I'm considering applying for a postgraduate programme in 2021, but as an American, I'm not entirely sure what reputations the uni has. How is the Warburg viewed?

Thanks, I’d never heard of it!
Seems legit, University of London “school of advanced study”
UK’s biggest university ~52000 students, many online (even pre CV-19)

One of the world’s best (idiosyncratic) research libraries.... the Kulturwissenschaftliche Bibliothek Warburg, moved to UK in 1933, for obvious reasons.

As above most people in the UK (and probably outside of the history of art/renaissance studies sphere, unless they happened upon it while searching related topics - as in my case) will probably never have heard of it. But for research in its specialisms I get the impression it's at least equal if not surpassing those and Oxbridge...Courtauld might be better known in "industry" (e.g. for curating/art business roles) perhaps, or equivalently RCA for contemporary art, but that is very much based at surface level fact finding on my part Perhaps see if the list PhD grad placements on their website (or request that info, either directly via email or via a FOI request, although the latter might be refused due to the nature of the data very likely being personally identifying), as that can be illuminating sometimes?
