    SCHEDULE 

    • Spring 2021: The program begins on January 11, 2021, with the first six weeks delivered online. This is to ensure the safety of students and staff and to provide flexibility around student travel and relocation arrangements. These first six weeks will include a virtual orientation, our signature Navigating the Art World course, initial teaching of program-specific units, student services, and extracurricular events. It is not essential to be in London during this period and we will support students in building their academic and social community remotely. Starting March 1, 2021, we plan to introduce an in-person program supplemented by virtual interactions as required. This will include on-site, socially distanced classes in our Bedford Square campus and visits throughout London, with some larger sessions delivered online. As public health advice allows, we plan to increase the in-person teaching throughout the spring, continuing into the “electives” period beginning on April 26, and throughout the summer and remainder of the program.

    • Summer 2021: Students complete their on-campus studies by August 13, 2021.

    • Fall 2021: The dissertation is to be completed by December 2021.
