Postgraduate Taught Courses
The Graduate Diploma is a concentrated form of the undergraduate degree and gives graduates of other disciplines the opportunity to transfer their skills to the study of history of art.
This unique one-year MA is offered by The Robert H. N. Ho Family Foundation Centre for Buddhist Art and Conservation at The Courtauld. It combines teaching in the key tenets of Buddhism, the history of Buddhist art, and the making and conservation of Buddhist art.

Experience The Courtauld for Yourself
You are warmly invited to attend one our upcoming Open Days at the Courtauld Institute to find out more about our courses.
We treat our students as adults and value their active participation in classes. The Courtauld is not a production line; we will give you the opportunity to be yourself, to hone your interests and discover for yourself what you'd like to research.
The Courtauld was the only History of Art department in the UK to be awarded a top 5* grade in the 2001 Research Assessment Exercise, and was ranked second nationally for History of Art in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise and first for History and History of Art in the Guardian's 2011 University Guide.
