Who is this course for?

Whether you are already working in the heritage sector or are thinking about working in heritage, this MA will provide you with a deep understanding of the history, theory, practice and practicalities of heritage management.

The programme will give future heritage sector leaders the skills needed to address the managerial, intellectual, cultural, social and technical challenges of maintaining and sharing heritage sites. 

 

Heritage Scholarships

Historic Royal Palaces wants to make careers in our sector more accessible to people from Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities to help bring our palaces and stories to a broader demographic and make them accessible and relevant for all.  In order to achieve this, Historic Royal Palaces is pleased to support two scholarships for students from BAME groups to study part time on the new MA in Heritage Management, jointly established with Queen Mary’s University London, during the 2018/19 and 2019/20 academic years.

The scholarships will cover fees and a living allowance of £11,681 per annum. 

For the duration of the MA, and alongside the course, those holding the scholarships will work part time within the Curators’ team at Historic Royal Palaces for an additional two days a week. 

If you would like to be considered for one of these scholarships, please state your intention to apply on the MA application form. Further details of how to apply for the scholarships will be sent to applicants in June 2018. The deadline for applications will be Friday 6th July at 12 noon. More information about the scholarships can be found here.
