This MA by Research is designed for students who have a clearly-defined research project and wish to develop advanced knowledge in a particular field, without studying for the more extended degree of MPhil/PhD. The MA by Research in Conservation takes the form of supervised individual research, providing the chance to complete a dissertation.
Members of staff in the conservation subject area aim to provide you with the academic support to conduct in-depth research into the topic that interests you. You will have the opportunity to benefit from the School’s research expertise through a supervisory team and have access to a range of analytical equipment and technical expertise.
Strong links exist with the Colleges of Science and Arts and there is interdisciplinary research culture that can facilitate collaboration with colleagues across a wide range of topics.

Internships have included roles in natural history at the Horniman Museum, mechanical objects at Edinburgh Museum and textile conservation for the National Trust at Blickling.
