|Credit level (Normal year taken)||SCQF Level 11 (Postgraduate)
||Availability||Not available to visiting students
|Summary||This course is a work placement with a final written report. The course serves the MSc Architectural History and Theory. The placement runs over one semester, and demands one full day per week from the student. The internship has three main elements: a plan of work drawn up between the host institution, the student, and the postgraduate director, the work itself, and a final report which is assessed. The work itself will depend on what can be provided by the host institution, but will be appropriate and sustaining for a student at this level.
Aims of the course:
The work placement is designed to give students experience of applying and developing their knowledge and skills on real projects for host organisations involved in architecture or built heritage in or near Edinburgh. Each project will be tailored to the host organization and the student's individual needs and interests.
