Student Profile

Sam Marshall

Graduated in 2021

Having originally graduated in graphic design, Sam Marshall changed direction by studying MA Landscape Management part-time, over two years:

"I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience on the MA Landscape Management course which I had undertaken part-time over two years. The University and staff were very accommodating and flexible during my studies, as I balanced this with the requirements of full-time employment.

The department provides a stimulating environment for learning through a collective of inspiring staff, modules and other students.

This has provided me with a greater insight and understanding of numerous aspects of landscape, which I can now confidently progress into a professional setting.

I cannot speak highly enough of the department and the landscape management masters course and would encourage anyone considering it to do so.

The skills and experience I had previously combined with the knowledge I have learnt during my time at Sheffield has established a grounding in Landscape Architecture which I look forward to utilising as my career develops."
