NHNZ The Science and Natural History Filmmaking programme was established with the support of the Dunedin-based production house NHNZ. That relationship has grown and prospered over the intervening years. NHNZ staff teach into the film course and may participate in seminars at the Department, providing an up-to-the-minute perspective of the industry. Senior NHNZ staff often act as mentors for second-year film students and many of our graduates have subsequently developed their careers within the company.
Otago Museum Our Science in Society Stream partners closely with the Otago Museum in Dunedin, which houses one of the largest and significant collections of natural science specimens and humanities artefacts in New Zealand. Our students have the opportunity to intern at the museum and to collaborate with museum staff on the production of original exhibitions.
