YOUR CHILD. IN NEW ZEALAND.
It is not only a big step for your child to travel to another country to complete their internship. Often, for the parent it represents the first time their child has spent a significant amount of time away from home. New Zealand is very safe and the internship will be highly beneficial. Rest easy in the knowledge that we here at New Zealand Internships do everything we can to make sure this is so. The most common worries/fears or doubts a parent might have are addressed below;
New Zealand is consistently rated as the fourth friendliest and safest countries in the world. Owing to its relative isolation, it remains largely on the sidelines of the global political landscape and international conflict. New Zealand does not have any dangerous animals or plants.
At New Zealand Internships, while we acknowledge the necessity to keep a positive balance between work and play, rest assured that we have went to every possible length to ensure that both your child, the company and the University are happy with the arrangements and that a successful completion will award University credits and the relevant experience required. Unsuccessful internships happen very rarely, and, in our Eight years of operation, New Zealand Internships has never been the cause for an intern failing to complete their internship for factors within their control.
An internship abroad – not to mention one that is as far away as New Zealand is, will represent a massive opportunity for your child. He/she will be in a foreign and unfamiliar country and despite the many services New Zealand Internships offers to make the Interns experience safe, comfortable and stress-free, they will still need to deal with this in their own individual ways. Invariably, your child will grow and develop emotionally and socially in a remarkably positive way.
The safety and security of our interns comes first and foremost. We offer a 24/7 help desk and an emergency phone number to call.
New Zealand Internships also aims to help interns with their time in New Zealand from a social aspect also. We host regular trips to some of the best locations all over New Zealand that interns can join and meet fellow interns. This is all facilitated using our very own in-house travel and booking website at www.studenttrips.co.nz. If you are stuck for present ideas or looking to give something special to your child that you know they will enjoy, then consider giving them a gift voucher for one of these Student Trips.
New Zealand is a first-world Western country and is the home to many internationally recognised companies. An internship in New Zealand is always a valuable feature to have on any CV and becomes a point of interest for future employers. A full outline of Living Costs is found here.
