The Museum and Heritage Development course from Nottingham Trent University combines professional and academic practice and the need to learn core skills with the opportunity to experiment with new creative practices; from collections management to filmmaking, from institutional planning and audience development to exhibitions and curating live public events.
By developing a rich portfolio of professional practice and experience during the course, we help students to develop the confidence and courage to see themselves as the future of the field, to begin to establish themselves within the sector, and to prepare them for the workplace.
Careers and employability
The course, your placements and live projects will give you experience and skills that are highly valued by museums and the wider heritage industry employers. As well as museum curators, educators, and visitor service managers in museums and the heritage field, this course also provides the opportunity to work with and join a heritage consultancy company.
