Course summary

The MA Heritage Conservation provides an opportunity to combine paid work with hands-on conservation experience and academic teaching. The programme is studied as part of a master's level degree apprenticeship and creates a new route for those with no prior conservation knowledge to enter the profession.

The programme is designed to educate future professionals in conservation of cultural heritage materials and seeks to prepare students to work as conservators in museums, historic properties, or in the private sector. The course supports specialisation in a range of different areas of conservation. While it is aimed at those who have a no prior conservation experience, students with some prior conservation knowledge may be considered for a shorter pathway.

The programme focuses on the skills, knowledge, and understanding relevant to the professional practice of conservation of a wide range of materials and contexts. Students are also encouraged to develop an ethical awareness and an understanding of the professional codes of ethics in the conservation and preservation of cultural heritage. University assessments include presentations and written assignments. Successful completion of the MA Heritage Conservation is a requirement for progression to the end-point assessment for the apprenticeship award. Graduates may progress into a range of careers in the conservation and heritage industries, or progress to further study at doctoral level.
