Travel through some of the planet’s most spectacular scenery, immerse yourself in Kiwi culture, and see parts of New Zealand open only to locals, all while earning university credit over your summer break. The National Expedition and Internship will take you across the North and South Islands and place you in an internship where you’ll work on real world problems relevant to your degree.
The six week study abroad program includes a two week national expedition throughout New Zealand starting in May or June followed by a four week internship.
Agriculture and Environment with Internship
Through field visits and in-depth sessions with local experts, you will gain an understanding of the intricate relationships between agricultural and environmental issues in New Zealand and how these issues shape the everyday lives of Kiwis and the country as a whole. Four week internships within government agencies, agribusinesses, non-profit environmental organizations, wildlife sanctuaries, and wineries are all possibilities.
Each National Expedition and Internship track has a unique focus, with various dates and itineraries. However, the fees and entry requirements are the same for all tracks. Explore New Zealand scholarships are available for each track.
UNCW Students may also apply for a UNCW Education Abroad Grant and additional study abroad scholarships. Grant applications and additional information are available at www.uncw.edu/international/abroad/aid/
