RCA/V&A Conservation is a programme of postgraduate learning and
research provided jointly by the Royal College of Art and the
Victoria and Albert Museum. The programme works in association with
Imperial College, London, and in collaboration with other museums,
galleries, heritage organisations, and research institutions. We
offer MA, MPhil, and PhD degrees in a wide range of specialist

MA studentships run full-time for two or, in some cases, three
years. Arrangements may also be made to study part-time in
exceptional situations. The specific areas of study for the
forthcoming academic year are listed below. Details are now
