INTERNSHIPS

Internships for Undergraduate and Postgraduate Students

The Museum now offers ten week internships for tertiary students studying History and Museum Studies, so they can gain experience working in a busy regional museum.  

The interns have specific learning goals linked to their studies, such as research projects and practical projects like creating a display based on their research findings. 

The interns are fully supervised and they have opportunities to work in a range of different specialty areas of the Museum.  They also have a choice of research projects and are supported by experienced Museum educators and researchers during their internship.

The research work completed by students is catalogued and held by the Museum Library for future use by other students and members of the public. Their research makes an enormous contribution to the Museum in terms of generating knowledge and verifying stories about the people and places of historical importance in Redland.

They also contribute their energy and enthusiasm much to the delight of volunteers working with them.
