Volunteering and Student Projects

Research and Cultural Collections hosts volunteer programmes involving students from different disciplines across and outside the University, developing projects which are mutually beneficial.

The students work on solo projects and in groups to gain valuable work experience for developing careers in the museums and heritage sector. Research and Cultural Collections prides itself on offering valuable experiences which students learn from and enjoy.

Please note: The University of Birmingham is in the process of re-opening its campus in accordance with the latest Government COVID-19 guidelines.  During this time the Research and Cultural Collections’ volunteering and student programmes are closed. This webpage will be updated once the programmes have been relaunched.
