The programme provides an excellent academic experience for those who wish to undertake a taught MSc course at postgraduate level, for those who require the training and confidence that the MSc degree provides as the basis for further postgraduate study, or as a foundation for careers in archival or museum work, the cultural heritage industry or education.
This programme is taught through a combination of small-group seminars and tutorials, one-to-one supervision and private study.
You will be examined through coursework and a dissertation totalling approximately 30,000 words.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
A UK first class or 2:1 Honours degree at undergraduate level or the international equivalent in a relevant discipline is normally required.
No work experience is required.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS we offer you the chance to receive up to £10,000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
