Sotheby’s Institute of Art accepts applications for the Master’s Degree (London & New York), Postgraduate Diploma (London) / Graduate Certificate (New York)
online. The online application
system allows candidates to submit scanned copies of all required documents, with the exception of recommendations. If necessary, transcripts, recommendations and other relevant documents may be submitted separately from the application and at a later date. However, it is preferable that all documents be received prior to an applicant’s interview.
Applications may only be submitted for admission to one campus although applicants may select a first and second programme choice. Applicants wishing to be considered for an alternate campus may request a change of status prior to July 1.
For more information please review our Frequently Asked Questions.
After you Apply
Applicants will receive an email from the admissions team acknowledging receipt of their application within 24 hours. This email will include an update on any documents or required information that may still be outstanding. These should then be sent directly to the campus at which the application was submitted. Interview
After the admissions team has received sufficient documentation, eligible candidates will be contacted for an interview. Admissions Decisions
The admissions committee reviews and processes applications on a “rolling basis.” This means that applications are considered throughout the year as long as space is available. Applicants whose documentation is complete generally receive an admissions decision within two weeks of their interview. Confirmation of Attendance and Deposit
Admissions Committee decisions will be sent by email. A deposit of £500 (London) and $1,000 (New York) is required of accepted applicants and must be returned with the Admissions Reply Form in order to hold a place in the department and campus of choice. Accepted applicants who require additional time to make this decision and deposit must contact the Office of Admissions to request an extension. Visas
Students who require visas will receive visa documentation after they confirm their intention to enroll by returning their reply forms and deposits. Online Welcome Site
Applicants who have confirmed their intention to attend the Institute by returning the Admissions Reply Form and deposit will be given access to the New Students’ Welcome Site. This site will provide an opportunity to meet other entering students and to access important information about accommodations and health care. Reading lists and other academic information will be posted on the site during the summer.
