The Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology (GMIT)in Ireland is now offering additional vacant places for the Bachelor of Science Programme in the Conservation and Restoration of Furniture and Wooden Objects. This course is run at the GMIT Letterfrack campus. The training provides students with a thorough understanding of the historical, ethical and aesthetic aspects of furniture conservation and restoration, with an emphasis on developing a high level of practical skill. The three-year full-time course is comprised of six practical and theoretical subjects, such as Traditional Processes, Furniture Materials, Furniture History, Conservation Science, Business and Communication Skills. In the practical training students learn by working on historic furniture under personal instruction by experienced tutors. Further practical and theoretical experience is gained during a work placement, as well as study trips to important furniture collections in Europe. The facilities for the programme include separate conservation/restoration, woodworking and wood turning areas, as well as a scientific laboratory including microscopy and photography facilities. In addition to the specific conservation/restoration equipment, students have access to modern wood working machinery in a dedicated machine hall. The course is accredited by European Credit Transfer System (ECTS) and opens the possibility for further qualification including Bach (Hons.) and Masters’ Degree. Admission of school leavers and mature applicants from Ireland and other countries to the programme is administered through the Central Admissions Office (CAO, www.cao.ie, Link: Vacant Places Application, Course Code GA 948), and is based on a combination of leaving cert points and/or an assessment interview held on the college campus in September. Woodwork experience or conservation/restoration internship is not mandatory requirement for application. A number of additional places are now available on this course. Admission is through the CAO website ‘vacant places’ link or by applying direct to the Admissions Office, GMIT, Dublin Road, Galway.
