Access and Widening Participation



Every year, UCL hosts a range of subject-specific Masterclasses.

History of Art - Studying History of Art at UCL: Is it all Old Masters? - Wednesday 8th July 2020.

Images surround us, in every aspect of our physical and digital life. As a society, we are constantly making images. But how do images make us? How do they shape society, or influence our everyday lives? And how are images, whether a work of art or a music video, produced and used? In this Masterclass, you will work with members of the History of Art Department at UCL to discover how images make meaning and influence ways of seeing. Together, we will consider the work of the art historian and their role in the world today. The session will also introduce the many career paths open to art historians, from working in museums and galleries, to publishing, editing, and working for NGOs, and will offer subject-specific admissions guidance.

This session is being held online on Wednesday 8th July 2020 from 11:00am - 12:00pm. 

In light of the Covid-19 coronavirus outbreak, we are sadly cancelling all Masterclasses at UCL that were due to be held in April and May. We are looking at alternative ways to run them. If you have already submitted an application to the Masterclasses, we will be in touch with more information when possible, via the email you provided. We will also update this webpage with more information later in 2020.
