Partial studentships for the MA in Decorative Arts and Historic Interiors

Applications are invited for partial studentships for the MA in Decorative Arts and Historic Interiors at the University of Buckingham to start in September 2013.

This unique MA focuses on the development of interiors and decorative arts in England and France in the long eighteenth century (c.1660-c.1830) and their subsequent rediscovery and reinterpretation in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

The course is taught by the University of Buckingham, with contributions from leading international experts and curatorial staff from the Wallace Collection. A key element is the emphasis on the first-hand study of decorative arts within the context of historic interiors. There are frequent trips to collections in and around London, as well as a study week in Paris.

The programme provides a vocational and academic training which has enabled students to pursue careers in museums and galleries, auction houses, interior design, and institutions such as the National Trust and English Heritage.

Eligibility: applicants should hold a first or second class honours degree.

Informal enquiries can be made to Linda Waterman, the University of Buckingham, Hunter Street, Buckingham, MK18 1EG, (tel: +44 (0) 1280 820120; email:
