Internship (AHVM004)

30 credits

This module is designed to give you the opportunity to work productively for a museum, gallery or comparable arts institution, including agencies and corporate bodies associated with the contemporary art world. It provides you with ‘hands on’ experiential learning while you benefit the partner’s operation in undertaking graduate-level activities on its behalf. You will acquire first-hand insights into the work of the museum and gallery sector and/or the corporate and institutional bodies that support contemporary artistic practice. The specific programme of work in each internship will be negotiated in advance between the University and the partner organisation in question. All placements are supervised and monitored by the University and the partner institution. Assessment will involve the mentor/supervisor from the partner institution.

This module is not suitable for non-specialist students.

It is not recommended for interdisciplinary pathways.
