Abbotsford offers a variety of opportunities for students to engage with our collections and the unique built and natural heritage of our site.

We enjoy a strong relationship with Borders College and regularly offer work placements with students and apprentices in different departments across our organisation.

We also offer some summer volunteering opportunities for students interested in history, literature and Scott.

University groups are also very welcome to visit Abbotsford and we regularly receive international summer schools and student groups undertaking courses at undergraduate and postgraduate level on literature, history of art and design and interdisciplinary studies.
