About

The International Heritage Management by Distance Learning course from University of Birmingham is a well-established and respected programme based on a unique partnership between a leading research University and one of the largest independent museums in the UK, the Ironbridge Gorge Museums Trust.

Overview

For more than 25 years, the International Heritage Management by Distance Learning course from University of Birmingham has provided an advanced qualification in heritage and its management.

Grounded in a deep understanding of the theoretical approaches to heritage and their application, this established programme equips you with the skills needed for both future research into heritage and museums work, conservation and regeneration, the management of historic buildings and landscapes, and cultural tourism. Included within the degree is a study week that directly engages you with issues in the sector through study visits to leading museums and heritage attractions, and offers an opportunity to engage directly with your fellow students and staff.

It offers you the opportunity to engage with a rich and diverse international research community based at the University and researching many aspects of heritage and its management across the world, and the practical experience of the Museum Trust in running heritage attractions.

This programme equips you with the key concepts and skills necessary to a career in the heritage field.
