Course content

This Diploma Landscape Architecture programme is designed for individuals interested in becoming professional Landscape Architects. It is a 9-month programme for graduates from a BA Hons Landscape Architecture.

The core component of the Diploma 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. Examples of student work can be found on: http://thelandscape.org/

Direct entry to the Diploma Landscape Architecture requires a design portfolio as well as completion of a BA Hons Landscape Architecture. The Diploma Landscape Architecture is part of a Landscape Institute accredited route to becoming a professional Landscape Architect.

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.
