Landscape Architects design and manage spaces of all shapes and sizes, from busy urban centres to housing developments, urban parks, golf courses, and private gardens. They are involved with planning and ensuring designs are sustainable, that the environment is enhanced rather than damaged by development. This course combines creative modules with a sound scientific background.
Design projects will be undertaken that cover all aspects of design, beginning with smaller-scale projects and culminating in the final year with complex schemes to prepare you for life in a Landscape Architecture practice or as a landscape consultant.
Here at Myerscough, we are situated within beautiful grounds with access to a golf course, arboretum and rural landscapes. As students, you will also have access to UCLan in the bustling city centre of Preston.
Another benefit of studying Landscape Architecture at Myerscough is the multi-disciplinary team that you will be working with. We are the National Centre for Excellence in Arboriculture and you will be able to engage with leading tutors in the field. We also have excellent horticultural facilities. This particular course has a strong horticultural basis. Landscape Architects who understand and can use their knowledge of plants are in demand in industry.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
