Study type Taught


Our MA Landscape Architecture with Integrated International Pre-Masters is a year-long preparatory course of study to ready you for your Master’s in the UK, developing your English speaking and writing together with your specialist skills, research acumen and confidence in working autonomously.

UCA's new MA in Landscape Architecture will allow you to develop deep specialisms in your existing knowledge, and become an expert in researching and intervening in complex ecosystems and landscape design challenges.

Taught at the Canterbury School of Architecture and Design, this course, within its stimulating, creative and supportive environment, will see you formulate an individualised approach to landscape design. Through research-led practice and experimental design, you will be able to develop and demonstrate specialist expertise and knowledge, and showcase your designed outcomes in a refined final portfolio.

Our degree can be a launchpad to potential higher level landscape architecture and design careers. You will have access to advanced forms of fabrication and testing, the latest scanning and VR technology, and a suite of traditional craft based workshops, all of which will allow you to bring your design proposals to life. You will have the freedom to establish your own unique specialisms, such as practical plant-based knowledge.

Specialist areas you might choose to focus on in your projects could include ecological design, climate knowledge, carbon capture landscapes, horticulture, agriculture, ecosystem repair, urban landscapes, or specialist land management. You can work with interesting heritage and sustainability questions, engaging with both contemporary technology and traditional landscape crafts, as well as exploring both digital and ‘real’ space.

You will be taught through one-to-one tuition, seminars and self-directed study in our designated studio spaces and workshops, engaging with practitioners and academics who offer expert industry and research intelligence. The course includes regular reviews with visiting critics from across relevant industry sectors and international study visits.
