Found in the heart of Bloomsbury, the London campus is at the center of one of the world’s most important art capitals. The Institute is situated in Bedford Square, built between 1775 and 1783, one of the best preserved Georgian squares in London with a private central garden. We are only a few minutes’ walk from the British Museum, Sotheby’s auction house, the National Gallery, the University of London and the Royal Academy. The Institute is also close to Mayfair, the traditional center of the London art market, where many dealers and galleries are located.
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.
London is a city of traditional and contemporary art museums, private collections and international commercial galleries. Sotheby’s auction house was founded in the city in 1744 and its London offices are now part of a global network encompassing Europe, Asia and America. In London, one of the world’s leading centers of higher education, students can enjoy a wide array of facilities and activities, including international cultural events and a vibrant art scene.
