This intensive one-year conversion course aims to enable graduates from a non-conservation background to advance their knowledge and skills in preparation for further study or a career in the heritage sector. Students have the opportunity to learn from practitioners with extensive experience and can benefit from our team’s strong links with museums, professional bodies and heritage agencies. During this course, students are be expected to produce their own portfolios of specialist drawings and photographs, and have the chance to develop technical skills for the treatment of historic objects. Students are also encouraged to take advantage of opportunities to become involved in live projects.
For the most up to date module information, please visit the course page for this programme on our website. Some programmes provide you with the opportunity to focus your study in a particular area through optional modules. Timetabling arrangements may limit the availability of some optional modules to some students. As the options often reflect staff research interests, they may alter over time due to staff availability.
Students are assessed at key points throughout the year. A portfolio of drawings and photographs are required as part of the conservation skills module, which includes 2 practical assessments. The conservation theory module is assessed by a presentation and phase test. Other modules require documentation in the form of notebooks, essays and reports, and an assessment of the treatments applies to historic objects.
