UCL History of Art would like to invite you to our MSc Conservation of Contemporary Art and Media virtual open sessions for 2024/25 entry. We will be running two sessions on Friday 1st December at:

10:00-11:00 GMT
(CET 11am/ EST 5am/ PST 2am/ CST (USA) 4am/ CAT 12 noon/ KST 4am/ AEDT 21.00/ IST 15.30/HKT and CST (China) 18:00)

This innovative programme launched in 2023 is designed to train the next generation of contemporary art conservators to address the challenges of caring for the art of our time within a rapidly changing world. The degree focuses on the conservation of contemporary sculpture, installation, and time-based media works of art and design, including conceptual, performance, digital and mixed media works. The programme is fundamentally grounded in hands-on training for real-world situations and expects students to critically engage in the wider debates impacting the care of contemporary collections. We are based at the new and custom-built UCL East campus.

This programme is for those who want to pursue a career in contemporary art conservation, or a closely related field. We welcome an international cohort of students from a broad range of different disciplinary backgrounds. Our students are typically highly engaged with contemporary art and culture, are curious about the materiality of art and its place in the world and are committed to rigorous thought and practice.
