Student Profile(s)

Tobias Edwards

Every day is exciting because you are challenged and learn something new. I feel grateful to be able to learn and practise something about which I am fascinated and passionate.

My goal is to work as a Landscape Architect as soon as I finish the MA course. Completing the course will ensure I have the necessary skills needed for a graduate position in a world-class firm. My dream is that my future career will enable me to be involved in large-scale projects all over the world.

I’ve learnt a great number of skills studying here including developing briefs, ideas and design concepts, understanding ecological processes and knowledge of how to design with plants and construction materials.

My experience of studying Landscape Architecture at the University of Sheffield was absolutely fantastic. Everything I learnt on the MA course has given me an amazing grounding for my career and the support and encouragement I received from my lecturers gave me the confidence I needed to start up my own business.
