Course content

This is a design based career conversion/ development course at Masters level, for anyone who has a passion for landscape architecture, but a first degree in any other subject.

It brings together 'conversion' modules of the postgraduate diploma, with modules from the MA taken by those holding an undergraduate landscape degree, combined into 'straight through' programme for direct entry to the UK profession at Licentiate status.

It is fully accredited by the Landscape Institute.

This course covers:

  • design modules, where you lead the landscape design process, using a range of drawing and modelling techniques and softwares, taught in studio; and
  • theory/ professional practice, where we explore the issues affecting our environment, visit, study, and discuss professional landscape architecture.
  • This is a two-year programme (full time) and the fee varies each year. You may also consider applying for the postgraduate diploma in Landscape Architecture.
