The one-year Preparatory Programme is designed specifically to prepare you to commence the MSc in Conservation of Decorative Architectural Surfaces the following year. If you are a student coming from a humanities background, then you will have the opportunity to familiarise yourself with science-based topics (20 ECTS), and conversely, if you are coming from a science background, then you will also have the opportunity to familiarise yourself with arts-based subjects (20 ECTS). During the same year, other topics to be covered by all participants (40 ECTS) include documentation for conservation, research methods and traditional materials and technology. Work-in-progress seminars and the development of practical and manual skills will also be given great importance during this preparatory year.
As a graduate from this preparatory course, you will have the opportunity to enrol in one of the Master of Architecture postgraduate courses that we offer, that will help you specialise and reach the career that you are interested in.
