This course offers a unique opportunity to become a leading urban designer of the future. The programme leads to qualifications in both disciplines, making for highly employable graduates with truly holistic and critical awareness of the built environment.
The course takes advantage of the close relationship between two of the country's leading architecture and landscape architecture courses.
Lectures are delivered by staff from both departments at the forefront of their field, ensuring that a rich, diverse and current knowledge base is delivered. This knowledge is then used to support studio teaching where it is tested and developed through a variety of studio-based design projects.
The course framework offers modules from architecture and landscape and specialist, course-specific modules that address the principle aim of the course: the integration of architecture and landscape design. In the first year projects might include developing proposals for a small building in a public landscape. By the third year the brief for the building and its environment will be more complex and may focus on a substantial piece of urban design.
The course is accredited by the Landscape Institute (LI) the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and gives exemption from RIBA and LI Part 1, making it the only such course in the UK.
The professional environment is keen to employ graduates from the course because of their unique dual educational experience. The course has run for over a decade and produces highly skilled alumni working at some leading UK and globally-significant practices.
