Widening Participation Activities at The Courtauld

At The Courtauld, we are on a mission to make Art History accessible to all.

If you are a student and you want to get an insight into what Art History is all about, we run many exciting programmes throughout the year, so you can participate in lectures, courses and discussions and even presentations of your own, so you can get a flavour for what Art History is like to study, and learn about where it could take you in your career.

If you have a passion for art, are naturally inquisitive, and love looking closely at the things you see in the world around you, Art History might just be for you, and we would love to hear from you!

Have a look at our links below to see how you can get involved:

Applying to the BA History of Art

We are committed to allowing all our applicants to demonstrate their potential, and show themselves to their best advantage, regardless of socio-economic background.

If you are concerned you might not reach our typical ABB offer, please be aware we are able to lower this offer to groups who are under-represented in Higher Education, provided that you can demonstrate that you have the potential and the passion to thrive with us at The Courtauld.

It is also important to know that we do not expect you to have been studying Art History A Level in order to be considered here. Art History is multi-disciplinary, and draws on skills from many other subjects, such as History, English Literature, Religious Studies, Philosophy and Sociology.

Many of our undergraduate students have never studied Art History before. If you have a passion for art, close looking, and discussing what you see, both with others and in writing, Art History could be a great fit, and we would love to receive an application from you.

If you have any queries on the application process, please contact our admissions team at ugadmissions@courtauld.ac.uk
