Elizabeth from USA tells the story of her time in New Zealand

Neuroscience Internship

“HI! My name is Elizabeth and I am nineteen years old. I am here from the United States on my gap year (a year off between high school and college). My internship is doing research with stroke patients. At the beginning of my internship I did a lot of tasks such as ordering equipment, helping put together the protocol for the research project, lab set-up and recruiting possible subjects for the study. I was also able to attend several physiotherapy lectures and found them so intriguing that I at one point considered switching to studying physiotherapy instead of neuroscience. I’ve met many people who are brilliant at what they do and it is amazing to see them be so passionate about it.

I chose this program because I liked how you were given a lot of independence and were able to explore the country on your own time. New Zealand Internships also connected me with an internship very quickly and were more than welcome to find something else for me if I was not satisfied with what was provided. I happened to love the first option presented to me, which was doing research with stroke patients.

My favourite thing to do in New Zealand was go hiking, and I highly recommend taking some time to do the Lake Waikaremoana Great Walk. New Zealand is a breath-taking country no matter where you go. There is so much to see and sometimes you feel like you don’t have enough time, but making good use of your weekend is very rewarding.”



I would absolutely recommend an Internship abroad! If I had to organise everything on my own, I believe I would never have had such a magnificent time as I could have through using the services of New Zealand Internships.

The Netherlands
Internship in Forensic Science

New Zealand has been the ideal place to complete my internship. My English improved and I was able to be placed in a very difficult industry and learned many things. Typical tasks included site visits, lab analysis and reports.
