The Summer Study program offers intensive four-week 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. Courses are offered over two sessions and students may attend both. Each course meets four days a week, morning and afternoons, for four weeks.
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.
Courses are validated by The University of Manchester. Students completing one full-time course are awarded 20 University of Manchester undergraduate credits.
Session I: 31 May-24 June, 2016
