Our Master’s, Semester and Four-Week Summer programs are all validated by The University of Manchester, one of the largest and most prestigious universities in the U.K.
In London, we offer five Master's Degree programs: Art Business, Contemporary Art, Fine and Decorative Art and Design, Art Logistics, and Modern and Contemporary Asian Art. All MA’s start with an intensive shared unit ‘Navigating the Art World,’ which provides an in-depth introduction to the art world and development of professional and critical skills. In addition, the flexible structure of the Master’s programs allows students further to specialize in their studies, once they have completed the core units of their chosen MA, by choosing two electives from a broad range of expertly led units.
Learn more about the Master's program at the London campus here.
For each of the five Master’s programs a two-semester Postgraduate Diploma is available to students who complete the required coursework for an MA Degree program but who do not wish to write a Master's Degree Dissertation. Learn more about the Postgraduate Diploma at the London campus here.
The Institute offers a number of full-time fifteen-week programs which run both in the Fall and the Spring semester and some of which can be taken on a part-time basis. These programs do not require any previous university qualifications and are designed for students who have a strong vocational or professional interest in a specific subject. They can also provide the necessary foundation for students who lack a formal education in art history and are applying to an MA program at the Institute. Learn more about the Semester Study programs at the London campus here.
Summer Study Programs
The Summer Study programs offer intensive courses in areas of art business, art history, finance, contemporary art and design. The programs are designed for undergraduates, graduates, career changers and all those interested in art and the art world. Full-time courses are offered over two sessions and students have the option to attend both. Learn more about the Summer Study program at the London campus here.
