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.
