Student Profile(s)

Will Axon

"When I applied for the Arts Market Appraisal MA* at Kingston, I was working full time so approached my employer for sponsorship. I wanted to use the masters degree to work towards my RICS accreditation, which my employer positively encouraged. I found that the course complemented my existing job within the auction world, and the staff at Kingston University were sympathetic to any conflicts in my timetable that arose from existing work commitments.

"There was a wide range of students from different backgrounds on the course, which brought a depth of experience to the classes. The facilities at Kingston were excellent, with tutors available to give as much or as little help as needed or wanted.

"I would recommend the course to anyone interested in pursuing a career in the arts, especially if they have one eye on becoming a member of the RICS. Juggling work, studies and, in my case, a young family, requires a certain level of dedication and commitment – but the end results are worth it!"


Christian Huhnt

The art market course at Kingston was instrumental for what I am doing today. I doubt I would be at the place where I am now without this course.

What the art market course taught me about the market, the dynamics of it, the history, the stories, the issues on authenticity, connoisseurship, collecting and auction business, continue to help me inspire my team and many more to join our project, as we are about to build the next logical step in art dealing history: a database to systematise the private art market.

So much of what I learned at Kingston helped me also in the Masters degree I finished soon after at LSE, in which I focused my dissertation yet again on the art market for a completely different subject (Information Systems).
