About this course
Situated in an elegant Georgian town house in the centre of the City, the Jane Austen Centre houses a permanent exhibition which tells the story of Jane Austen’s brief but eventful stay in Bath. The Centre offers one enthusiastic and motivated intern the chance to be involved in the day-to-day running of the Centre, including giving introductory talks to visitors from all over the world. The placement is likely to be of particular appeal to students with a passionate interest in all things Austen, and the successful candidate will be expected to take the Jane Austen seminar course, if offered, as well as to have read Austen’s two Bath novels (Persuasion and Northanger Abbey) prior to arrival.
