Heritage Practice

Our Heritage Practice MPrac will give you essential and relevant work experience in the cultural and heritage sector. You will apply theoretical frameworks, learned during your MA studies, in a work-based context. The course includes a supervised and mentored work-based placement in a heritage institution, organisation or agency. We will set up this placement for you following the submission of a project agreed by you, the placement organisation, and your tutors.

Entry requirements

A 2.1 Honours degree, or an international equivalent, in any subject. We will also consider applicants on an individual basis with non-standard qualifications and/or relevant professional experience in the museum, gallery and heritage sectors. Where applicants have borderline or non-standard qualifications we may contact you to request additional information, and/or, in some instances, to request you attend an interview (these may be in person, via telephone or Skype). Applicants whose 1st language is not English require IELTS 6.5 (with at least 6.0 in writing and speaking) or equivalent.
