Museum Training Fellowships: University of East Anglia

The School of World Art Studies and Museology at UEA is pleased to announce 4 Museum Training Fellowships, for study on our MA Museum Studies degree from September 2012. The fellowships cover fees (at the home student rate) and a bursary.

The closing date for applications is 1 March 2012.

Interviews for the Fellowships will be held in the last week of March. Fellows become members of a department in the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts (SCVA), where they contribute to the team’s day-to-day work. One Fellowship is available in each of the following areas, assigned as part of the interview and selection process:

•            Curatorial

•            Collections Management

•            Education

•            Marketing/Public Services

The School of World Art Studies and Museology runs one of the longest-established programmes in Museum Studies in the UK – and the only one based inside an art gallery, the Norman Foster-designed Sainsbury Centre, which is home to a modernist collection of ethnographic, ancient, and 20th century European art. The School and University are consistently ranked in the top 10 in the UK for student satisfaction, and in the latest RAE, the School was rated first for internationally-recognised work, and joint third overall. A maximum limit of 10 students per year means that the MA in Museum Studies is student-centred and offers intensive preparation for a career in the museum profession or for a higher research degree in museum studies.

This MA combines the cutting-edge research and curatorial experience of academic staff in the School with the professional resources and experience of the SCVA. It also draws on museum resources in London and in the region, notably the Norfolk Museums Service, and incorporates a number of museum visits and expert speakers.
