Art, Design & Museology (ADM) is a friendly and stimulating place for postgraduate students to study and has a long and distinguished history at the UCL Institute of Education.

At any one time ADM has up to 200 students studying on PGCE, MA, EdD, MPhil, PhD and short courses, who enjoy the benefits of working within purpose-built studios: these include an Apple Mac computer suite, photographic, ceramics and 3D construction facilities. In addition specialist art technicians provide invaluable support throughout a student’s programme of study. The UCL Institute of Education’s central location in the Bloomsbury campus of the University of London gives ADM students access not just to the UCL Institute of Education’s international education library but also to the more extensive art and art historical collections of the libraries at Senate House, Birkbeck College and the School of Oriental and African Studies – all just a 5-minute walk away.

Art, Design & Museology works in close collaboration with artists, arts organisations, galleries and museums (e.g. British Museum, Diversity Art Forum, October Gallery, Photographers’ Gallery, Serpentine Gallery, Victoria & Albert Museum, Whitechapel Art Gallery, Natural History Museum and Science Museum) providing students with opportunities for research. It is important to note that a significant number of former students now work in arts organisations, galleries and museums in London, nationally and internationally.

Art, Design & Museology has a vibrant research culture in which all tutors are research active and lectures, seminars and tutorials are informed by the diversity of their research interests. A programme of research seminars, including presentations from artists and gallery and museum educators, also provides MPhil/PhD students and tutors with an opportunity to present their work-in-progress. These seminars are open to all students (PGCE, MA, EdD, MPhil and PhD) and academic staff both within and outside the UCL Institute of Education.
