Course Summary

Course Details

In the urbanised landscape we inhabit, every part has been designed or at least influenced by human beings. Take a broad view or look in detail and you will see a complex living organism that is the canvas for landscape architecture. On this course, you will explore techniques which will help you become a creative and reflective designer, primed to start a rewarding career as a chartered landscape architect. We are experts in landscape architecture - our teaching experience spans more than 50 years. We also have a proven track record of helping graduates find rewarding careers. We are dedicated to ensuring your course suits your needs, so you will be able to tailor your studies towards your career aspirations. Through live projects and competitions, you will be tasked with responding to the numerous environmental challenges facing today's landscape architects. On this flexible, studio-based course, you will benefit from our multimedia studios equipped with drawing boards, computers and model-making facilities, specialist workshops.

Course Benefits

Your projects are supported through lectures, specialist workshops, small group seminars and one-to-one tutorials, together with UK and overseas study visits. You will benefit from our multimedia studios equipped with flip-top drawing boards, parallel motion boards and model-making facilities, a 24/7 library, specialist workshops and a Sustainable Technology & Landscape Resource Centre. The virtual studio (CAGD) provides a valuable learning environment particularly for part-time students and those studying at a distance. The studio provides a forum for tutor support and feedback as well as opportunities for creative dialogue with colleagues. Many students choose to undertake 'live' or practice based projects working with local community organisations or for clients such as the Amsterdam planning department and you will become part of an extensive network of landscape practitioners and researchers.

Modules

You will apply key research and analysis techniques, theories, strategies and design processes to an urban or rural landscape design project of interest to you.
