What sort of careers do graduates pursue?

Landscape Architecture has been taught at University of Greenwich since 1965, so many graduates find employment through the expansive alumni network in London, across the UK and overseas.

Some Landscape Architecture graduates work in architecture, landscape architecture or urban design practices. Other graduates have joined government design and planning offices to develop urban strategies and policy. Some graduates have also followed further studies through doctorate research.

Do you provide employability services?

The School of Design has an Employability Officer for postgraduate students to consult about opportunities relevant to the course. They work closely with professionals in industry to ensure you are well-prepared for the workplace and have begun to build your professional network by the time you graduate.

The central Employability and Careers Service also provides support for students preparing to apply for placements and graduate roles, such as CV clinics, mock interviews and employability skills workshops.

Modules

The aim of the module is introduce and experiment with a range of techniques, for surveying, recording, drawing and modelling in order to develop and represent landscape projects. On successful completion of this module a student will be able to: collect site data through contrasting site survey methods from landscape architecture, ecology and art practice; develop drawing and modelling techniques to communicate research and proposal stages of landscape architecture projects; research and synthesise within their design projects ideas from contemporary landscape architecture and art precedent; research different contemporary representation techniques, to understand how they are composed and constructed, and how they could be applied in landscape architecture projects; and apply digital skills in the development and representation of design projects.
