History of Art


Organise a post-offer call with a member of the department

If you'd like to talk to us about what it's like to be a student at UCL History of Art, you can organise a telephone conversation with one of our staff listed below.

Unfortunately, due to coronavirus, we have had to cancel our post-offer open days, but this doesn't mean that you can't get in touch and ask us questions about what it's like to study here. Some of our key academic members of staff are available for you to book calls with in the coming weeks. To book a call, simply follow the links below. 

If you are an overseas offer-holder, please feel free to provide a note when booking to indicate the best way to call you, for example via Skype or Whatsapp – this can be included in the section "Please share anything that will help prepare for our meeting". We will do our best to provide insights and helpful information for overseas offer-holders. 

If you have any problems booking a call or issues with availability, please email our Departmental Manager, Eleanor Day.
