Alongside the faculty and university wide schemes offering work experience and volunteering, the department has several specialised opportunities for you to get involved with.
This is ideal if you're looking to build some subject-specific skills, or try out working in the museums, heritage or education sectors.
When it comes to applying for jobs in the heritage sector, if you haven’t done other things, you’re not going to stand out. Take those voluntary opportunities, go on the digs, get involved with schools, the museum, the Lakeside Arts centre...You'll stand out and have an amazing time doing it.
Our Museum of Archaeology has a dedicated student volunteer programme to train and support students wanting careers in museums, heritage or education.
You can get involved in:
Our projects include school visits, talks, working with museums, open resources, and community archaeology projects.

More on fieldwork
