Master’s degree: Master in Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Heritage (MA)
After completing the fulltime two-year Master’s programme, students receive a Master’s degree, as they are knowledgeable about issues in conservation and restoration of cultural heritage. However, to become a fully trained conservator, one should complete the fulltime two-year Post-Master’s programme, including internships.
The Master’s degree in Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Heritage in one of the nine specialisations, or the related track Technical Art History, is legally recognised and allows for the title Master of Arts (MA).
After acquiring the Master’s degree the graduate has completed a general academic training in both conservation theory and scientific research applied to the field of cultural heritage and possesses a basic knowledge of conservation and restoration.
Following successful completion of the MA Degree in Conservation and Restoration, the Master graduate can apply for the two-year Post-Master’s programme in order to become a certified conservator-restorer.
Post-Master certificate: Professional Doctorate in Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Heritage
After successful completion of the Post-Master’s programme, the conservator-restorer in training is awarded the certificate: Professional Doctorate in Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Heritage, allowing the title PdRes.
With this certificate the qualified conservator-restorer is equipped to enter the professional field.
