Several changes have been made to the study plan of this master's degree. Please check the information on the latest version here: Archival Studies and Information Governance
This master's degree provides well-rounded training in archival studies and records management that equips students to work in both the private and the public sector, with historical and administrative documents on traditional and electronic media.
Students learn to apply archival techniques using the latest technologies, both to manage archives and to design and manage records management systems in organisations, while at the same time developing critical awareness, the ethical values of professional archivists and a capacity for innovation.
The programme is the result of adapting an earlier advanced vocational training diploma to the European Higher Education Area and adding contributions from the business and professional sector, to meet the demand for training in this expanding area.
Our school has collaboration agreements in place with a large number of institutions and companies, which means salaried placements are available from year one. Over 95% of graduates go on to find employment.
