Sotheby’s Institute of Art offers a unique academic approach to studying the global art market. In addition to rigorous core curricula, which introduce students to key concepts and builds foundational knowledge, Sotheby’s Institute also provides exposure to specialized topics that are central to the history and ongoing development of the international art world.
The Institute has led the way in research and education in emerging fields.
We have a career services office at both London and New York campuses, where staff can assist students to prepare for the job market and provide career advice.
Although the Institute does not arrange accommodation on behalf of students, we do have a comprehensive accommodation list that we give to students once they have registered.
This list provides a broad range of options to choose from - from flats (apartments) to bed-sits (studios). Most students choose the option of renting a flat whilst in London.
You can usually find a flat or room for a fixed short-term period, e.g. six months. It is also common to find fully furnished flats which can include linens, kitchen ware, etc. As with most large cities rent prices are extremely variable depending on the area and amenities.
Sotheby’s Institute of Art has campuses in London, New York and Los Angeles with online courses accessible from anywhere in the world reflecting its commitment to the globalization of art and its markets.
