The Summer Study program offers intensive courses in areas of art business, art history, finance, contemporary art and design. The program is designed for undergraduates, career changers, study abroad participants and those interested in art and cultural history. Summer courses meet mornings and afternoons and are offered over three days, a week, two weeks or four weeks. Participants make take combinations of courses.
These courses offer interesting and compelling insights into the art world and include lectures and seminars led by Sotheby's Institute of Art faculty, international experts and leading practitioners in the field. Visits to major collections in London's museums, auction houses, artists' studios and royal palaces allow each participant to develop a deeper understanding of the art.
The Institute’s Careers Service offers the opportunity for cv reviews and a careers session to enable students to explore professional opportunities in the art world.
Four-week courses are validated by The University of Manchester. Students completing one full-time four-week course are awarded 20 University of Manchester undergraduate credits.
