Master of Landscape Architecture programme fully accredited by the Landscape Institute

Our 2 year landscape architecture masters degree now has full accreditation status

4 July 2023

In June we received the fantastic news that the Master of Landscape Architecture is now fully accredited with the Landscape Institute. Following an accreditation visit to the school in February, the Education and Membership committee voted to approve the master on the basis of being a high quality programme. The LI praised our accreditation presentation, as well as the content delivery of the programme, teaching methodologies and thinking around future curriculum developments, which they felt were all excellent and demonstrated a high level of professionalism.

The Master of Landscape Architecture launched in September 2020 and has since developed a unique ethos and identity.  Landscape Architecture is constantly evolving to respond to the climate and biodiversity emergency, to acknowledge diverse modes of knowing and doing landscape, and to make access to landscapes inclusive for all.  In our studio-based learning, we focus on a series of principles that envisage landscape planning, design and management as a conduit for planetary health and well-being.  From design as life-centred, more-than-human and multi-sensorial, to design as a slow and subtle set of temporal actions open to change. These principles build on one another and are threaded by art and ecology which are intertwined in landscape architecture.

The recognition by the Landscape Institute of the quality of the programme is a testament to the hard work of many people: our landscape architecture and professional support team, our external tutors, our professional review group, and our past and present students that through their projects and insights have helped shape the programme.
