Volunteering and student opportunities

Research and Cultural Collections has a vibrant programme of volunteer opportunities for both undergraduate and postgraduate students. Participants work alongside the curatorial team to undertake projects that are beneficial to both parties, taking into account the student's areas of interest. Providing work experience opportunities for students is one of the key ways that RCC engages with the University of Birmingham student body. These opportunities are carried out with a focus on the importance of developing employability and enhancing student experience.

For more details on our current volunteering programme, see the volunteering pages for opportunities across the museums and collections on campus and beyond.
