Master of the Conservation of Easel Paintings is a three-year course awarded by the University of Cambridge.

The course is open to students with a first degree in fine art, art history or the natural sciences. Candidates with other degrees will be considered if they can demonstrate they have a particular aptitude for the field.

After graduation, students are expected to undertake at least a further year of study or internship in a conservation department in Britain or abroad to gain experience of different approaches to conservation problems.
