MODULES & LEARNING

Gain the foundations to develop your knowledge, understanding and subject specific skills relating to the planning, design and stewardship of both the urban and rural outdoor environment.

Reflect on your recent work and learning needs selecting activities to help you enhance your professional development. Studio-based learning will be combined with lectures, seminars and fieldwork where necessary.

Prepare for professional practice as you discover the trends and issues relevant to contemporary landscape architecture, including the scope of work, methods of approach and responsibilities of practising landscape architects.

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

Compile a thorough portfolio that demonstrates your professional experience. Your portfolio will include a written reflection and your tutor will guide you as you determine its content.

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 filp-top drawing boards, parallel motion boards and model-making facilities, a 24/7 library, specialist workshops and a Sustainable Technology & Landscape Resource Centre, due to be completed in 2017.

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.

This course is fully accredited by the Landscape Institute which is the final university qualification that enables you to become a graduate member of the Institute. A further examination is taken after working in professional practice before you become a Chartered Landscape Architect.
