The Landscape Architecture and Urbanism programmes (BA, MA, MLA, MSc and PhD) at the University of Greenwich are focused on the speculative design of future landscapes and cities informed by site-focused research.

The programmes encourages design invention and experimentation from within one of the oldest schools of landscape in the UK, with notable lecturers such Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe and renowned graduates such as Marti Franch Matllori. The school is the only institution in London offering Landscape Institute [LI] accredited education from BA to Masters.
