History & Welsh History has strong links with the heritage sector, and an established portfolio of student placements. In the past, students have spent up to three weeks at the National Library of Wales (including Welsh-medium opportunities), the Royal Commission on the Ancient & Historic Monuments of Wales, and the Society of Antiquaries of London. From 2014/15 it is anticipated that placements will also be available in Cardiff and Shrewsbury. These placements provide the opportunity for ‘hands-on’ experience and insights into the heritage sector, and are very valuable for the CV!
Tweets from 2014 Society of Antiquaries’ placement students:
‘Got to see three copies of the Magna Carta at once today!’
‘Kudos to Aber Uni for helping me get the placement, can't wait for tomorrow'
