Student placements

As part of the Postgraduate Campus Based taught Programmes, all students are required to complete an eight week placement in a museum, gallery or related institution. By working closely with our network partners we hope to develop projects which give valuable experience to students as well as enable museums to derive tangible practical benefits.

We are always keen to broaden our network of placement providers.  If your museum, gallery or cultural institution has not previously offered a placement but would like to do so we’d like to hear from you.  Please contact Sarah Allard at sa563@le.ac.uk for more information.

Each scholarship is worth £3,000, which will be awarded as a fee discount. The deadline for applications is 30th June 2017.

Exceptional & Extraordinary

Exceptional & Extraordinary invited four artists to explore behind the scenes of eight of the UK’s renowned medical museums and – in collaboration with experts in medical history, disability and museums – to produce a series of thought-provoking new commissions that examine our attitudes towards difference with the aim of stimulating debate around the implications of a society that values some lives more than others.
