The University of Cambridge Museums is a consortium of the eight University Museums and the Cambridge University Botanic Garden. Together, we represent the UK’s highest concentration of internationally important collections outside London. With more than five million works of art, artefacts, and specimens, the collections span four and a half billion years.

Looking at Collections is a University of Cambridge Museums online resource designed to support students and teachers with the research and delivery of a range of post 16 subjects. The resource is designed to support students to develop research skills for EPQ and other A-level subjects. It provides various and detailed approaches to researching paintings and objects. Full of step-by-step guidance, images, videos and interviews with specialists of their field, ‘Looking at Collections’ can be used as both a classroom teaching resource and student led research tool. It is also ideal for any student working towards the Extended Project Qualification.

“It was good to clearly see how scientific methods are used by people studying art or architecture, making the link between subjects and careers.” - Liz Hunt, Head of Science, Nicholas Breakspear Catholic School

“I have already used this in an Art Appreciation enrichment session. It was a great way to get students looking as well as layering more information that's not too heavy! The resources worked really well, so many thanks!” - Tim Wynn, Head of History of Art, Hill’s Road Sixth Form College
