Undergraduate Opportunities in Archaeology through Workplace Learning Programme

The workplace learning module is a great chance for third year undergraduate students to gain professional experience working with local and national heritage organisations.

While undertaking their 15-day placements, the students produce reflective journals documenting their work.

This then contributes to a final report that describes in detail how they have used the opportunity to develop their skills, knowledge and employability.

This year, our students are engaging with a range of different organisations, including the National Trust at Nostell Priory and Hardwick Hall, the Collection Museum in Lincoln, Wessex Archaeology and Doncaster Museum.

On their placements, the students will learn from experts in archaeological fieldwork, heritage management, public engagement and education, museum curation and archiving, while at the same time gaining more general skills in communication, team working and working in a professional environment.

Look out for stories of our students’ experiences later this Spring!
