Course description

Start a career in landscape architecture. Join a course that’s been training landscape architects since 1961. You’ll learn by working on live sites, going on study tours abroad and through events with industry partnerships, such as visits to landscape practices and guest lectures.


The study programme is based around lectures, tutorials and student-led research in a studio-based environment. You will develop skills in experimentation, creative thinking and social interaction. The course offers a balanced mix of theory, design work and introduction to professional practice. The course offers opportunities and scope for you to thrive within a stimulating learning environment and to develop and think about personal development within the context of future career options.
