Bursaries for conservation diploma

Historic Environment Scotland

Historic Environment Scotland has developed a unique diploma in consultation with heritage experts to meet the growing demand for conservation skills across the heritage sector.

The advanced professional diploma in technical building conservation will prepare you for a wide range of specialist careers in the heritage sector. New graduates, emerging professionals and existing practitioners can all benefit from the opportunity to broaden their expertise.

The programme aims to give you a wide spectrum of knowledge and skills in practical building conservation techniques, backed up by a thorough understanding of Scottish architectural and construction traditions. You will also study current issues and leading technical developments, and ground your new knowledge in today’s conservation principles and best practice.

Two full-time and two part-time bursary places to UK/EU students for the academic year starting on 21 August 2017. 

The full-time grant will cover all tuition fees and course costs for the complete four-unit diploma programme, spanning thirty-three weeks from August to May. The two part-time grants will meet the cost of undertaking all the modules of one SQA-certified unit within a single academic year. These bursaries are available to all applicants and will be distributed according to merit.

If you would like to apply for a bursary, you must be able to demonstrate outstanding potential, dedication to your studies and a commitment to a future career in the conservation sector. You should provide evidence of your past academic achievements and related work experience, along with references from current or past tutors and colleagues.

For further information on the bursary opportunities contact Gordon Urquhart, the course manager on 07583 160080 or at gordon.urquhart@hes.scot.
