Art Market & Appraisal (Professional Practice) MA: Course features

What this course offers you

  • MA Art Market & Appraisal provides with you an entry point into a professional career in the art business industry. It prepares you for work in very different areas of the art market from becoming a professional appraiser, to working for a cutting-edge commercial gallery, to starting up your own business. It is the only art and antiques course worldwide accredited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
  • The course also fosters a strong research environment. The dissertation allows you to further focus on an area of particular interest and gain valuable research skills which could also lead to further postgraduate research within the nurturing environment of the Kingston School of Art Research Institute.
  • The class room environment fosters an art school creative approach to teaching with a focus on group work, peer feedback, seminars and discussions. It also offers shared modules with other postgraduate courses in the faculty and support peer learning.
  • You have the chance to undertake site visits, including an overseas study trip, to supplement your learning (read more in the Links with business and industry section).
  • You can also take advantage of the University's on-site galleries (read more in the Facilities section).
  • Many members of staff are research active or professional practitioners, which keeps your learning cutting-edge (read more in the Research areas section).

  • The taught module in professional practice aims to hone your professional skills and underpins the academic modules. This offers you the opportunity to develop an area of interest or further specialise in your existing area. You will be supported by leading practitioners in the field.
  • Alongside your academic studies, you improve your skills in:
    • problem solving and organisation;
    • data collation, review and synopsis;
    • communication (oral, written and electronic);
    • time management;
