Summary

This course is designed for anyone interested in becoming a professional landscape architect. You’ll engage with landscape, urbanism, agriculture and infrastructure projects in the UK and abroad.

The core component of the MA Landscape Architecture course is based in the design studios of our new state-of-the-art building in Stockwell Street. Students work with academics and practitioners to develop projects and review designs. You'll be pushed to develop innovative and distinct approaches to landscape architecture, culminating in a final design project and thesis. Teaching is informed by technical and theoretical seminars, with guest lectures from international artists, designers and academics.

The course will open up career paths in landscape architecture, planning, and urban design. Graduates of the MA Landscape Architecture have gone on to lead design projects including the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and the Eden Project.
