Graduate Diploma Arts: Conservation

The Graduate Diploma Arts: Conservation provides an opportunity for you to build on your existing, closely-related conservation-craft skills and knowledge and gain the skill-set and knowledge-base required to undertake the MA Conservation with us. It’s ideal if you are moving from another conservation specialist area to the conservation of historic objects or have had a significant gap since your previous studies, and it is equivalent to the final year of our BA (Hons) Conservation Studies (Level 6).

On the course, your learning will be supported in a number of ways through lectures, group discussion, tutorials, seminars, field trips, workshops, demonstrations and group critiques as well as individual supervision of projects. You will be encouraged and supported to develop your research and practice skills and to develop communication skills to articulate your ideas, proposals and document your work through writing, verbal presentations, and visual recording.

When completed, this Graduate Diploma Arts course will equip you with the skills and confidence to pursue postgraduate study through our MA Conservation.

The Graduate Diploma Arts: Conservation is delivered full-time across one academic year or part-time across two academic years. If you are not able to complete the course and need to leave after successfully completing the first unit, you may be awarded a Graduate Certificate.

Places are subject to availability in the relevant group.
