Masters of Light: Rembrandt and Vermeer in Focus

Our Masters of Light: Rembrandt and Vermeer in Focus short course examines the work of Rembrandt and Vermeer in the light of recent research, such as that undertaken by the Rembrandt Research Project. This is an opportunity for a detailed reappraisal of the work of two of the most important artists of the Dutch Golden Age. Their careers will be explored in the context of seventeenth-century Dutch culture as a whole. The course will include two gallery visits.

    Entry requirements

    Most of our short courses have no formal entry requirements and are open to all students. You may have to fulfil specific prerequisites for some intermediate-level or advanced-level courses, but these will be specified where relevant.

    Visa requirements

    If you are not from the European Economic Area (EEA) and/or Switzerland and you are coming to study in the UK, you may need to apply for a visa.

    The visa you apply for varies according to the length of your course:

    • Courses of more than six months' duration.
    • Courses of less than six months' duration.
    • Pre-sessional English language courses.

    International students who require a Tier 4 visa should apply for our full-time courses (with the exception of modular enrolment certificates of higher education and graduate certificates), as these qualify for Tier 4 sponsorship. If you are living in the UK on a Tier 4 visa, you will not be eligible to enrol as a student on Birkbeck's part-time courses (with the exception of some modules).

    For full information, read our visa information for international students page.
