Work Placements

Students studying history, archaeology, or heritage have the opportunity to undertake a work placement as part of their course.

I came here because the Archaeology course was one of the best.
First Year Archaeology Student

In recent years, students have undertaken placements at:

  • Hawarden Castle (resistivity survey looking for evidence of Civil War siege mining)
  • Cheshire Military Museum (designing schools education programme)
  • Beeston Castle (access project for English Heritage)
  • St John's Church, Chester (designing a guidebook)
  • Whitby Park, Ellesmere Port (interpretation project)


Voluntary Work

Outside lectures, students also have the opportunity to do voluntary work at a number of local organisations such as the Cheshire Military Museum and the Chester Amphitheatre project.
