Course summary

If you want to study museum studies and archaeology at a British university but don’t have the correct qualifications, our four-year BA Museum Studies and Archaeology with International Foundation Year programme enables you to undertake an undergraduate museum studies and archaeology degree.You will complete a foundation year (called Year 0) before progressing onto our three-year BA Museum Studies and Archaeology degree. This means you can apply for a single four-year visa that covers the whole duration of your studies.The foundation year is designed to equip you with the subject-specific and general study skills needed to cope with the demands of undergraduate study. Our high-quality teaching is geared towards the needs of students from a wide range of educational backgrounds.**Careers**This degree can lead to a variety of careers. The course is an ideal foundation to begin your career in heritage management, commercial archaeology, and research, as well as disciplines such as teaching, business, publishing and marketing.You will gain a broad range of subject-specific and transferable skills spanning the humanities and sciences. Employers consistently rank attitudes and aptitudes for work higher than any other factor, according to the CBI/Pearson Education and Skills survey report 2019. Our curriculum is designed with this in mind, giving you not just knowledge in subjects you are passionate about, but also the qualities that employers really care about – qualities that are transferable to a diverse range of careers.As a Museum Studies and Archaeology graduate you will develop strong transferable skills, and gain first-hand experience in handling objects, delivering presentations, and investigating other cultures in depth. Your practical experience of archaeological techniques will also give you skills in analysis, problem-solving, working in teams and fieldwork.You will learn to think and research like a museum professional, and your three years’ experience of working within a multifaceted organisation will make you highly employable in any sector.We have long-established, excellent relationships with employers within the heritage, archaeology and related sectors. Previous employers have included the Australian government, the National Trust and the Science Museum.
