About this Event

Online open days for our BA (Hons) Conservation: Books & Paper courses take place from autumn to spring. They are a great opportunity to find out more about the course content, meet our teaching team and ask them any questions you may have, learn about our specialist facilities and get a feel for what it’s like to study here.

We run our online open days in small groups so you’ll have the opportunity to find out everything you want to know, and you can expect it to take approximately 30 minutes.

You are also invited to take part in one of our weekly Student Virtual Chats where you can talk to current Art School students and ask about their experiences of studying with us. Register here.

If you have any queries, please contact us at admin@cityandguildsartschool.ac.uk

The Art School has been providing high-quality conservation courses for over 50 years, developing an outstanding reputation within the heritage sector.

Conservation is the meeting-point of science and art – a fascinating blend of state-of-the-art forensics, aesthetics and traditional craft skills. As such, our conservation courses offer hands-on engagement with the craft skills employed in historic manufacturing processes combined with leading-edge scientific analysis and treatment procedures, contemporary conservation practice, humanities and the ethics, laws and regulations of conservation.

The BA (Hons) Conservation: Books & Paper are carefully structured to enable you to progressively develop the knowledge and skills you will need to undertake the conservation of books and paper artefacts such as artworks on paper, manuscripts, parchment, maps and paper-covered globes.

On our courses, you’ll benefit from small class sizes, expert tutors (all leading industry professionals) and specialist lab facilities including state-of-the-art laser technology.

We also offer a broad range of grants & financial assistance to help students fund their education. When you have accepted a place on one of our courses, you can apply for available funding.

Our extensive links with leading museums and private collectors will provide you with high-profile live projects, placements and a professional network. In the last five years, almost 100% of graduates have been employed in conservation within six months of graduation, including an annual funded internship in Venice. Many of our alumni have gone on to work within national museum and gallery conservation departments in senior conservation posts.
