This module is only available in addition to the regular three-year syllabus of a standard undergraduate degree (or in addition to the four-year syllabus of an undergraduate Masters degree [MSci]). It provides a framework for students going abroad for a full academic year on a work placement and is designed to allow them to develop global experiences, obtain first-hand knowledge of another country, develop effective communication skills with people from different backgrounds, and to enhance students’ employability skills. Students who successfully complete this module will gain the degree title supplement “with International Placement”.
You will learn about archaeological practice in another country and gain an awareness of relevant structures, policies, procedures and ethos in its heritage sector. You will also develop your ability to work in a team and understand professional responsibilities as well as to learn independently in unfamiliar situations with open-mindedness and a spirit of critical enquiry, equipping you with new skills in order to maximise future career prospects.
