Volunteer and work experience placements
As part of our commitment to training and outreach, the British School at Athens is pleased to offer work experience and volunteer placements to university level students and above. Opportunities are currently open at Athens in the Administration Department, Archive, Fitch Laboratory, Library and Museum, at the BSA’s Knossos Research Centre, and on a limited number of off-site digital placements.
Volunteer applications are reviewed four times and year, at the beginning of March, June, September and December. Applicants should send a CV to the Assistant Director (firstname.lastname@example.org) stating which department they are seeking an internship in, and they should also arrange for a referee to write on their behalf.
We are happy to accept volunteer applications from individuals based locally, or from those abroad who have secured funding through an external source (e.g. a university scholarship, Erasmus+, Turing Scheme). From time to time small bursaries may be available to support travel for volunteer placements.
The Knossos Curatorial Project operates its only volunteer scheme, with bursaries available to support travel to Crete.
We currently offer internships in the following departments:
