Sotheby's Institute of Art - London
Found in the heart of Bloomsbury, and only minutes away from the British Museum, the National Gallery and Sotheby’s Auction House, the London campus is at the centre of one of the world’s most important art capitals. The Institute is situated in Bedford Square, built between 1775 and 1783, and is one of the best preserved Georgian squares in London with a private central garden.
Sotheby's auction house provides students with privileged access to pre-sale viewings, talks by experts, and handling sessions. In addition, students visit the many commercial galleries, artists' studios and museums available in London. Such knowledge prepares students for a variety of careers in the art world.
