Course summary

This hands-on conversion programme is dedicated to teaching the next generation of conservators through problem-based learning on real heritage objects.

Our MSc Conservation Practice programme takes a theory into practice approach to bench conservation, led by accredited conservators and taught through lectures, seminars and laboratory practice.

Designed as a conversion programme for humanities and science graduates seeking a career in Conservation, this two-year programme offers significant experience working on archaeological and historical objects in the lab, plus real-world conservation placements.

Gaining a sophisticated understanding of theoretical principles and practical applications under expert tuition, you will become adept in the care and protection of cultural heritage artefacts through laboratory experience. Developing your skills in the practice of both new and traditional conservation techniques, you will amass considerable experience of working on cultural heritage objects from the UK and across the globe. More than this, you will demonstrate valuable transferable skills in project and resource management, problem solving and communication.

Taught by leading practitioners respected worldwide, our programme combines the knowledge and expertise to operate at professional conservation levels in the heritage sector, with a solid platform for pursuing future research.

Your strong interest in the subject is a given, but our internationally-respected entry-level programme does not require a fixed prerequisite volunteer or intern hours. The degree has been established as a conversion course making it ideal for those from humanities and science backgrounds. Within your application please share with us the evidence you have for your interest in the sector and your highest level of scientific qualification.

Celebrating the centenary of Archaeology and Conservation in 2020, we’re ranked in the world top 150 (QS World University Rankings by Subject 2020) while our research ranked 12th among archaeology departments in the UK (Research Excellence Framework 2014).
