Definition of the field of studies

The degree programme is aimed at graduates of conservation and restoration study programmes (MA,, Dipl.-Rest.) who intend to develop and refine their skills by gaining hands-on experience in international conservation project work, in teaching and didactics, in project and site management, and in the preservation of cultural heritage as well as world heritage. To achieve this, the programme takes an innovative, transcultural, and interdisciplinary approach.


The joint master's programme comprises study phases at the University of Applied Arts Vienna and Silpakorn University International College in Bangkok. Students of the University of Applied Arts Vienna will spend their first two semesters in Vienna. During the first semester they will take courses in Asian cultural heritage, transcultural communication and collaboration, and they will prepare materials for the conservation teaching. Within this practice-oriented format students will take on the role of facilitators and guide their colleagues from Silpakorn University through the work process of conservation. The second semester includes introductions to sites of religious practice, reflections on transcultural collaboration and advanced courses in preventive conservation. In the third semester Silpakorn and University of Applied Arts Vienna students will spend a joint study phase in Bangkok focusing on courses and workshops in cultural heritage management, communication practice, and Asian art and culture, concluding this phase with another conservation teaching workshop. Students are free to choose whether to prepare their master's thesis in Bangkok or Vienna.
