You can enrol in the Applied Museum and Heritage Studies programme as either a full-time or part-time student. The full-time programme lasts a year. The part-time programme can be completed in two years. Full-time and part-time students take the same modules and as much as possible, will work in mixed groups, but in a slightly different order. The academic year starts on 1 September. We sometimes hold introduction days beforehand.

Lectures are held on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. A typical week will start on Monday at 09:30 with a reflection on the week before and a look forward at the week ahead. This will be followed by a seminar (10:00–12:00) and a close reading or research session (13:00–15:00). On Wednesday morning (10:00–12:00), a heritage professional will give a guest lecture, and in the afternoon, there will be a hands-on workshop on professional tools and instruments. Fridays are mostly reserved for excursions and field visits, which will take place on average every other week.

In the first year, part-time students will have classes on Mondays and the occasional Friday. In the second year, they will have classes on Wednesdays and the occasional Friday.
