Sydney University Museums offer a limited number of work experience placements to school students throughout the year. Placements are open to secondary school students in year 10 and are for three days duration.

Students work with the Education and Public Programs team gaining experience in a variety of areas, including:

  • Museum education
  • Research in a university environment
  • Object handling
  • Arts administration
  • Public programs and events in museums.

Our work experience program places an emphasis on archaeology, ancient history and classics, art history, and museum studies. Places do fill quickly, we encourage interested students to apply early in the year.

To apply: Please send us a copy your resume and a cover letter explaining why you would like to be considered for a placement and outlining your interests. Please remember to include placement dates, if applicable.

Applications that do not contain both a resume and a cover letter may not be considered.
