Important Information

Whilst the University will make every effort to offer the modules listed, changes may sometimes be made arising from the annual monitoring and review of modules. Where this activity leads to significant change to a programme and modules, the University will endeavour to consult with affected students. The University may not be able to offer a module for reasons outside of its control, such as the illness of a member of staff. Availability of optional modules may be restricted owing to timetabling, lack of demand, or limited places. Where this is the case, you will be asked to make alternative module choices and you will be supported during this process.

This course equips students with excellent opportunities to develop not only their academic skills and interests but also their professionalism, especially in the museum and heritage sectors. The course enables students to develop – whether via classroom discussions or on-site activities – a productive and enriching engagement with important areas of cultural, institutional, and intellectual practice. The levels of experience, understanding, and insight ascertained throughout the course by successful students will be respected by museum professionals and academics alike.
