You’ll need a 2:1 honours degree or an equivalent qualification related to design in the built environment, such as architecture, landscape architecture or urban planning. Your degree doesn’t have to be design- based. If you have a lot of professional design experience we’ll consider your application.
We’d like to see your portfolio to get an idea of your design abilities.
