    The University of Essex is one of the UK's leading academic institutions, ranked ninth nationally for research excellence following the most recent Research Assessment Exercise (RAE).

    On our MA Gallery Studies with Dissertation, you cover all the historical, theoretical and practical materials included in our MA Gallery Studies and Critical Curating but replace your exhibition project with a dissertation.

    Many of our graduates have progressed successfully to further research and an academic career.
    Former art history students go on to work in museums and galleries in London and throughout the world. Other employment sectors include publishing and advertising, or senior management positions in a wide range of businesses.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.


    Program requirements

    Upper second class honours degree, or equivalent, in relevant subject area. English Language Requirements IELTS band: 6.5 IMPORTANT NOTE: Since April 2014 the ETS tests (including TOEFL and TOEIC) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.

    For home and EU students your main source of funding will be government loans, as well as University bursaries and scholarships.

    While international students may be eligible for some scholarships, as well as additional funding from charities and trusts, it is imperative that you do not travel to the UK or begin your studies without ensuring you have enough money to cover all fees and living expenses. It is virtually impossible to make arrangements for financial support once you have left your home country, while the immigration authorities are unlikely to allow you UK entry unless you have evidence that you can cover the costs of your study.
