Months of entry
This groundbreaking programme is London-based and directed by the art historian Michael Prodger and the critic and biographer Martin Gayford. The course will be supplemented by a series of ten guest seminars presented by an internationally distinguished group of art historians, artists and gallerists.
The seminars will be held at the Savile Club, 69 Brook Street, Mayfair, London W1K 4ER.
Each seminar (approximately 70 minutes, beginning at 18:30) is followed by a post-seminar dinner in a private room, for those who wish to attend, where there will be an opportunity to continue the seminar discussion in an informal environment. The cost of the post-seminar dinners is included in the tuition fees.
For those who wishing to attend the evening research seminar programme, but unable to devote the time to research, there is the option of becoming an Associate Student. This status will enable the student to attend the ten research seminars and dinners and to take a full part in the seminar and dinner discussions, but does not require the submission of written work. Associate Students are not registered for, and do not receive, the MA degree.
