Course content

Since 2003 the MA Antiques (Distance Learning) course has been inspiring researchers and practitioners; individuals who want to develop a specialised interest in antiques without the necessity of on-campus attendance, and who wish to do so on a part-time basis. Whether as a leisure activity, to follow your aspiration to be an antique dealer, or as recognition of your professional status in antiques, the MA Antiques offers:

  • A postgraduate qualification in antiques with a proven success rate;
  • marketing advantages for your business, and/or your own career development;
  • the opportunity, after the first year, to specialise in a field of your choice;
  • support for students who, after a long period away from formal education, may find postgraduate study daunting at first;
  • encouragement for individuals who may not have formal entry qualifications - experience counts;
  • assessment by 100% coursework in the form of concise project reports or academic papers. So, no examinations, summer school or on campus requirements.
