Landscape Architecture is distinguished by its’ position at the interfaces between art and design, and the physical, natural, environmental and social sciences.
This programme is concerned with the conservation and enhancement of landscapes all types, both urban and rural, and at all scales from the smallest open space to whole regions, for the benefit of current and future generations. It considers the complexity of interactions between humans and natural processes and the consequences of these interactions on the landscape, and how this can be managed and maintained to provide a high quality environment for both humans and nature. A range of themes are explored through case studies and project work and landscape management, design, planning and science are all reflected within the scope of the programme.

A key feature of the programme is the development of vocational and professional skills and students benefit from access to the extensive estate and managed ornamental grounds within the campus and a range of high quality resources to support learning. In addition, a 5 week work placement in the second year ensures that students are prepared for professional working life and Elements of Practice within the Landscape Institute educational framework are embedded within the curriculum content. Professional knowledge, values and ethics are reinforced throughout the programme but particularly at Level 6 to reflect the Landscape Institute Pathway to Chartership programme.

The course features:
- Develop employability skills through work experience placements

- Direct learning from the industry through guest speakers, site visits and study tours

- This course is supported by the Landscape Institute.

- Facilities include £8 million National Centre for Horticulture, the Environment and Sustainable Technology, including design studios, an aquaponic glasshouse and 2021 commissioned 200m2 Vertical Farming Centre.
