itinerary, academics, internships, and student experiences on our website:
or connect with us on Facebook on our ‘New Zealand National Expedition & Internship’ page.
Program dates: June 10 – July 19, 2019
Application deadline: March 15, 2019
Some of your students might alternatively be interested in joining the Creative Expression and Digital Media cohort – another track of the National Expedition and Internship Program, open to students in Theatre, Scriptwriting, Creative Writing, Publishing, Media Studies, and Digital Media Production majors.
