Program Description:

If you’d like to immerse yourself in the study of Collections and Curating whilst taking full advantage of the depth and breadth of Edinburgh’s outstanding collections and galleries, this exciting new programme is for you.

Drawing on resources and expertise from across the University and city, you will have the opportunity to combine research-focused study with immersion in live projects realised in partnership with leading arts, science and heritage organisations.

The flexible format of the programme has been designed to support a range of interests, from the collection and curation of contemporary art or decorative artefacts right through to anatomical models and biological specimens.

If you have a background in the field - either through previous study in a related discipline or professional experience – and a desire to deepen your knowledge while expanding your vocational skills and networks, our programme offers an ideal balance.

Collections and Curating Practices is delivered in partnership with National Museums Scotland, the National Library of Scotland, the National Galleries of Scotland, Talbot Rice Gallery, The Fruitmarket Gallery, and the University of Edinburgh's own Special Collections.
