Course content

Incorporating the Graduate Diploma conversion, this imaginative course is an important stage in developing your career. You will develop your creative, artistic, technical and intellectual abilities on an educational programme which has been measured by external examiners and the profession as one of the leading courses in the country.

The international employer of tomorrow needs multi-skilled designers who can stand their ground and defend the position of the landscape architect. This positive spirit is developed through engaging studios, group workshops and tailored modules that develop theoretically enriched practice that push the boundaries of concept work and translate ideas into spaces that shape the future.

Each year the course is tested for its quality by the Landscape Institute and our external examiners. Our external examiners have reviewed the course and rated it very highly.
