Work Experience Taster Days
There are 30 Work Experience Taster Day places available each session, held twice a year. If you are between the ages of 13 - 18 and interested in a place, please email your name and the school you attend to the University of Cambridge Museums Opening Doors Project Coordinator.

Work Experience Taster Days are held three times a year, please visit Get Involved on the UCM website for future dates.

Work Experience Placements
The University of Cambridge Museums offer work experience placements in June and July for school-aged participants, providing them the opportunity to spend a week learning new skills and developing their self-confidence, timekeeping and communication.

During their placement work experience students spend half their time at the Fitzwilliam Museum and half their time at one of the other University museums. They undertake a short project ‘Curating a Personal Story’ where they are required to select two objects from each of their host museums and two from home, bringing them together in a mini exhibition which tells a story about themselves. At the end of the week the students present their mini exhibition to a small group of museum staff.
