We offer an MSc in International Heritage Visualisation which will equip you with practical experience and knowledge of the latest digital technologies and their current use in the field. 3D laser scanning, digital reconstruction and animation, virtual reality and real-time visualisation are all introduced on this course. Excellent research computing facilities are available within the Digital Design Studio, including one of Europe’s largest immersive Virtual Reality laboratories.

This will appeal to you if you are interested in combining the virtual with the past, and will provide key digital skills with applications in cultural heritage, digital humanities, archaeology, conservation, tourism and digital design. Our previous students have successfully gone into careers in conservation, heritage and architectural visualisation, independent film, and academic research.

Full-fee funding available for Scottish and EU applicants. Applicants to the course will be automatically considered for a Scottish Funding Council grant which covers 100% of fees.

Additional Scholarships Available. The Glasgow School of Art offer a range of scholarships for fees and maintenance.

Expressions of interest from self-employed archaeologists wishing to be considered for fieldwork contracts in the midlands
Archaeology Warwickshire

Archaeology Warwickshire are seeking expressions of interest from self-employed archaeologists wishing to be considered for fieldwork contracts in the midlands.

Archaeology Warwickshire is a dynamic provider of a wide range of commercial heritage services. Our reputation for proficient archaeological solutions and efficient, professional delivery has resulted in a high demand for our services.

We are looking for skilled, motivated, and mobile archaeologists with considerable experience in a wide range of British archaeology to undertake fieldwork both as part of a team and independently. We are particularly keen to receive expressions from archaeologists with a proven track record in undertaking and reporting on watching briefs, and/or supervising evaluations and/or directing excavations with report production to publication standard. We are also keen to expand our network of experienced historic building recorders and IHBC qualified built heritage consultants.

Archaeology Warwickshire is a CIfA Registered Organisation and we expect to pay over and above the salaried equivalent CIfA minima and BAJR approved rates (including the necessary uplift for sickness and holidays), and in return we expect to get professionalism, integrity and commitment.

Applicants should provide a minimum of two contactable referees; prove their self-employed status (or commitment to become so); provide evidence of their insurance and hold valid CSCS cards. Membership of CIfA is highly desirable.

Interested?
