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.
We are considering the possibility of opening up the modules from the master's program for occasional students. At the moment this is not possible as we have to be selective given high student demand. In addition, we are looking into the possibility of scheduling lectures in the evening for part-time students. More information will follow shortly.
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.
