The Barber offers unrivalled opportunities for training in three fascinating areas of gallery work.

Every academic year, we offer a part-time, paid internships in each of three fields: Collections; Communications and Marketing; and Learning and Engagement. These 19-week posts offer a great first step into careers in museums and the arts generally, and many of our alumni have found them useful stepping stones into jobs with some of the most famous galleries, museums and collections in the UK, including the National Gallery, Tate Liverpool, Turner Contemporary and the British Museum – to name but four.

Please check this page for our 2022-23 internships.
