Since its founding by Sotheby’s Auction House in 1969, Sotheby’s Institute - London has pioneered the education of arts professionals. The Institute currently offers four Master’s Programs: Art Business, Art Logistics, Contemporary Art, Fine and Decorative Art and Design, Modern and Contemporary Asian Art.

Each program is validated by The University of Manchester, part of the prestigious Russell Group of Universities.

All Master’s programs at Sotheby’s Institute of Art - London are enhanced by a shared core curriculum, Navigating the Art World, that provides a powerful set of professional skills and critical understandings for our students to mobilize at the completion of their degrees.

Navigating the Art World brings students from all areas of study together for a common introduction to current issues in the art world – its structures and organizations, as well as its essential skills and protocols. Site visits, lectures and panels, case studies and workshops provide students with both new information and context, as well as real-world examples and experiences. Navigating the Art World is followed by two core units unique to each program in which students explore their MA subjects in depth.


Found in the heart of Bloomsbury, the London campus is at the center of one of the world’s most important art capitals. The London Institute is part of the ‘larger academy’ of Bedford Square, located next door to premier educational institutions such as the Architectural Association and the Paul Mellon Centre, with the University of London and the British Museum in the neighbouring square. Sotheby’s auction house, the National Gallery, the National Portrait Gallery and the Royal Academy Of Arts‎ are a few minutes’ walk away. The Institute is also close to Mayfair, the traditional center of the London art market, where many dealers and galleries are located.
