The Warburg Institute is one of the world’s leading centres for the study of the interaction of ideas, images, culture and society. It is dedicated to the survival and transmission of culture across time and space, with special emphasis on the afterlife of antiquity.

We run postgraduate taught programmes in Cultural, Intellectual and Visual History (MA and Postgraduate Certificate), in Art History, Curatorship and Renaissance Culture (MA), and in Art History and Renaissance Culture (Postgraduate Certificate), and we encourage MPhil and PhD applicants in the many areas of research the Institute supports. The resources of the Warburg are especially geared to students interested in interdisciplinary study.

Why study with us?
  • Students at the Warburg Institute have access to the best resources for academic study of the humanities in London:
  • Access to the Institute's collections and open-stack Library, which is classified as one of the ‘20 Libraries that changed the world’, and unparalleled staff contact hours.
  • Training in languages that are essential for research in our fields of study.
  • Extensive opportunities for networking with an international community of scholars including academic staff, fellows, project researchers and Library readers, which significantly enriches the learning experience and can inform the development of future careers.
  • Access to a wealth of additional academic and cultural resources within the School of Advanced Study, the wider University of London and the Bloomsbury “Knowledge Quarter”.

Investing in your future

Many Warburg MA alumni have gone on to pursue PhD study at the Institute or other universities across the globe. MA and PhD graduates have also secured positions at cultural institutions such as Sotheby’s, Arts Council England, the National Gallery, the V&A, and the Southbank Centre.
