Cancellation of PGCert and PGDip in History of the Book, 2020/21

We have considered carefully how the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic will impact our ability to run our degrees.

After weighing up all options, we have reluctantly reached the conclusion that we are unable to deliver this programme to a new cohort of students in the 2020/21 academic year. This has been a difficult decision to take in the most challenging of circumstances. Our primary concern has been to ensure that we are in a position to deliver a high-quality educational experience which meets the expectations of students and delivers the learning outcomes for the programme. We will reopen entrance onto the programme for the 2021-22 academic year. You might also be interested in pursuing courses for credit on the London Rare Books School.

Please do check back for updates on our 2021/22 intake.
