Introduction

Conservators play a key role in the protection and care of cultural heritage, preserving artworks, architecture, archaeology, and museum collections for future generations to enjoy.

The BA (Hons) Conservation of Cultural Heritage degree offers the chance to gain extensive, hands-on experience working on a range of historic materials provided by museums, historic houses, and private collections.

Students on the course work together in high-specification, purpose-built laboratories in the University's Peter de Wint Building. During their studies, they can become familiar with different materials, time periods, and collections within their historical context.

Conservation is a multidisciplinary course, drawing together skills in art, science and history, and applying these to cultural heritage. Students in this course have the opportunity to study both the theory and practice of conservation. This enables students to navigate decision-making and ethics through independent research and the guidance of tutors.

Throughout the course, students can carry out conservation treatments and scientific analysis of historical artefacts. This starts with simple objects in the first year and increases in complexity as skills and knowledge grow. The course culminates in an exhibition of work at the end of the final year, celebrating the achievements of the graduating group with their family and friends, as well as potential employers.

The second term of year two offers students the opportunity to study at a partner institution, choose from a range of optional modules from across the School of History and Heritage, or undertake an extended work placement. Students have the opportunity to source their own placement in a historic property, museum, or private workshop in the UK, or overseas.
