Application takes five minutes, online: here with more information – https://arthistorylinkup.org/apply/student-application/ 

Pre-pandemic, our courses were based at the National Gallery and Wallace Collection however pivoted online when the galleries closed as a result of the pandemic in March 2020, and have continued online with great success. We aim to pivot to a hybrid model in due course – government health and gallery regulations allowing – with some students based in the galleries, as in previous years, and others remaining entirely online, however we hope with visits to London galleries on occasion, pandemic permitting.

For the time being, classes take place on Zoom, with sessions structured around whole class teaching, break out room activities with specialist teaching assistants, and use of interactive resources shared via our Google Classroom and Miro. Students are further supported by our Student Liaison Officers and weekly homework clubs led by our Lead Teaching Assistant.

Students are taught by specialist and qualified teachers, offered study support and specialist EPQ mentoring, access to careers and FE/HE advice, relevant work experience opportunities, and membership of the AHLU alumni network. Courses will continue to be structured around works of art that are on view in our great public collections, with expert visitors to class from a wide range of specialist organisations. Exam entry is organised by Art History Link-Up.

Priority is given to students from Widening Participation backgrounds and who have an especial aptitude for the course.

The application deadline is 5pm on Friday 10th September! Please contact students@arthistorylinkup.org with queries. Class will start on Saturday 25th September, from 10am-12.30pm (Wallace Collection) or 1.30-4pm (National Gallery).
