This course is a unique opportunity to qualify as both an architect and landscape architect. It is open to students with previous combined or separate degrees in both architecture and landscape architecture. The degree is awaiting prescription from the RIBA at Part 2, LI Part 3 and the ARB.
Your study focuses on a range of themed, design-based studios dedicated to specific areas of practice or research. There are compulsory modules in landscape architecture, humanities, management, building and plant sciences, and an integrated architecture and landscape architecture project.
To qualify as an architect, you’ll produce at least one comprehensive design project. You’ll also have the opportunity to work with local or regional groups on a real-life challenge through our Live Projects initiative.
Advance your career
Our graduates are architects, project managers, urban designers and client advisers.
