Course Description

What is unique about the MA programme? It is the interaction between the students and the academic staff, who are involved in the taught programme. A major part of the programme is the live projects. This is where the student body undertakes varying conservation techniques whilst on site in stately homes and museums. These projects vary in duration from anything from one to five days on site, enabling the students to live the experience of working and staying in a stately home. We have access to objects of high quality and provenance enabling the graduate to increase their portfolio potentials. Key features of the course: - the course commences with studies in conservation, ethics, furniture history, restoration theory, material science and practice - it then progresses to a research project designed to match the interest of each particular student, this is supported through the taught programme in both theory and practice. A substantial practical restoration of selected objects is undertaken and dissertation research matching the selected areas chosen is prepared l the final period of the course sees the integration of theoretical and practical studies exhibited by the dissertation and the completed restored or conserved pieces Bursaries and scholarships may be available for this course. Please enquire on application for more details.
