Woman delivering a lecture to students

The Courtauld has a teaching staff of more than 40 world-class scholars, covering a broad spectrum of the history of art and architecture. While they have a wide range of approaches to the study of the history of art, all share a commitment to the close examination of individual works. The teaching of the BA programme also helps students to engage with broader issues of theory and methodology. All students are allocated a Personal Tutor to assist them throughout the degree, and who usually provides the first point of contact for academic and personal issues. Students also have access to an Academic Support Tutor who can help with time management, research skills, reading techniques and other study skills. Further help with essay writing is provided by two Royal Literary Fund Fellows. The Fellows are published authors who offer students help with all aspects of writing, and do so in a friendly and confidential fashion.
