New Zealand Wellington Cable Car 254848012 Hero

Wellington is located on the southern tip of the North Island and is New Zealand’s capital city. Considered New Zealand’s cultural heart, Wellington features many museums, live music venues, theaters, and art festivals. Wellington is also a leading center for creative industries such as film and computer technologies.

Often compared to U.S. cities such as Seattle and Portland due to its climate and culture, Wellington has all of the charms of a smaller European city with the beauty of New Zealand’s flora and fauna. True to the island spirit, Wellington’s residents take advantage of the close access to the sea – almost all of the city’s population lives within 2 miles of the coastline. Come intern abroad with API in Wellington!

“Interning abroad is an opportunity that could change your life. I say it could change your life because I strongly believe that what you get out of an international experience is what you put into it. So, if you are considering an internship abroad, be prepared to give it all you have. Not only do fewer than 1% of American college students study abroad, but even fewer of those do an internship abroad. It is an opportunity to set yourself apart from your peers and have the experience of a lifetime learning and living in a new culture."
