The University of East Anglia:

The University is located on a distinctive and attractive campus that provides top quality academic, social and cultural facilities to over 15,000 students. We are ranked in the top one per cent of universities in the world, as a Top 20 university in The Guardian University Guide (2014) and the Times Good University Guide (2014), and have a tradition of producing creative and innovative research both within and across disciplines.

The School of World Art Studies and Museology is one of the few departments in the UK that teaches cultural heritage, museum studies, and art history ‘under one roof’ – and the only one based inside an art gallery, the Norman Foster-designed Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts (SCVA). The School and University are consistently ranked in the top 10 in the UK for student satisfaction, and in the latest RAE, the School was rated first for internationally-recognised work, and joint third overall. Its academic staff are researchers with established reputations who produce some of the most cutting-edge and internationally-recognised research in a range of disciplines – art history, archaeology, anthropology, cultural heritage, and museum studies.

Our MA degrees offer unique opportunities to study visual culture from the ancient world to contemporary global art, and to explore the role of heritage and museum institutions in conjunction with broader issues of artistic practice and inter-cultural experience. Teaching on all the degrees takes place in small groups, with regular opportunities for individual supervision. Students develop critical skills in research, analytical thinking and communication, which helps prepare them for either a higher research degree or for a career in the visual arts, museum, or heritage sectors.

How to Apply for a Scholarship:

Please indicate on your application form that you wish to be considered for an MA Scholarship. Short-listed candidates will be asked to submit an essay and/or dissertation demonstrating excellent research and writing skills, critical thinking, intellectual curiosity and outstanding potential.
