1. PGCert Antiquities & Art Crime, Online Degree, University of Glasgow

You’ve heard about the Free Online Course that we’re developing via Future Learn, well this is a 3 course, Masters-level postgraduate certification offered online by the university of Glasgow and taught by me. This is for students who want more: real instruction, real discussion, full courses.

International students welcome; you can take one course or all three for the the PGCert; I’m happy to sign paperwork that transfers the credits; you can ‘top up’ to a full masters by becoming an in-person Glasgow student.
