Course content

Postgraduate Diploma in Landscape Architecture is accredited by the Landscape Institute and the International Federation of Landscape Architects.

This is a two-year conversion course for graduates who want to qualify and work as professional landscape architects. Whether you have a background in design or not, it will help you develop the skills needed for modern landscape architectural practice.

The first year provides a thorough grounding in the design, social, technical and scientific aspects of the profession. You’ll learn about the history and theory of landscapes, develop visual and IT skills and tackle a broad range of design projects.

The second year gives you the opportunity to specialise in landscape planning, design or management, or to take a cross-cutting approach combining more than one aspect. During the Special Project, you’ll work on a landscape architecture solution for a real-world site of your choice.

Teaching
There are lectures, seminars, workshops, tutorials, critical feedback sessions, site visits and practicals.

Assessment
You’re assessed on coursework assignments, dissertation, oral presentation and examination.
