Get Connected

Join a programme that's an integral part of New Zealand’s museum and heritage sector. It’s been designed for and with the sector to give you the professional development you need for a career in GLAM (galleries, libraries, archives, and museums) or heritage management.

Taking advantage of Wellington's rich cultural resources, you’ll head out on numerous field trips and meet with experts from local organisations, as well as from academics with strong local and international networks, along with highly qualified professionals drawn from the sector.

Flexible qualifications

Learn on the job during a placement with one of the dozens of organisations involved with the programme. If you're doing the MMHP, you'll also have the opportunity for advanced professional training and work experience through a longer internship.

You’ll get practical experience, make valuable contacts, and learn from working professionals.

Cultural Immersion

Familiarise yourself with tikanga Māori through our annual Wānanga at Hongoeka marae. Learn about the Treaty of Waitangi and how it has shaped museum and heritage organisations in New Zealand and learn about research processes by, with, and for Māori.
