Professional partnerships

We have excellent contacts with a wide range of local and national bodies who provide our students with short-term and long-term work experience placements and volunteering opportunities. Recently our students have undertaken work experience with the National Trust, with the Nottingham City Museums Service, and at the British Museum.

Museum of Archaeology

The University of Nottingham Museum of Archaeology has a dedicated student volunteer programme to train and support students wanting careers in museums, heritage or education. Students can be involved in:

  • collection management 
  • researching, cataloguing and conservation of museum objects 
  • outreach and education programmes
  • the museum's travelling exhibition, 'In Search of Margidunum', which brings real Roman artefacts, replicas and dressing-up clothes to local schools.
