We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Fine Art Conservation equip postgraduates with the skills to restore and maintain pieces of fine art of historic significance.
Taught MA courses are typical for this subject, though research oriented MRes and MPhil programmes may also be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject, such as Art or Design Technology.
Courses in this field allow you explore conservation and preservation techniques for a range of fine art pieces. From individual painting to whole walls and other large building interiors, you will develop the skills to work anywhere in the world as a professional.
These courses are interdisciplinary in nature, consisting of a mixture of techniques from practices in art history, science and forensics. You will gain technical knowledge in examinations, cleaning, structural repairs and stabilisation of artwork. You will also critically engage with conservation theory, applying methodologies for preventative conservation in your analysis of various art pieces.
You may wish to work as an independent practitioner for a particular region, or work in-house for organisations such as museums, art galleries and large, private estates.
