Those wishing to apply should be:
- Early to mid-career museum or heritage professionals.
- Have good spoken and written English.
- Dedicated to a career in the heritage sector.
- Working for the Ministry of Antiquities.
- Have a clearly defined plan of how they should use their six weeks in the UK to further develop their own skills and their role in their institutions.
