Course summary

Landscape architecture is a creative discipline that focuses on intervention in the landscape through imaginative design, strategic thinking and scientific precision. It analyses, represents, reclaims, reinvents and constructs Landscapes as places with meaning. Landscape architecture is positioned at the interface between art and design, and the physical, natural and social sciences. You will explore landscape and environmental topics with contemporary relevance to both urban and rural contexts. You will learn skills that prepare you to face some of the most meaningful challenges currently happening in our cities and wider territories. These include resilience to climate change, regeneration of polluted and contaminated areas, or adaptation to the increase of human populations. Our programme is committed to educating designers who are creative, inventive, intelligent, rigorous and ethical in their practice as both students and professionals. Our staff are also designers, makers and theorists who engage with both local and global landscapes in their ongoing research practice. Our programme is structured in three interconnected strands: design, theory and techniques. We have a unique relationship with the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh (RGBE), where you will learn about plants and horticulture from world-leading researchers and scientists. You will also have the opportunity to take up practical working opportunities worldwide. We currently offer exchange opportunities with renowned landscape architecture institutions in mainland Europe and Australia. **BA Programme** We also offer an alternative three-year BA programme which will enable accelerated progress or development, and may be selected by students towards the end of Year 2.
