What are internships, where to find them and how to apply? Are large museums and established institutions really the ultimate locations for an internship in the arts and cultural heritage sector? In what ways could internships complement your education? And, last but not least, how can you make the best out of an internship?
This forum is aimed at all History of Art students who are interested in an exchange of experience about internships. Join us for interesting conversations which will commence with a panel and be followed by a discussion. Among the panellists are Alexandra Steinacker, Zofia Ksiazkiewicz, Nicholas Enderle, Maria Egieva and Rafaëlle Hassine — HoA students who have recently undertaken internships or related positions. Sally Brown from UCL Careers will join us to provide further guidance. Moderated by Hanna Hölling and Maria Egieva.
The event will be preceded by a short introduction to UCL Innovation and Enterprise which works with UCL students and staff to help turn knowledge and ideas into solutions that benefit us all. Janette Junghaus, Senior Programme Officer for Entrepreneurship, will talk about entrepreneurship and how it can help you enhance your career prospects after graduation. By developing entrepreneurial mind-set – ability to see opportunities where others don’t, confidence to take calculated risks and skills to make the most out of limited resources – you will put yourself ahead of competition whether you choose conventional employment or self-employment, as a career path. You will hear about free entrepreneurship skills development programmes and competitions available from UCL I&E and learn how others have benefitted from them.
