4 year course on conservation in Amsterdam

Do you have plans studying conservation? Consider studying in the
smallest big town of Europe: Amsterdam, a monument in itself, a town
filled with world class museums, libraries and archives.

At the Netherlands Institute for Cultural Heritage (ICN), an
amalgamation of the Central Research Laboratory for Objects of Art
and Science, the State Training School for Conservators and the
Netherlands Office for Fine Art, a four year diploma course on
conservation will begin in september 1999. Subjects offered are:

    *   book and paper conservation
    *   glass and ceramics conservation
    *   furniture conservation
    *   metal conservation
    *   textile conservation

Minimum requirements are:

    *   minimum 18 years old
    *   high school diploma with chemistry (or equivalent)
    *   good manual skills

Since most of the lessons will be in Dutch you are required to
understand the Dutch language in written and spoken form. All
necessary theoretical subjects will be taught alongside intensive
practical work in an approximate  50-50 ratio.  The ICN offers
in-house workshops, a large library dedicated to conservation and
all related subjects, in-house research facilities, an international
team of teachers and researchers and a location next to three major
museums: the Rijks Museum, the Stedelijk Museum and the van Gogh
