Our Masters in Stained Glass Conservation and Heritage Management will give you practical experience with up-to-date conservation techniques, and an opportunity to work with leading conservation studios, museums and heritage institutions in Britain, Europe and the United States.

The course will provide you with invaluable work experience, and networks for your future career.

You'll train for a variety of employment in stained glass conservation, cultural heritage management, arts administration, museums, and the administration of historic buildings. You'll combine practical work with intensive seminar study to investigate the key issues in approaches to conservation and heritage. The programme will also prepare you for a higher research degree.

Every other year, you'll have the chance to join a European study tour, visiting major stained glass sites, and exploring leading conservation practices.
