We are proud to be a part of the University of Reading and we offer a range of exciting opportunities for students at all levels.


Our Museum Studies programme is a unique chance to combine a heritage qualification with Archaeology or Classics at undergraduate level. You will take on challenging projects with real collections in working museums with professional staff. Additionally you can benefit from placements and engage in a third year exhibition module. We also support dissertations on museum and public heritage topics. Please click here to discover more details about the programme.

Collections Based Research

Interested in using the collections within your studies? Search our databases for useful information or check out our Collections Based Research page for various opportunities available to students.


We offer placements for students as part of their course. Interested? Talk to the appropriate person within your department regarding a placement at the University Art Collection.


We can offer up to a week of work experience to pupils from surrounding schools and colleges. Work experience usually involves a series of taster sessions throughout the art collection, museum and archives.


We have a variety of exciting and flexible volunteer projects, which you can get involved in whilst you study. At the University of Reading your volunteer work is recognised via the RED Award.
