This program offers students a unique opportunity to gain an insight into environmental natural resource management programs in New Zealand.

Examples would include: characterizations of volcanic landforms in the Auckland monogenetic volcanic field, explore controls on geothermal activity in the central North Island, work with seabird researchers endeavouring to understand the impacts on seabird distribution, reviewing the geomorphology, glacial and periglacial landforms of the central Southern Alps and more..

Nepal is known for its natural beauty and vast mountain ranges containing 8 of the 10 highest peaks in the world. Nepal lies along the southern slopes of the Himalayan mountain ranges and has an estimated population of around 30 million. In April 2015 parts of Nepal were devastated by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake, the regions worst in 80 years killing over 8000 people, leaving thousands injured and flattening villages. Today, many villages are slowly rebuilding. In collaboration with the Canberra based, REACH for Nepal Foundation, we will be visiting rural Nepal in the Pokhara Valley to help rebuild, educate, and assist the children within a local Nepali community.

The program is based around 2 projects:

- Academic project: You will work on a health-related project that is specific to the community we are visiting during Semester 2 and deliver the project while in Nepal.

- Rebuild project: You will assist with a rebuild project, this could be the building of a wall, part of a classroom or playground for the local school.
