Student placement scheme

The National Archives’ student placement scheme is designed for students undertaking a degree or qualification in either higher or further education that includes a compulsory placement.

This scheme offers students the opportunity to apply their existing skills and knowledge to research-based projects, while developing new expertise in an organisation that straddles the government and cultural sectors. With placement projects ranging from one to three months, students will be mentored by a designated supervisor throughout their time at The National Archives and equipped with a structured learning and development plan that allows students to track their progress.

The student placement scheme is currently under review and no new placements are being offered at this time. For further information, please contact Research or check this page for updates.
