Overview

The postgraduate diploma is an advanced programme of design and professional studies for students who wish to become chartered landscape architects. You can top-up your postgraduate diploma into an MA by carrying out additional design or practice-based study.

This highly-regarded course explores values, knowledge, skills and techniques appropriate to the development of creative, reflective designers. You can negotiate a programme of studies to broaden and deepen knowledge and skills relevant to your individual interests, needs and career aspirations.

You will have the opportunity to respond to current environmental challenges and issues relevant to landscape architecture, which may include live projects and competitions. The major design project applies thematic design research to a project site at a range of scales, along with two studio options for your negotiated study, linked to staff research and specialisms.

You can see examples of student work on our Leeds School of Arts website and in our end of year show publication.

We are proud to be celebrating 50 years of landscape architecture at Leeds Beckett University.

This course is accredited by The Landscape Institute (subject to annual reaffirmation of accreditation).

INSIDE/OUT

The INSIDE/OUT lecture series offers historical, theoretical and critical analyses of art, architecture and design and welcomes internationally recognised practitioners to come and talk about their practice. Find out about forthcoming events on the INSIDE/OUT webpage

Research Excellence Framework 2014
Research Excellence Framework 2014: our University's results for the Architecture, Built Environment and Planning unit, which it entered for the first time, were impressive with 37% of its research being rated world leading or internationally excellent.


Accredited by:

The course has many links with professional practices both within the region and further a field. A further professional practice examination is taken after two years in practice.

You will have access to an excellent learning environment which includes multimedia studios equipped with drawing boards, computers and model-making facilities, a 24/7 library, specialist workshops and the Sustainable Technology & Landscape Resource Centre.

We understand that full-time study does not suit everyone. That’s why we offer courses which give you the opportunity to decide where, when and how you can get involved in learning. Studying a distance learning course offers the convenience and flexibility to make education work for you. Whether you’d like to fit your studies around childcare, develop your skills while working or, quite simply, want to learn from the comfort of your own home, we can help you gain a qualification at a time and pace that suits your lifestyle.

Like our students on campus, you will have the same excellent teaching and learning resources, however you’ll find these online instead of in a lecture theatre. Not only are all the modules taught online, but you will also have access to an online community and more than 140,000 books and journals in our online library.

Studying part-time gives you the flexibility to learn at your own pace. Because of this, our tuition fees are calculated using credit points. Each module you study has a credit point value. Most modules have a credit point value of 20. The tuition fee for students entering in in 201920 on this course is £661.60 for each 20 credit point module. For modules with a different credit point value their cost can be calculated by multiplying the credit value of the module by the cost per credit point of £33.08. The amount you will pay may increase each year in line with inflation.
