More information 


Landscape Architecture is a discipline that focuses on intervention in the landscape through the activities of planning, design and management. It also focuses on the science that underpins these activities and the implementation of proposals. It is united around the concept of landscape, which is defined in various ways but is generally understood to mean outdoor spaces, environments and places and relationships between people and these spaces, environments and places, both in terms of activities and perceptions.

Landscape Architecture is concerned with landscapes of all types, both urban and rural, and at all scales from the smallest open space to the region.

In the programme, we use a mix of individual study and group project work. Teaching modes range from formal lectures and seminars or field trips to tuition on studio-based design projects, opportunities for research range from library-based research to field work.

Assessment methods include writing examination papers, essays and reports, but also hand-drawn or digital graphic-based plans and images. We consider open, public presentation and criticism of design projects important. We discuss realistic planning, design or management problems, which form the basis of the project work. A relatively large proportion of the curriculum is dedicated to design studios, field visits, and research.
