Following the latest advice from the Victorian Government, the NGV will temporarily close to the public from Friday 28 May, 2021.
Please keep following our social media for updates and daily stories.
Exhibition tickets dated within the temporary closure period will be automatically refunded.
We wish all members of our community well during this time and look forward to welcoming you back to the Gallery soon.
The National Gallery of Victoria offers a limited number of one week work experience placements for secondary school students. Placements are based with the NGV Learn Team and where possible with other Departments. Work experience in any one facet of the NGV cannot be guaranteed.
Placements are limited and we cannot guarantee a placement for all applicants. For this reason, we strongly recommend students having other work experience placement options.
The NGV will have four one week blocks available for students to complete placements — please refer to the dates below.
Term 1 week: Monday 28 March to Friday 1 April
Term 2 week: Monday 20 June to Friday 24 June
Term 3 week: Monday 5 September to Friday 9 September
Term 4 week: Monday 28 November to Friday 2 December
Please ensure that you approach your school prior to submitting your application as we are unable to accommodate placements outside the above dates. It is important to note placements occur during school term time.
We will be taking applications from May to October 1st 2021, for work experience placements in 2022.
