Course content

This postgraduate programme is designed for individuals interested in becoming professional Landscape Architects. Graduates from the programme, which is recognised and accredited by the Landscape Institute, have joined some of London's leading landscape practices, have founded award-winning international design studios and have led strategic urban design projects like the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

The core component of the MA Landscape Architecture programme is the design studio where students engage with landscape, urbanism, agriculture and infrastructure projects in the UK and abroad. With a team of academics and practitioners the students develop their design projects through tutorials and design reviews. They are supported to develop innovative and distinct approaches to landscape architecture, reflected in their final design project and dissertation thesis. Teaching is informed by comprehensive technical and theoretical seminars and guest lectures from international artists, designers and academics. Details of international events, open lectures and student events can be found at thelandscape.org.

Accreditation

Direct entry to the Master's degree in landscape architecture requires a design portfolio as well as completion of either the postgraduate certificate in landscape design or a Bachelor's degree with honours in landscape architecture. The MA is part of a Landscape Institute accredited route to becoming a professional landscape architect.

Outcomes

The aims of the MA Landscape Architecture programme are to:

  • Act as part of a professionally accredited set of programmes, for students wishing to become Landscape Architects, leading from the Certificate Landscape Design or BA Hons Landscape Architecture
  • Establish social, ecological and design processes as a fundamental aspect of landscape architecture
  • Encourage design experimentation leading to advanced and exceptional forms of designed landscape.


Facilities

The Department is based in a new state of the art building designed by the award winning architects Heneghan Peng; it is equipped with fourteen rooftop landscapes, cutting edge digital workshops, extensive design studios, a world-class library and two gallery spaces.
