Course summary

As organisations and freelance practitioners continue to grow their collections of online resources, and physical resources are increasingly digitized, there is a growing need to address the challenge of managing and curating these digital assets. This PGCert in Digital Curation is designed to provide the appropriate training for this purpose.

The course, which is offered through our new Digital Curation Lab, allows you to learn how to take advantage of digital technology and networks. It provides a specialised skills pathway ranging from digital data management to the preservation of contemporary art objects.

You will:

Develop career-enhancing theoretical knowledge and practical skills in Digital Curation.
Validate and enhance your curatorial practice within a bespoke online international network.


The course embeds opportunities for you to develop your digital curation practice through the University of Salford’s Art Collection, and other contemporary art spaces and organisations in the North West area including Open Eye Gallery, Center for Contemporary Chinese Art (CFCCA), Castlefield Gallery and The Photographic Collections Network.
