Why Landscape Architecture? Our Landscape Architecture degree is one of the longest running in the country and benefits from full accreditation with the Landscape Institute, along with IFLA (International Federation of Landscape Architects) Europe recognition. The course will help you develop your skills in experimentation, creative thinking and social interaction, as you gain an understanding of theory, design work and an introduction to professional practice. You’ll focus on creating landscapes for sustainable living in the future, balancing scientific understanding with aesthetic and functional design. With opportunities to gain work experience on placements with organisations such as Terrapin Bright Green in New York, MIT in Massachusetts, the Canal and River Trust in Gloucester and MHP Design in Cheltenham, our graduates stand out from the competition. Previous students have also worked on live briefs at a range of sites such as Pittville Park and St James' Square in Cheltenham, Prinknash Abbey and Kings Square in Gloucester, plus Wapping Wharf, the Diesel Depot and Temple Meads in Bristol. You’ll draw on the expertise of experienced lecturers and be inspired on field trips exploring historic, contemporary and cultural landscapes in locations such as Copenhagen, New York and Barcelona (additional costs may apply, see course web page for details).
