The Institute of Conservation at the University of Applied Arts Vienna is currently launching a new study program—Cultural Heritage Conservation and Management—together with Silpakorn University International College in Bangkok/Thailand, which is now open for application.

The Joint Master program focuses on international project work, project- and site management, and the conservation of the cultural property and world heritage (with a focus on South-East Asia). Transcultural and interdisciplinary teaching formats, as well as stays in Asia, enable students to learn from and with each other.

Admission requirements:
The advanced three-semester Master’s program is aimed at graduates in the field of restoration and conservation who already hold a diploma or equivalent degree (MA, Dipl.-Rest., seven semester BA) in this field. Good knowledge of English is required, as all classes are held in English. Duration of the Programme: three semesters. Joint Degree: MA (Master of Arts)

Graduates of this program are equipped with:
Knowledge of relevant aspects of Asian culture and history; profound understanding of the international professional field of conservation and restoration, including relevant international organizations and networks; transcultural communication and collaboration skills; didactic and teaching skills to deliver basic conservation training to diverse groups of international students; competence in communication and presentation; advanced project (and site) management skills; their own professional networks based on practical collaboration experiences during the Master program.

How to apply? The admission procedure consists of two phases:

First phase: written application (in English). Curriculum Vitae/CV, including a list of publications if available; portfolio of recent works in conservation (up to 15 work samples of practical conservation, including one complete documentation of a conservation project); motivation letter, in which applicants outline their professional experience in conservation-restoration, preservation, and protection of cultural heritage, motivation, and expectations for applying for the program; documents, including copy of valid passport, copies of education certificates or degrees, and evidence of English language proficiency; the application documents are to be sent as one PDF document to chcm [​at​] before the expiry of the submission deadline. Second phase: personal interview. Pre-selected applicants are invited to an interview.
