We are keen to support students 16+ with an interest in librarianship, through short unpaid work experience opportunities during July and August. These are usually for 1-2 weeks and you will meet different library teams and shadow basic tasks. If you are interested in learning more about working in an academic library, please get in touch to discuss what we can offer by e-mailing

The University of Sunderland recognises that young persons from the local community gain valuable experience of the ‘world of work’ by engaging in short work experience placements. You can view the University’s Work Experience: Policy and Guidance online.
