Our Internship Programme

The NUS Museum Internship Programme

The NUS Museum Internship Programme is envisioned as the beginning of a relationship with the NUS Museum, and the museum and heritage industry. The programme aims to build rapport with students, provide opportunities to work closely with museum staff and gain first-hand experience of museum work.

Internship Departments

Curatorial & Exhibitions
Interns assist with curatorial functions such as conducting curatorial research, planning and managing the exhibition process, installing exhibitions, publishing exhibition collaterals, conceptualising and running exhibition-related programmes, liasing with artists and partners. Candidates must be detail-oriented, interested in curatorial work, and be comfortable with research and writing.


Curatorial Research Intern

This internship requires the intern to work on bibliographical and literature research on 3 HDB estates – Queenstown, Commonwealth, Eunos and Sembawang. Interns will be required to research on, and tabulate, a broad overview of existing (1) factual material (historical, political, sociological, cultural, statistical, geographical, projective data) on the 3 sites, as well as uncovering parallel (2) fictional and imaginative accounts (from literature, film, art). The research should be completed by the end of January 2014 and the materials will form the basis of an interpretive exhibition on these estates.
