Course Summary

Course Summary

The Professional Landscape Architecture programmes at UEL are a recent addition to the courses accredited by the Landscape Institute, the professional body for Landscape Architects within the UK. The MA in Professional Landscape Architecture is a programme for those who hold either a Bachelors Degree in Landscape Architecture or a Landscape Institute accredited ‘conversion’ qualification and a degree in another discipline.

At UEL, through design studio, live projects, and investigation of theory, we explore key issues in contemporary life - migration, inequality, climate change, urban growth, food security - through Landscape Architecture, employing knowledge, tools and models in use, and in development globally. We investigate our understandings of these ideas with passion and commitment; we explore the ways in which landscape, nature and place are socially, as well as physically, ‘constructed’. We seek to develop critical awareness and personal understanding of landscape, and from this, to cultivate an individual, considered approach, primarily to the design of publicly accessible places. Our teaching supports the acquisition of the skills and knowledge that we know are relevant to professional practice now, while developing personal trajectories for the future, within this broad professional field.

Full accreditation

We have full accreditation from the Landscape Institute and our students emerge with excellent employment prospects . Our course is supported by award winning practitioners. We will help you build professional networks while still at UEL.

Your Future Career

The integration of landscape design with architectural and urban design practice is of ever- increasing importance. Landscape Architects are more and more in demand professionally, nationally and internationally. There is a high industry employment rate. Most accredited programmes graduates find jobs on leaving education. 85% of landscape architects are working in full-time roles (Landscape Institute 2016). Our School has links with a range of landscape architectural practices, and will give you invaluable experience of working collaboratively with other disciplines, on live projects and with professionals in the field.

Students at the University of East London have a strong track record in gaining employment – and a reputation for being talented designers who show skill and sensitivity. Our Masters in Professional Landscape Architecture will set you on the path to a rewarding and exciting career in Landscape Architecture.
