University of Glasgow

The University of Glasgow is one of Scotland’s “ancient Universities”. Founded in 1451, it is the fourth oldest University in the English-speaking world. It is a well-respected, research intensive institution with a (very) long history of high quality and innovative scholarship.

Here are some facts and figures about the University.

The University is divided into four Colleges:

And within these college are various Schools which house our research departments. Our learning opportunities in Antiquities Trafficking and Art Crime are “Cross College”, combining research and expertise from both the College of Arts and the College of Social Sciences, and meaning they are inherently multidisciplinary. Whiles students degree programmes are based in a particular school or college, we support and encourage breaking down these barriers to create bespoke learning experiences in these topics.

Antiquities Trafficking and Art Crime at Glasgow

In 2012, the Trafficking Culture Project was founded at Glasgow to study the illicit trafficking of cultural objects using perspectives from criminology, heritage studies, and law. Since then, the project has become a research consortium and we have expanded our learning opportunities in this area across several disciplines and at a variety of levels. We believe that it is important for everyone to be able to learn about these issues and we now offer everything from free online courses to PhD-level supervision, both on-site at Glasgow and through distance learning. We hope you’re able to find the right learning option for your goals.
