Summary

This is a two-year programme offered jointly by five of Europe's leading landscape architecture institutions: Edinburgh School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture (ESALA); Akademie van Bouwkunst, Amsterdam; Leibniz Universität, Hannover; Ecole Nationale Supérieure du Paysage (ENSP), Versailles; and Escola Tècnica Superior d’Arquitectura de Barcelona (ETSAB).

The programme offers you a unique educational experience and an opportunity to design your landscape architecture training to fit your aspirations, interests and skills.

You will be immersed in very different European cultural and pedagogical environments, greatly enriching your perspective and development as a designer.

The five partners approach the technical, aesthetic and ecological issues of landscape architecture in very different ways, at scales ranging from the urban site to the rural region. You will therefore experience a wide range of landscapes, methods, and skills, establish links to private- and public-sector employers across Europe, and be exposed to the daily life and culture of some of Europe's most diverse and exciting cities and regions.

1 course option

Qualification European Master's
Level SCQF Level 11
Entry requirements

An undergraduate honours degree in landscape architecture. We will also consider your application if you have an undergraduate honours degree in architecture and a portfolio that demonstrates a strong interest in landscape architectural issues. All applicants must also meet our English language requirements.

As part of your application you must indicate the institutions you would prefer to attend during the two semesters away from Edinburgh. Whilst we will take your preferences into consideration, we cannot guarantee that places will be available in your preferred institutions. You must familiarise yourself with the language requirements of the partner institutions before you apply. It is your responsibility to ensure you meet the language requirements of your preferred institution/s before you begin your studies.

Assessment

The programme is based on the principle of student mobility. You will study for two semesters in Edinburgh and choose two of the partner institutions to study at for one semester each. Courses include design studios, seminars, and lectures, which vary with the institution and semester. All students convene for a summer workshop run by one EMiLA partner on a rotating basis. These workshops are designed to be substantive and fun, and to stimulate thinking about the future challenges the landscape architecture profession will face.

The programme has been reviewed by the International Federation of Landscape Architects (IFLA) and currently has ‘Candidate Accreditation’ status with the Landscape Institute.
