Course content

Landscape architects create and manage the landscapes we live and work in. They plan and design places. This ranges from the private garden to the urban square and the city region.

The Master of Landscape Architecture is a two-year full-time postgraduate conversion course. It's suitable for:

  • graduates in other disciplines who wish to qualify and work as professional landscape architects
  • those with international landscape qualifications who wish to pursue professional studies in the UK.

Whether or not you have a background in design, you'll develop the skills needed for contemporary practice.

You'll gain a practical understanding of the theories, methods and techniques employed in landscape architecture. Most of what you learn is applicable worldwide.

The Master of Landscape Architecture has candidate accreditation from the Landscape Institute (LI). We are applying for full LI Accreditation status upon graduation of the first cohort.
