Most interns stay in shared apartments. You always have your own bedroom and either your own bathroom or a shared bathroom with a small number of people (2-4) and shared kitchen facilities. There is also a shared communal area such as a TV or Pool room. All apartments have internet.


The best thing to do if you go to New Zealand for an internship is to arrange your insurance from an insurance provider in your home country. The reason is that claims are made after the event, and sometimes you will be back in your home country. Having said that, your insurance from your home country will assist you when overseas. It is important to get health and travel insurance.
