Student Placements

Archives & Special Collections provides in-course placements to University of Glasgow students on particular courses - your academic will tell you if this option is available to you.

When we can, we also make available internships for University of Glasgow students via the Careers Service's Internship Hub.

As we receive a large number of speculative applications each year, we regret that we cannot accommodate all requests.
