Internships & student opportunities

Students across all disciplines engage with the Grainger Museum through curriculum, or through Internships and placements. Students studying degrees in music may apply to participate in the annual Student Composer in Residence program, run in collaboration with IgniteLAB (FFAM). Students are also encouraged to develop programming focussed on the student community or wider public. Contact for further information.
