About the Richmond experience
The two Masters degrees in Art History and Visual Culture, and Visual Arts Management and Curating, explore the intercultural issues within the visual arts, preparing graduate students for careers in the arts and creative cultural industries. 

Students are regarded as Junior Research Colleagues, encouraging them to make use of London as a research resource and undertake primary research. 

Internships and networking
A key component of the postgraduate programs is the internship component. Students are encouraged to participate in an internship that will enable them to network and build contacts within the arts world. 

The program uses London as a teaching, learning and research laboratory that offers access to world-class institutions of art, design, film, fashion and craft, as well as leading commercial galleries and auction houses. 

Explore London
Richmond’s Kensington campus is at the heart of the art scene—with easy access to famous museums such as the National Gallery, Tate Modern, Tate Britain, Courtauld and British Museum, and cutting-edge contemporary galleries such as the Hayward, Barbican, Whitechapel and Serpentine. 

Explore Europe
Post-graduate students also have the opportunity to participate in guided trips to Europe, accessing all that a multicultural arts world has to offer, and widening and developing their knowledge and understanding of visual culture from the modern and contemporary to the classics. Recent trips have included to the Venice Biennale, Istanbul and the Glasgow International.
