Method of delivery:
The programmes offered are vocational in nature and entail both theoretical lectures delivered in classes as well as practical elements that are delivered in laboratories and workshops, as the module requirements dictate. Each module or unit entails a number of in person and/or online contact learning hours that are delivered by the lecturer or tutor. Access to all resources is provided to all registered students. These include study resources in paper or electronic format through the Library and Resource Centre. Students may however be required to provide consumable material for use during practical sessions and projects unless these are explicitly provided by the College.

All units of study are assessed throughout the academic year through continuous assessment using a variety of tools. Coursework tasks are exclusively based on the Learning Outcomes and Grading Criteria as prescribed in the course specification. The Learning Outcomes and Grading Criteria are communicated to the student via the coursework documentation.
The method of assessment shall reflect the Level, credit points (ECTS) and the schedule of time-tabled/non-timetabled hours of learning of each study unit. A variety of assessment instruments, not solely Time Constrained Assignments/Exams, are used to gather and interpret evidence of Student competence toward pre-established grading criteria that are aligned to the learning outcomes of each unit of the programme of study.
Grading criteria are assessed through a number of tasks, each task being assigned a number of marks. The number of grading criteria is included in the respective Programme Specification.
The distribution of marks and assessment mode depends on the nature and objectives of the unit in question. Coursework shall normally be completed during the semester in which the Unit is delivered. Time-constrained assignments (exams) may be held between 8 am and 8 pm during the delivery period of a Unit, or at the end of the semester in which the Unit is completed. The dates are notified and published on the Institute notice boards or through other means of communication.

This part-time postgraduate course in conservation-restoration studies provides a former graduate in conservation-restoration studies with the opportunity to obtain specialist knowledge, skills and competences in conservation-restoration in a particular area of studies on offer. While the programme offers some units which are common to all participants, other units focus on a specific area. During the five semesters, which include practice-led projects of the complexity commensurate to such a level of professional formation, the learner will complete formal education in conservation-restoration according to national and international standards. Moreover, through the dissertation project of choice the learner will engage in specialist research that contributes to the sector in a particular area of conservation-restoration.
