Additional Information

UEL’s Professional Landscape Architecture programmes build your skills for a future career in landscape architecture in the context of key issues in contemporary life – city expansion, migration, diversity, inequality, competition for resources, climate change, food security. We challenge you to consider your understanding of what landscape is about, what it can and should do. You’ll learn through design studio, through site visits, and by interaction with professionals and academics across a range of spatial and environmental disciplines, as well as getting hands on, with the practicalities of building now, for existing needs with real clients and communities.
We support you to develop a personal attitude to landscape design, to express yourself spatially, to investigate ideas with passion and commitment. We work in tandem with architecture and urban design students, who investigate the same sites through a different lens, providing opportunities for interdisciplinary working, as well as individual expression.
