Course summary

As a combination of art, function and natural systems, landscape architects design the world outside. From urban squares, streets and parks to natural forests, rail and roadways, they integrate solutions to combat global issues like climate change and ecological decline. Landscape architects create rich, positive experiences for people and provide designed environments which engage users with dynamic experiences and a strong sense of place. This course covers all aspects of landscape architecture and is fully recognised and accredited by the Landscape Institute (LI). Experience on-site with live projects and within the design studios of local practices will develop your design creativity and hone your professional practice skills. Work placements and competitions provide the opportunity to generate experience live projects, win awards, and build a professional network before you graduate. Foundation Year The foundation year is designed to give you the opportunity to develop your academic and interpersonal skills while developing your subject knowledge further to support you to success on your academic path. By studying a foundation year, your first year will be spent learning a wide range of broad subject areas which then open up opportunities for you to specialise further in your next year – which would be the first year of a full degree programme.
