Step two: MA Heritage Management

In Uncategorized on October 8, 2013 at 5:00 pm

Unfortunately due to time constraints, a lapse in heritage based activity, and lack of inspiration on my behalf my blog has been rather neglected for the past 5 months or so….

…BUT things have changed and my quest for a career in the Heritage sector is looking positive!

I secured a place on the Bath Spa University MA Heritage Management course and began life as a postgraduate student a couple of weeks ago – which so far has been great!

I will continue to share my journey in heritage – albeit no longer with the National Trust but Bath Spa University – via this blog and post my work, museum visits, photos and links that I come across along the way.

Regrettably because of finances I still have to work up to 4 days a week in a retail job, which does massively limit the amount of time I can put into further reading and site visits. But through determination and early starts/late nights hopefully I’ll get everything handed in on time!


What next…

Firstly, I must apologise for the shocking amount of time that has passed since my last post – time has gone so quickly and I’ve been so busy with work, travelling up and down the country and just… general busy-ness!

So the newest heritage-career-related decision to grace my life at the moment is the fact that I’m applying for a part-time master’s in Heritage Management; I’ve wanted to do this for such a long time but the constraints of time and money have been rather unappealing. But with the end of my internship looming (eek!) and the difficulty of getting a job in the sector close to home, I decided to just go for it! Funding-wise I’ve discovered the ‘Access to Learning Fund’ from the government and there are loads of trusts that offer grants and things for furthering your education… so hopefully I’ll get a place…. If not then I’ve got to keep planning for the future… I continue to scour the internet everyday for heritage jobs! (If anyone can recommend good websites for this I’d be greatly appreciative!).

For anyone interested in working in heritage, here’s a list of job sites I’ve been using: (for seasonal, current vacancies and internships) (This one is really good) (Would love to work for the BPS!)

And then local council websites, such as BANES, Somerset, Wiltshire, North Somerset etc.

Happy hunting!
