MA Landscape Architecture (Landscape Institute / 1 year full-time)
This postgraduate programme is designed for individuals interested in becoming professional Landscape Architects. Graduates from the programme, which is recognised and accredited by the Landscape Institute, have joined some of London’s leading landscape practices, have founded award-winning international design studios and have led strategic urban design projects like the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
The core component of the MA Landscape Architecture programme is the design studio where students engage with landscape, urbanism, agriculture and infrastructure projects in the UK and abroad. With a team of academics and practitioners the students develop their design projects through tutorials and design reviews. They are supported to develop innovative and distinct approaches to landscape architecture, which, that are reflected in their final design project and dissertation thesis. This design teaching is informed by comprehensive technical and theoretical seminars and guest lectures from international artists, designers and academics. Students are also encouraged to engage fully with the design and digital studios, 14 green roofs and the workshops of the new Stockwell Street building throughout the programme.
Direct entry to the MA Landscape Architecture requires a design portfolio as well as completion of either the PG Certificate Landscape Design or a BA Hons Landscape Architecture. The MA is part of a Landscape Institute accredited route to becoming a professional Landscape Architect.
The minimum requirement is normally expected to have an upper second class degree in Landscape Architecture; however, in the selection process a great deal of emphasis is placed on the design portfolio which is submitted digitally or presented at the interview.
