Sedgwick Museum of Earth Sciences



Are you interested in Earth sciences? Love museums and want to get involved? Or maybe you are looking to build your CV, be part of a team and get to know more people. Volunteering might be for you! We have regular opportunities for volunteering at the Museum throughout the year - all the details can be found here.

Work Experience

The Museum actively participates in annual work experience initiatives as part of the University Cambridge Museums group. We aim to provide targeted opportunities for the local community and for neurodiverse students each year. 

Update for 2024: The Museum is not currently taking any further work experience students for this year. We encourage all students to consider volunteering at the Sedgwick Museum or other UCMs as an alternative way to get involved.
