The MSc in Conservation Studies at UCL Qatar is a two-year course that covers a wide range of materials, from objects (metals, glass, stone, ceramics) to textiles and contemporary art, plus archaeological sites and buildings. Students will be trained in the theory and principals of conservation and restoration and will be able to specialise in a material of their choice in the second year. There is a large practical element to the course, including placements at museums, sites and cultural heritage organisations across the Middle East region and further afield, in order to give students the transferrable skills required to assume a leading position as a conservator or within the cultural heritage sector. There is an increasing need for qualified conservators in Qatar and the Gulf region and graduates are expected to be highly sought. Details of our MSc Conservation Studies degree programme can be found online at www.ucl.ac.uk/qatar/study.
