About Art History Link-Up:

Art History Link-Up provides free Art History courses for sixth form state school students in museums and galleries. We feel that increasing the opportunities to learn about art history is important. Our programmes offer benefits to a diverse range of students who might not otherwise have access to them: enjoyment and learning related to the arts, cross-curricular connections, an additional qualification, and enhanced skills and career development. After the course, students often choose to pursue the subject at university and/or a career in the arts, keeping the subject and sector alive, diverse and vibrant.

Art History Link-Up was established during the 2016/17 academic year. Our first scheme ‘Art History for Everyone’ offers students a taught Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) – equivalent to up to half an A level in UCAS points – alongside two modules of the new A Level Art History course. It is structured around examples of art and architecture which can be experienced and studied at first-hand in public collections.

Art History Link-Up is also in the early stages of developing a new ‘Visual Culture Diploma’, an accredited award open to students nationwide. A pilot will run in partnership with two schools from September.
