We are delighted that the course for 2024 will be ‘Conservation and Restoration of Metal’, focusing on recent advances in metal conservation, and will close for applications on 14 March 2024.

You can find out more about the course and how to apply here.

Due to funding by partners involved with the Palace Museum, Beijing, participation in the programme is provided on exceptionally generous terms – with applicants from beyond mainland China receiving support to cover flights and accommodation as well as training costs. This means that conservation professionals from a variety of developing countries and economic means can benefit from an immersive professional and cultural learning experience.

Courses for 2024 and beyond will be developed in English and will include in-person as well as online lecture programmes, case studies, practical sessions, networking, presentations, and site visits with participants benefiting from the rich collections, resources and expertise of the Palace Museum.
