Experience Arts Internship Scheme

 Aston Webb dome






About the Experience Arts Scheme 2017- 2018

This unique programme allows students to gain hands on experience of working in a leading arts organisation in the West Midlands region. The University of Birmingham is working with over 10 organisations to create paid opportunities for you to gain access and experience in the arts sector. This is perfect for students interested in gaining some real life work experience which employers really value.

This is your opportunity to learn more about the sector and how the organisations within it operate, whilst giving you the chance to build your networks. Each internship offers something unique and part-time roles vary from marketing and publishing to theatre and events. 

We are looking for students to work with some of Birmingham’s leading arts organisations where you will also receive a £500 bursary. The internship will last 10 days in duration and can be completed over a part-time basis in the Spring Term (January - March 2018).

It is open to all students at the University of Birmingham on an undergraduate or postgraduate degree.

Flexibility will be provided for you to complete your internship around your timetables/studies.
