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 town 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. And we may ask you to come to an interview.
