Conservation student, Department of Conservation, University of Gothenburg

My name is Karin Hindborg and I´m studying to become a conservator at the University of Gothenburg. During my fifth semester I have been doing my internship at SVK for three months. It has been three fun, educational and intense months. I strongly recommend SVK for an internship placement. They are used to accept internships and have a structure for the weeks of the internship. They are very nice and caring and really want you to grow as much as possible. At the textile department there are 7 hired conservators and they have all helped me develop in different areas.

During my time at SVK I have been able to work with three projects that where my own. I have also been helping out with a lot of others. Apart from my projects I have been given parts of the education that used to be included in the textile specialisation of the BA in conservator. I really appreciated that. If there was anything I wanted to try out, I asked my intern supervisor and she helped arranging it.

It was a very positive experience to see the cooperation between different fields in conservation. It is a big advantage to have different fields in the same workplace. You can take advantage of each others expertise and tools.

During my time at SVK I have grown and developed my skills very much. The internship is really an important part of the education.
