The University of Birmingham has been ranked 8th in the UK and 60th in the world for post-qualification employability in the latest global survey of universities commissioned by the International Herald Tribune.
Your degree will provide excellent preparation for employment and this will be further enhanced by the employability skills training offered through the College of Arts and Law Graduate School.
Over the last five years 100% of History of Art postgraduates have been in work and/or further study six months after graduation using transferable skills gained in their degree. Many of our postgraduates have gone on to choose jobs relating to gallery and museum curatorship, management and research, while others have moved on to further postgraduate study to pursue a career in academia. That’s why, in addition to the variety of generic skills training that is offered across the university, we also offer students on our research programmes training in the attribution of paintings and drawings, the cataloguings of collections, acquisitions for collections, and the work of commercial galleries and salesrooms.
