Museums and Collections Award (CAL students only)
One successful candidate will work for one month on a museum or collection project, hosted by the Melbourne University. The student will also be exposed to other facets of the cultural collections, through activities such as attendance at meetings, workshops or spending the day with other museums and collections staff from across the university, including curators, collection managers, archivists and conservators in order to get a more comprehensive picture of what their work entails.
U21 Video Profiles
Some of our successful candidates from previous summer schools have been filmed talking about their time overseas - why they applied, what they did and how they believe their experiences have benefited them academically, culturally and for their future careers!
