Since the creation of La Alcudia University Foundation for Archaeological Research, the site has become a space for practical archaeology, linked to the University of Alicante and open to each and every archaeology student nationwide and internationally.
The internships started by the area of Archaeology have been consolidated and transformed into a regulated training area through various practical archaeology activities, developed as a complement to teaching and research activities in La Alcudia. The site offers internships (field trips) for the Undergraduate Degree in History and is also used to train students in the Master universitario de Arqueología profesional y gestión integral del patrimonio and in the cursos de Patrimonio virtual, linked to the Departamento de Prehistoria, Arqueología, Historia Antigua, Filología Griega y Filología Latina from the University of Alicante.
La Alcudia Foundation welcomes undergraduate students (in History, Humanities, Tourism, Art, etc.) from Spanish universities during the academic year to carry out their curricular work placements.
Taking advantage of the workspaces offered by the Foundation, such as its archaeology laboratory, storerooms, museum, interpretation centre and the archaeological site itself, students can expand their training and approach the daily work of their technicians: research, dissemination and heritage conservation.
Internships of the Master of Professional Archeology
The Foundation welcomes each year the students of the Máster en Arqueología Profesional y Gestión Integral del Patrimonio de la Universidad de Alicante, offering extensive archaeological spaces excavated and an enormous material collection made up of thousands of archaeological pieces, dating back from Prehistory to late antiquity, which students use to complete their knowledge and their Master’s dissertation.
The Foundation’s Archaeology and Cataloguing Areas started collaborations some years ago. They are attended by students and graduates in History and Humanities, as well as in other related disciplines, which make up a permanent collaboration group under the name of Ilici UPA.
