Conservation Studies

This is a course for graduates from a non-conservation background. It enables them to progress on to the Master's in Conservation of Historic Objects to complete their conservation training. Alternatively, it provides a platform from which students can pursue a career in the heritage industry.

Entry requirements

A Honours degree in any discipline or equivalent prior experience. For international students: IELTS band 6.0 or above with no less than 5.5 in each band score.

Course modules

Modules include: conservation theory; understanding objects; conservation skills; conservation practical.

Assessment methods

Students are assessed at key points throughout the year. A portfolio of drawings and photographs are required as part of the conservation skills module, which includes 2 practical assessments. The conservation theory module is assessed by a presentation and phase test. Other modules require documentation in the form of notebooks, essays and reports, and an assessment of the treatments applies to historic objects.

Sponsorship information

All UK or EU students who hold a First or Upper Second Class Honours degree from another institution will receive a 20% reduction in tuition fees when they enrol on a University of Lincoln taught Master's programme. The scholarship is offset against tuition fee payments due for each academic year of study. Please note that the Master of Architecture (Part Two) and MBA programmes are exceptions to this scheme, as other scholarships are in place for those courses.
