Why you should study Landscape Architecture and Garden Design at WUC…

  • You will have access to specialist studios and technical resources.

  • Our graduates have received high-profile design awards.

  • You will have opportunities for frequent interaction with design professionals, providing one-to-one feedback.

  • Our land-based background provides an opportunity to experiment with ecological principles, materials and design ideas on your own individual plot during your studies.

  • You will be taught and advised by those practising in the professions of landscape architecture and garden design.

  • Our courses develop a solid foundation in landscape and garden studies, offering a range of pathways for you to enter the landscape profession.

  • You will be encouraged to express your own ideas and concepts through individual research proposals, presentations, design portfolios and exhibition work, so you are ‘industry-ready’ when you graduate.

Landscape design is both a well-established professional activity and an academic subject. As an academic subject, it is underpinned by research and scholarship in a wide range of areas that draw on the arts and humanities, the physical, natural, environmental and social sciences. Research and scholarship generally inform teaching and learning, seeking to understand what landscape means, how it is formed over time, what factors continue to shape it, how it is used by people and what measures can be taken to conserve, restore and manage existing landscapes, and to create sustainable and inclusive landscapes for the future.
