What is involved? 

During an internship you will gain a valuable insight into the Arts and have opportunities to help on interesting projects and learn practical skills. You may wish to complete an internship as part of your academic study plan or to explore the possibility of a career in the Arts. You will take responsibility for a specific task or project within the organisation that is tailored to your learning or development objectives. You will also gain useful skills that will be valuable for both your CV and personal and professional development.

You will spend your internship in one of the Gallery departments under the guidance of a dedicated supervisor, with whom you will determine your learning objectives and have regular meetings to review your progress and ensure that you are having a positive experience.

We offer internships in a range of departments, including Development, Picture Library, Conservation, Curatorial, Registrars, and Publishing.
