Placement Projects

The MA placements, which normally total about 30 days, are a key element of the programme. These are project-based and use reflective practice to help you develop your skills. Initial placement ideas are discussed with the MA Director before you start your programme, taking practical issues such as location, travel and timing into account. The aim is to find you a placement project which best enables you to develop your intellectual and professional interests as well as contributing to the activities and projects of your host organisation – so you can take this developing professional expertise forward into your career. MA International Cultural Heritage Management Students have done some amazing projects in heritage organisations around the world – and some have even been offered their first heritage job in their placement organisation.
