The programme includes a supervised and mentored work-based placement in a heritage institution, organisation or agency. The International Centre for Cultural and Heritage Studies (ICCHS) will set up this placement for you after a detailed discussion. Previous cohorts of MPrac students have carried out their placements with:
BALTIC Centre for Comtemporary Art
Beamish North of England Open Air Museum
Tyne and Wear Archives and Museums
The Great North Museum
Hartlepool Arts, Museums and Events.
The work-based placement requires the submission of a project agreed between the placement host organisation, student and the University.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
An upper-second-class Honours degree, or an international equivalent, in any subject.
We will also consider applicants on an individual basis with non-standard qualifications and/or relevant professional experience in the museum, gallery and heritage sectors.
Where applicants have borderline or non-standard qualifications we may contact you to request additional information, and/or, in some instances, to request you attend an interview (these may be in person, via telephone or Skype).
Applicants whose first language is not English require IELTS 6.5 (with a minimum 6.0 in writing and a minimum of 5.5 in other sub-skills), or equivalent (with a minimum of 54 in speaking and writing and 51 in listening and reading).
No work experience is required.
Fortunately enough I was able to find StudyPortals. Right from the start of the application to getting the confirmation of admission I was using StudyPortals.
