Course summary

Museums are an integral part of the present, and a resource for the future. By studying how museums function, you will be working in an exciting and expanding, as well as an increasingly complex, subject area. Why study this course with us? In studying Museums Practice, you will have access to a wide range of resources, such as museum services and their collections across Shrewsbury and Shropshire. We have strong links to heritage organisations and their resources, including English Heritage and the National Trust. We aim to equip you with the knowledge and skills to operate within the broader heritage industry, such as in museums, but also with heritage and planning agencies, local authorities and international organisations, private enterprises and civic organisations. Our course blends theory and practice, with opportunity to gain ‘hands-on’ experience and to participate in research projects.

Assessment method

Assessments include written coursework (such as essays, reviews, reports) and oral presentations. These assessments are designed to measure the key skills which you should acquire at Master's-level study.


Entry requirements

A 2:1 honours degree in a relevant discipline or an equivalent qualification is required. Prior experience in the museum and heritage sectors can be taken into account alongside academic qualifications. Consideration will be given to those who hold a lower classification who can demonstrate they are capable of performing at the level required to complete the course successfully. International: Students from countries outside the UK are expected to have entry qualifications roughly equivalent to UK A Level for undergraduate study and British Bachelor's degree (or equivalent) for postgraduate study. To help you to interpret these equivalents, please click on your country of residence to see the corresponding entry qualifications, along with information about your local representatives, events, information and contacts. We accept a wide range of qualifications and consider all applications individually on merit. We may also take into account appropriate work experience.
