University of Sheffield
The taught part of the course - from autumn of year one to summer of year two - leads to the Postgraduate Diploma in Landscape Architecture, which is the professionally accredited qualification. You can then continue over the summer period of your second year to complete a dissertation, leading to the award of MA. The Special Project helps you develop your professional competence. You may specialise in design, planning or management. With guidance from a member of staff, you'll work on a landscape architecture solution for a real-world site. You choose the site - it could be in Sheffield or in your home town, even if your home town is in another country. The work is presented in an end-of-year exhibition.
MA: Good Honours degree, ideally in a subject related to landscape or design, for example: ecology, geography, geology, architecture, engineering or fine art; or relevant skills and experience. English language requirements: overall IELTS grade of 6.5 with a minimum of 5.5 in each component, or equivalent.
