About the course

The Postgraduate Diploma in Landscape Architecture (PGDipLA) programme embraces aspects of the science, planning, design, creation and management of landscape in both urban and rural environments, and at all scales, for example, from a small garden to an urban centre and then regional scale. The emphasis is on promoting landscapes that are aesthetically pleasing, functionally appropriate and ecological healthy, while at the same time being able to accommodate the diverse and changing needs of society. Therefore, our programme is based on a rich and diverse curriculum which is both interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary in nature, and which draws on the traditions of both the creative and innovative design process based on strong environmental and ecological principles. Design studios provide the advanced knowledge and skill sets through real life design projects with sector collaborations supported by lectures, seminars, charrettes, workshops and exhibitions.

Student Profile(s)

Rob Dwiar

The courses I completed at Writtle have provided me with a wealth of knowledge and skills from design techniques and writing skills to critical thinking and conceptual approaches to work. After recognising my stronger areas of knowledge and expertise the courses provided me with the opportunities to explore them and to gain great confidence in them.

Writtle has provided me with the best years of my life – 5 as a student, 1 as a full-time staff member. The experiences have given me irreplaceable memories, friends for life, a thorough training and comprehensive knowledge/skill set. I now have the confidence in my field and to make a successful career in it.

There were very few, if any, modules I didn’t enjoy at Writtle. All were interesting and provided me with high levels of knowledge. I particularly enjoyed my design dissertation in the undergrad and theory modules in my postgrad. The freedom given to me to choose what to design or write about and then to provide me with full support and advice from lecturers who were genuinely interested in what I wanted to do/write about/cover/design etc was excellent.
