Upon request, preparatory and study-related traineeships and student placements are offered in various parts of the museum. In the restoration workshop, there is the possibility to prepare for a university course or vocational training during a voluntary year working in monument preservation. The placement year is recognised as a pre-study internship for the “Restoration” degree course (specialisation in technical cultural heritage, metal, handicraft). The museum is a recognised assignment location of the International Youth Services (ijgd) and the Jugendbauhütte (youth builder’s hut) Stralsund/Szczecin of the German Foundation for Monument Protection.
