This creative and reflective two-year Master's degree empowers students without a landscape architecture undergraduate degree to pursue a career as a landscape architect. Landscape architects shape the future of cities and rural environments alike.

About this degree

Students gain an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the discipline of landscape architecture and the related profession, informed by current practice, scholarship and research. With design-led teaching and learning, they will learn how to design, using a range of techniques and research methods, equipping you to progress towards a career as a landscape architect. 

This is a two-year, 300 credit Master's degree.

This programme consists of ten modules, five per year, all of which are compulsory. 

Upon successful completion of 300 credits, you will be awarded a MLA in Landscape Architecture.

Why study this degree at UCL?

In the design studio, students will develop individual projects, documented in design portfolios, to increasing levels of complexity and ambition as the programme progresses, supported by tutorials, seminars, crits and interim reviews. 

Student work with a team of landscape architects, researchers and built environment professionals to inform your creative design practices. The Bartlett School of Architecture is renowned for preparing students for successful careers 

In REF 2014 46% of The Bartlett’s research was rated 4* i.e. “world-leading”, with a further 35% recognised as 3* i.e. “internationally excellent”.* The Bartlett submitted the largest quantity of 4* world-leading research outputs (156 items) of any university submitting to the Architecture, Built Environment and Planning sub-panel. On “Research Environment”, which grades the “vitality” and “sustainability” of the research environment, the Bartlett received the highest score for submission to the Architecture, Built Environment and Planning sub-panel.

This programme empowers students with the contextual knowledge of the history and theory of landscape architecture, alongside the ability to apply research to design and professional scenerios, be they speculative, theoretical or practical.
