Manchester Metropolitan University

Landscape Architecture

Based within Manchester School of Architecture and awarded by Manchester Metropolitan University, the Master of Landscape Architecture is a route to an internationally recognised qualification in a fast growing, global profession. The MLA combines an emphasis on individual practice and an exploratory, experimental approach, with a strong professional underpinning. It is both a conversion course for graduates of related subject areas and a final postgraduate year of education for landscape graduates. As a part of the Manchester School of Architecture, based within Manchester School of Art, students have access to an impressive range of workshop and studio facilities, based in an award winning building, and all just a few minutes' walk from the city centre.

Entry requirements

MLA: Students eligible for the MLA will normally have a minimum of a second class degree in a closely related subject area. The following disciplines are typical although this is not an exhaustive list and the suitability of all applicants will be assessed via a combination of portfolio and interview. Candidates with a minimum of a second-class degree in an accredited UK undergraduate Landscape Architecture course will normally be accepted directly into Part 2 of the MLA. Candidates from other countries with an IFLA recognised undergraduate qualification of an equivalent standard may also be eligible for direct entry at year 2. Candidates from other very closely related disciplines (principally Architecture and Urban Design) may be considered, subject to providing evidence of a Level 6 understanding and knowledge of additional subject areas specific to landscape architecture.
