Course summary

The Postgraduate Diploma in Landscape Architecture (PGDipLA) programme embraces aspects of the science, planning, design, creation and management of landscape in both urban and rural environments, and at all scales, for example, from a small garden to an urban centre and then regional scale. The emphasis is on promoting landscapes that are aesthetically pleasing, functionally appropriate and ecological healthy, while at the same time being able to accommodate the diverse and changing needs of society. Therefore, our programme is based on a rich and diverse curriculum which is both interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary in nature, and which draws on the traditions of both the creative and innovative design process based on strong environmental and ecological principles. Design studios provide the advanced knowledge and skill sets through real life design projects with sector collaborations supported by lectures, seminars, charrettes, workshops and exhibitions.

PGDipLA is supported by an extra-curricular programme including study tours, garden visits, guest speakers, guest jury in the design studios, London city walks, office visits, drawing workshops, CAD sessions, exhibitions as well as student-led publications. The Research Colloquium lecture series provides students with a platform to meet the research community and so developing personal interest through social gatherings.

Delivery and Assessment

The most successful teaching method across the UK for Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Interior Design, Art and Environmental Planning and Design has been this combination of design studio and classroom.

The Landscape Architecture course engages in this method of teaching by organising its professional programmes through lectures, seminars, studio and site visits as a critical combination for learning. As a studio-based design course, Landscape Architecture is taught through core seminars and lectures in landscape theory, landscape ecology, history and advanced design studio. These modules are accompanied by study i.e. in professional practice, landscape construction, landscape assessment and environmental design.
