MA Conservation

The course focuses on research and practical conservation for the conservation of 3 dimensional cultural objects in wood, stone and related materials including decorative surfaces. Closely related to the BA, this course tackles more complex projects and higher level research.

We are planning to offer an additional specialism in Book and Paper Conservation from autumn 2020. This will compliment our current focus on the conservation of historic objects in wood, stone and plaster.  Look out for further updates on this page.

This one-year full time and two-years part time course is validated by Ravensbourne University London.

We offer the one-year Graduate Diploma Arts: Conservation for students who are interested in taking our MA Conservation but need to enhance an area of practice or knowledge before embarking on this specialist postgraduate course.

If you are interested in postgraduate level study of Conservation please see the indicative information here and book a meeting or open day with Dr Marina Sokhan the Head of the Conservation Department by emailing
