Course content

This is a design based career conversion/ development course, for anyone with a passion for landscape architecture, but a first degree in any other subject. It is fully accredited by the Landscape Institute.

Our 'conversion' postgraduate diploma does lead to employment in landscape offices, but you will need to return to study, and take a Masters in Professional Landscape Architecture to gain full UK Licentiate status, giving entry to the Landscape Institute Pathway to Chartership. You might also consider applying for the Masters in Professional Landscape Architecture (with Conversion) - our 'straight through' to Licentiate status programme.

We will seek to enhance your existing skills and knowledge, including developing:

  • your drawing, modelling and software skills;
  • your understanding of design, including planting design; and
  • knowledge across the wide scope of landscape concerns and practice.

We will give you the skills to explore your interests and find your direction within landscape architecture.
