Museum Internship for MA Museum Studies

The School of World Art Studies and Museology is pleased to offer a Curatorial Museum Internship, for study on our MA Museum Studies degree from September 2013. The internship covers fees (at the home student rate) and a bursary of approximately £5,000.

The closing date for admission applications is 1 March 2013.

Interviews for the Internship will normally be held in April 2013. Interns become members of a department in the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts (SCVA), where they contribute to the team’s day-to-day work.

The School of World Art Studies and Museology runs one of the longest-established programmes in Museum Studies in the UK – and the only one based inside an art gallery, the Norman Foster-designed Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts. The School and University are consistently ranked in the top 10 in the UK for student satisfaction, and in the latest RAE, the School was rated first for internationally-recognised work, and joint third overall. A maximum limit of 10 students per year means that the MA in Museum Studies is student-centred and offers intensive preparation for a career in the museum profession or for a higher research degree in museum studies.

This MA combines the cutting-edge research and curatorial experience of academic staff in the School with the professional resources and experience of the SCVA. It also draws on museum resources in London and in the region, notably the Norfolk Museums Service, and incorporates a number of museum visits and expert speakers.
